Green dating is the act of recycling an old flame. This can be due to a dry spell or the amount of time since the relationship ended has been enough that the reason for the breakup doesn’t seem as important/terrible. Therefore you reduce you time on the market, reuse an ex-lover and recycle them into a good-enough-for-now option...until something better comes along.
Kerry: So, I heard you are dating John again…I thought you said you couldn’t stand him
Betsy: Yeah, but I figure he can’t be as bad as I remember, and since I don't have any decent new prospects I have resorted to green dating to get me through the cold winter!
The act of recycling partners within the same dating scene, sort of like musical chairs but with STDs, jealousy, and guilt.
Man, we need to move to a new city. Every eligible girl I know has slept with half of my friends. I don't want to resort to green dating.
