When it comes to New Year's resolutions, many people vow to revamp their romantic life, whether it's to end a bad relationship, get out and date more, or try to find one meaningful connection. And while using dating apps is pretty common in today's culture, the ways in which people connect (and disconnect) from them seem to be constantly evolving (the term "ghosting" definitely wasn't around 10 years ago).
