  • - Hey, Vanity Fair,

  • we are the cast of The Kissing Booth 2.

  • - And we're here today to run through

  • some dating slang with you.

  • - Let's do it!

  • - Woohoo! - Woo, woo.

  • [laughing]

  • [upbeat music]

  • - I know it all too well [coughs]

  • - Ghosting is basically like,

  • you just disappear from a person's life

  • and there's no responses, there's no reaching out.

  • It's as if you completely like, are nonexistent

  • in their world anymore,

  • like social media, texts.

  • - That Homer Simpson GIF,

  • when he just disappears into the bushes.

  • - Into the bush. [laughing]

  • - That is ghosting.

  • - Haunting, Zombieing. [laughs]

  • - I feel like I've experienced this.

  • I've had people hop out of the woodwork

  • and like no die, die.

  • [laughing]

  • - Has anyone actually used this before in their life?

  • - No. [laughs].

  • - I've never heard of it until this very moment,

  • right now. - Never.

  • - Okay.

  • - I believe I have heard of this, let me ask.

  • Is it when you like, it's like a dip your toe in a ghost.

  • It's like, you're gonna like slowly make excuses

  • why you can't hang out, slowly stop texting the person.

  • It's called "the slow fade"

  • instead of like being honest with somebody

  • and telling them you don't wanna talk anymore.

  • You're just like, "I feel bad, so I'm gonna slowly go away."

  • - I think it's even worse than ghosting,

  • like I'd almost prefer like, a sudden thing

  • than someone like slowly creeping out.

  • I think, - Me too.

  • - It's like, pick one.

  • - It's like they slowly get-- - Are you in or are you out?

  • - More and more transparent.

  • - Yeah, it's like they're waiting for

  • that moment when the penny drops, and you're like,

  • "Oh okay, this is what's happening."

  • And, then that whole bit before then you're just like,

  • "Oh my God, this person has like really sick family,

  • you know, and it's just all these constant excuses,

  • and you connect the dots, and you're like, "Okay."

  • - Pull, oh I think I got this one.

  • I can only think of this in like hunting terms like,

  • what was the catch of the day, right?

  • Like what did you catch that day?

  • - It's like so, if you went out,

  • and you're like "Oh, did you pull?"

  • it's basically, did you hook up with someone?

  • Did you get with someone?

  • It can be like, simple kiss or more.

  • But, if you pulled it's like,

  • you made a sexual interaction with someone.

  • - That makes a lot more sense.

  • - Wait, is this a UK term?

  • - Yeah, this is like, I remember this one

  • this is an old school UK one.

  • - I got it, I got this one.

  • I know what this means.

  • I was filming The Act actually

  • and it was kind of like, you know

  • springtime during this moment,

  • and I got on set and I wore cuffed jeans

  • that day and I walked in and I was like,

  • "It's cuffing season everybody",

  • and I thought that actually meant it

  • was like the season where you cuff your jeans,

  • and then someone came and told me [laughing]

  • "No Joey! That means that you like cuff somebody,

  • like basically you get with somebody.

  • - When it gets cold out, you know like winter,

  • fall, people love being in relationships and so

  • they need someone to be with and like you

  • just kind of handcuff yourself to

  • someone for the cold months.

  • - Oh, that's why it's cuffing. - Yeah, that's what it is.

  • - Yeah, it sounds negative!

  • It sounds like, "Oh my God, this guy

  • just cuffed himself to me. It's like I can't

  • get rid of him, he's just so needy".

  • - Isn't this one like a guy is coming onto a girl

  • and a girl can curve him, just like,

  • put him like completely to the side

  • and just like go by him.

  • - It's like you're driving, you're like, "Nah".

  • [laughing]

  • - Yeah, basically.

  • - Anyone guilty of curving before?

  • Present!

  • - Down to--

  • - Find the relationship, to find the relationship!

  • - Not to judge anybody, but if you're saying,

  • "Down to relationship", you must be under the age of--

  • - Wait but it's not down, it's define.

  • - Oh define!

  • - Define the relationship.

  • [laughing]

  • - Define!

  • - You're on Tinder like, "Yo, are you DTR?"

  • - You down to-- [laughs]

  • Yeah they're like, "What do you mean?

  • Are you DTR?"

  • - What?

  • Does this mean like you're stalking someone on Instagram

  • and then you accidentally like something

  • from a very long time ago?

  • - That's definitely what it is.

  • - Oh wow.

  • - Joel's definitely speaking from experience.

  • - Oh yeah, you can tell. - I've 100% done that,

  • I just didn't know that there was a term for it.

  • - There was a meme too.

  • It's like the guy, if the Jason, the guy with

  • the Jason mask all the way down the street,

  • and it's like when you like a photo from someone

  • from two years ago and he's like.

  • I don't be like, "Yo, my sis was like all into this dude".

  • And then she went like, deep liking and he saw it

  • and showed his buddies and then finish my sentence, Joey.

  • - And then, someone found $5, it was crazy.

  • - Bokkie!

  • It's a South African one.

  • It's like an affectionate way to kind of call

  • your girlfriend or like, yeah, your bokkie.

  • It's like a, it's a short term for a bok.

  • - Like a buck, like a deer?

  • Yeah, like a bok, like, you know the springboks.

  • - Cute little buck, Okay.

  • - Meganne, you're my bokkie.

  • - Oh, you're my bokkie.

  • - Oh left on read. - Oh left on read.

  • - Nothing worse, you know,

  • Taylor has his read receipts on and I [laughs]

  • Do you remember this?

  • Like a month ago I texted you and I was like,

  • "Just friend to friend I'm just warning you,

  • in case you didn't know, you have your read receipts on".

  • - What did you say? You go,

  • "Yo, that's pretty brave, man".

  • - I said I was like, "That's bold!"

  • - Well I hate when I text someone and

  • I don't get a text back for hours

  • and so I said, "you know what?

  • I'm going to put the ball in like my own court and be like,

  • I read your thing and I'm not responding,

  • or like, I've read it and I will respond".

  • - There's nothing worse than when I text

  • Taylor something and then it's like,

  • read at 2:47 PM, I'm like, "Nice".

  • - It's kissing.

  • - Snogging is like full-on tongue and everything.

  • - Oh snap, okay.

  • - The first time I heard snogging was Harry Potter,

  • and it took me like two weeks. - Me too!

  • - Who were they talking about, Cho?

  • Cho and Harry?

  • - Cho Chang and Harry. - Yeah.

  • - Oh my God.

  • - It's such a like visceral word.

  • It's something it's just like it's kind of animalistic.

  • - Yeah.

  • - It's not, it's not cute.

  • - So I have some friends from India and

  • anytime I'm on my phone, they go,

  • "Are you phubbing, Taylor?"

  • And so it's like ,when you're in a conversation

  • or at a dinner table with someone and you're on your phone,

  • and you're not paying attention to what's

  • going on around you.

  • - Oh, that's a fun word for that.

  • You know what I do when people do that?

  • I just look at them and I go,

  • no matter who it is,

  • I go, "Ain't family time".

  • - In real life.

  • - Oh, man one time I caught a baseball at the stadium IRL.

  • Well, that was not a dating slang, but you get the point.

  • [laughing]

  • - My favorite is um,

  • " Oh yo, they don't look like that IRL,

  • that's just how they look on their Instagram".

  • - That's a good one, I like that.

  • Oh, this old thing.

  • The oldest trick that the sorry,

  • the newest trick in the book.

  • - Yeah, this means sex.

  • [laughing]

  • - Taylor!

  • - Oh wow, that's good.

  • - Stukkie, my stuk.

  • It's South African, I think it's like--

  • - I feel like I've heard this.

  • - It's like, yeah, my partner, my girlfriend,

  • boyfriend, my like love.

  • - Can I try saying it in Afrikaans sentence?

  • - Yes.

  • - Yes. - Okay.

  • How's it? Who hunted me, stukkie.

  • [laughing]

  • - Whoa, look at you.

  • - Does that make sense? [indistinct]

  • - Did that work?

  • - It was good.

  • - Uh, thirsty basically, like that means you are like

  • seeking attention from a certain somebody or

  • just from, you know, people in general cause

  • you need that fix.

  • - I thought it was like, you know, when the desert's

  • been dry for a while and you just like, you know,

  • you want to pull.

  • [laughing]

  • - Oh, nice - Nice.

  • call back, Maisie.

  • That is a much better way of explaining that.

  • - Getting back together with your ex?

  • - Someone use it in a sentence.

  • - Yo, for real she's backsliding with him?

  • - Whoa, Whoa.

  • We never said to add an I N G at the end,

  • I said, to use backslide in a sentence.

  • - I can't use present because--

  • - What about this, how about this?

  • [noise of frustration]

  • After all that warning, I gave them,

  • they're really going to backslide?

  • - Oh, that's a good one.
