[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! - Yeah, how do you beat around the bush with this? This is-- - This means sex, we get it. - Jealous. - Jealous. - Ooh, jelly is like jealous. - Wow, he's so hot. I'm so jelly you're talking to him. - Or like, "Maisie, don't be peanut butter and jelly". - 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. - Nah I'm explaining these terribly everyone. 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. - Thank you Vanity Fair, I hope you learned some new terms. We will not be responsible for any damage to relationships caused, but try and use them whenever you can. Good luck. - You're so cute. Maisie. [laughing] - I'm going to make us [indistinct].
