As if dating or merely trying to find a decent dinner companion in 2017 wasn't hard enough, a new trend is discovered.

While we're all home this Christmas try not to get "Marleyed!"

Marleying?  The definition :  It’s when someone from your past (a high school crush or a local Ex) comes back to "haunt" you, a.k.a, hit you up for a holiday booty call.

If you're single no judgement here! 

As we all know, Marley is one of Scrooge's ghosts from the past that comes back to taunt him. And when we all go home, those ghosts are still floating about. 

 According to The Sun:

eHarmony named the phenomena after Jacob Marley, Scrooge’s deceased business partner in the classic Charles Dickens novel, A Christmas Carol, who appears as a ghost on Christmas Eve after being gone for many years.

Though it's not the worst decision to make, it can be not the smartest.  But hey, the heart wants what it wants!

So 2017 and love, need some space. 

Bring it on 2018!!
