And, somehow, things have gotten worse still: Breadcrumbing is the fresh way for daters to eff with the people who are expressing unrequited interest in them. Breadcrumbers will send you sporadic messages, slide into your DMs here and there, or throw you a like on Instagram just frequently enough so you don’t lose interest, but not too much so the relationship actually moves forward.
Breadcrumbing, defined by Urban Dictionary as “the act of sending out flirtatious, but non-committal text messages (ie "breadcrumbs") in order to lure a sexual partner without expending much effort,” equates to leading someone on.

He said Zinhle was a spoiled brat who just did not know what she wanted in life. However, they DID attend a Kings of Leon concert last night together.They arrived separately and literally like one picture of them even near each other at the concert exists and I can’t even find it right now, but with Kendall Jenner it legit seems more plausible that she’s dating the guy she’s standing 3 feet away from at a concert rather than the guy she’s always being photographed with.
