2018 was a mother effing rollercoaster ride in terms of relationships. SO. MUCH. HAPPENED. From new marriages (hello, Duchess of Sussex) to surprise breakups (goodbye, Jenna and Channing) and strange dating phenomena (like BDE and curving—aka when someone is indirectly not showing any interest in you), celebs and the average person alike had more than enough excitement for one calendar year.
And if you thought things ended there, think again. Turns out, there were plenty of other weird AF dating trends and happenings that didn't make headline news. Here, we rounded up some of these WTF stats to prove that this year, we all damn near lost our minds. Read and share at your own risk...
