'Tillerson-ed' is the perfect dating slang for these chaotic end times

Tech 1 week ago Mashable 14

It's 2018 and "ghosting" someone you were in a relationship with? That's so last year. 

Now it's all about Tillerson-ing people. The term, which is admittedly a real mouthful, was coined Tuesday in the wake of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson learning he was out of a job via Donald Trump's tweets. The good folks on Twitter have turned his misfortune into a verb that perfectly describes so many of our dating woes. 

People have been sharing stories of the time they ended a relationship via social media or uh, non-traditional means. 

CONFESSION: I once Tillerson-ed an ex by breaking up with him via changing my relationship status to “Single” on Facebook

The day before Valentine’s day

Not my best moment.
