bird boxed

a.k.a. bird box, bird boxing

An online dating expression that describes being blind to just how bad your partner is, or the person you’re seeing. It can also refer to ignoring someone, or pretending you don't see someone who is trying to get your attention.

Historical perspective: Inspired by the Netflix movie hit Bird Box of 2018, bird boxing is when someone you’re dating treats you terribly, or is just not good for you, but you’re so consumed by your feelings for them that you continue to date them anyway.
