By: Gay.com

Datejà Vu

[deyt-zhah voo]

1. In psychology, the illusion of having previously dated someone who is actually being encountered for the first time.
2. Discovering a disagreeable familiarity or sameness between a current person of interest and someone whom you have previously dated.

In a sentence: While at dinner with a potential new boyfriend, Rodney heard his date's passive-aggressive comments and felt a sense of datejà vu, as though he hadn't learned from previous experience and was once again courting an insecure man.


Thanks to Rodney for this week's word!
