What does Zumping mean?

Breaking up with someone through Zoom

Zumping is when someone breaks up with their partner using the Zoom video conferencing application. This trend picked up during the COVID-19 pandemic, as social distancing regulations prevented couples from meeting face-to-face to end their relationships. It’s an unexpected twist that an app used to keep relationships afloat was also used to sink them.

Being zumped can be a tough pill to swallow. But remember, it’s not the end of the world. Amidst the chaos of the pandemic, it might be a good idea to pick up a new hobby or activity to distract yourself and deal with the stress.

One such activity is rage baking. It’s a fun and delicious way to channel your frustrations into something positive. Baking can be a soothing activity, and the end results can be rewarding and tasty.

Another worthy pursuit is working on your fitness. It’s an excellent way to keep yourself busy and avoid gaining the infamous quaranfifteen, the extra pounds many have put on due to staying at home during lockdown. Plus, working out can help boost your mood and self-confidence.
