SORRY I’m an old lady who has been out of the dating game for awhile. Is “feeling some kind of way/a certain type of way” cool slang nowadays, or is just something they all have picked up in the house? They say it SO MUCH, and for a broad range of emotions. You could really make a drinking game of it!
I've heard that one, although the one I keep hearing this season is “POINT BLANK PERIOD”. Is that a new popular phrase for early 20's folks? Now that I'm in my late 20's, I have no idea. haha
I hate that! It’s the lazy way to express your feelings without actually expressing them. You feel some kind of way about me? Hatred, love, who knows? It’s just some kind of way. Stupid.
You are watching: Feel some kind of way
“feeling some kind of way/a certain type of way” is at least 5 years old. Its a term I use when Im mad or upset but I know the feeling is superficial. If I said that I'm mad or upset it would imply too much depth to the emotion. The emotion/ feeling is valid, as it is how I feel, but pre-exsiting terms do not accurately convey it. It can also be used to describe a broad range of emotions as you said. In a complex situation you usually feel many things at once and its not common in everyday conversation to just list out all the emotions. If you were talking to a younger person and you said that you are “feeling some kind of way/a certain type of way” the listener may not know your exact feelings but they would have an idea of their complexity
Dude I had a co-worker who used that phrase, like, not in a dating setting, but just at work. “You guys didn't tell me there was cake in the break room, got me feelin some type of way” Like not that exact situation, but she just used the phrase at work all the time. So cringe
OMG! I was just coming here to ask this question. I'm not that old but I had never heard it before this season. I really hate it…Like allot. Just insert an emotion that is appropriate. You are making me feel good, nice, special, bad, mad.
Someone said 5 years old, but it’s at least a decade. I’m 31 though so maybe it wasn’t around for the younger people lol.
