A new trend in dating is for women to cross out men whose names begin with the letter “J”.
Since 2019, TikTok videos urging people to avoid romantic relationships with a “J name” man have garnered millions of views.
Urban Dictionary’s definition of the dating trend reads: “The J name theory is that anyone (whose name begins) with J is a complete c**p and you shouldn’t date them.”

I saw one that said, “You can only trust guys named Jack, Jim, and Joes (after famous drink brands).”

In response, Kenzi said, “The worst guys I’ve dated have J names.”
