Hyberdate

blending Noun / Verb
1. (n) Refers to someone who “hibernates” when dating. 2. (v) To settle down during the winter by dating someone until the weather warms.
 
It has two alternate meanings. One may mean that someone “hibernates” while on a date, meaning that he/she shuts off all contacts from family and friends when dating. The second meaning is looking at where the word hibernation comes from. The word is used to describe animals’ preparation to endure the cold. Someone then, gets through the cold by finding warmth not by stocking up and sleeping, but dating.
Etymology : It combines the clipped word "Hyber" from "Hybernating"/"Hybernation" and "Date".
