Roaching is the act of dating around without telling the other people. When confronted with someone questioning them they use the excuse of not being aware of being in a monogamous relationship. The term is derived from the adage that if there is one cockroach around there are usually many more.

Example Use: So even though we have been on quite a lot dates and are sleeping together I found out they are still out there dating. Apparently because we hadn’t “had the talk” they assumed we were both still seeing other people and they have been Roaching the whole time.
