The practice is strongly associated with Instagram, but since relationship soft launches tend to not label themselves as such, it is unknown when exactly the first relationship launch may have happened on the platform. The phrase continued to be used sporadically on Twitter throughout the latter half of the 2010s without generating a large amount of engagement up until July 12th, 2020, when comedian Rachel Sennott tweeted about the practice, receiving nearly 130,000 likes in two years.
