    Smile tryst or trysting

    One could reason that there was legitimate public interest in the kind of trysting/tryst that might cause emotional problems if any combination of these astronauts might be together in space.

    Which should I use here, trysting or tryst, and why? Thanks.
    Does trysting or tryst mean dating covertly?

    Re: tryst or trysting

    The noun sounds better to me. A tryst doesn't have to be covert, though it often is.
