Ah, ghosting. It's the dating phenomenon that happens when people are too cowardly to actually end things with the people they've been seeing, so they choose to just… disappear instead.
Ghosters are idiots. But if you've ever been ghosted, know that you're not alone.
In this weekly column, I share a tale of a time a reader was ghosted (with accompanying screenshots) so you can see the last text that was sent or words that were uttered before someone decided to disappear forever. I present to you: Boom, Ghosted.
This week we have Julie* who was ghosted by the guy she spent months hooking up with just three days after they decided to finally try being in a real relationship.
Don't believe me? Read the story straight from Julie, herself, here:
So what do you guys make of all this?
I think what weirds me out the most is the fact that he decided to disappear for good just three days after admitting he was in love with her. Yes, they were drunk, but he admitted to remembering everything the next day! I don't get it.
Did his feelings change after his accident? Did he use it as an excuse to disappear?
If you understand where he was coming from, comment below and ENLIGHTEN ME. If not, I want to hear about why you think this guy is a jerk for ghosting. Any and all opinions are more than welcome.
As always, if you have your own submission for "Boom, Ghosted," please feel free to send it over to me at email@example.com.
