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 one of the most heartbreaking stories I think we've had in this column.
Wendy* was ghosted during one of the most vulnerable times in her life by her boyfriend AFTER SHE MOVED TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY FOR HIM.
Don't believe me? Take her word for it:
I don't know about you guys but I think this man is PURE EVIL. She went out of her way to be there for him in his time of need, then he just completely bailed on her during hers.
Beyond that, he came crawling back to her, only to break her heart ALL OVER AGAIN.
As far as I'm concerned, there's no justifying this level of disrespect. I don't care if it was the love of your life or a random girl you just went on a couple of dates with, no human being deserves to be treated this way.
My personal opinion aside, I'm still curious to know what you guys think. Are you on the same page as me? Or maybe I'm missing something here. Let me know your thoughts!
As always, if you have your own story about being ghosted, feel free to message them to me here. And read our last installment here.
