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 Claudia* who was ghosted by the guy who went out of his way to reassure her that he would be there for her no matter what.
Read the story from her point of view here:
So what do you think of Claudia's story? I always have a problem with people not responding to blatant questions. This time, I would go so far as to say that it's even worse because of the type of question she was asking.
By not answering that question, in particular, he was saying that he doesn't want to continue communication with her. At least, that's my take on it.
What do you guys think? Have you ever been through something like this? Can you understand where he's coming from?
I'd always love to hear what you're thinking! Feel free to share your own ghosting stories with me here.
