This Girl Was Ghosted By A Guy After She Made One Stupid Joke


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 Marie*, who was ghosted by the guy who deleted all of his dating apps for her after she made one STUPID joke.

Read the story from Marie, herself:


OK... am I missing something here?!

I mean, I didn't think her joke was that bad. Do you? Like, was there some sort of super offensive thing that I somehow missed?! PLEASE fill me in.

As far as I'm concerned, this was all totally out of the blue and weird.

OBVIOUSLY she doesn't want him to actually quit his job and move to a different country with her, right?!

Is this guy just dumb? Maybe she dodged a bullet.

I always want to know what you guys think, so please comment your thoughts on this situation.

Have you ever been through anything like this? Have you ever been on his side of it? Do you see where he's coming from?

If so, enlighten me, PLEASE.

As always, if you have your own "Boom, Ghosted" story you'd like to submit, please inbox them to me here.
