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. Butif 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 Amy* who was ghosted by her guy after he introduced her to his friends and his dog:
This early on in a casual relationship, it's totally fine to realize you're just not that into it and call it quits. So that's why I don't understand why this guy felt the need to completely ghost Amy! Rather than leaving her hanging, why not just shoot her a quick text and tell her you're not feeling it? Why leave her hanging in purgatory like that?
Has this ever happened to you? Were you ever the ghoster in this situation? Do you know where he's coming from? Whatever the case, comment your opinions below!
