It always takes me a while to know I'm being ghosted. For one thing, I'm on my phone pretty much constantly, but it's unfair of me to assume others are quite as plugged in (I have accused a man of ghosting me after he took a record seven minutes to text back). Also, sometimes people strategically wait a while to respond to a text. I don't usually assume I've been ghosted until I've sent a follow-up text that was also ignored. If you've been in a similar situation and you think you're being ghosted, you might not want to jump to any conclusions. Instead, consider sending one of the following texts to determine if you really are being ghosted or if the other person simply hasn't responded yet.
I personally don't ghost, and I don't love when it's done to me (understatement of the century). Still, there are valid reasons why someone might not respond to a text (and there are even valid reasons why someone might think ghosting is the best strategy, so if you've done it, you don't have to beat yourself up about it). You may not want to give up on someone you like just because they miss one text (although it's also totally fine if you do want to), so if you're looking for a text to send before you decide you've been ghosted, look no further.
