The sensation of realizing you've been ghosted is an unwelcome one leaving the most secure among us wondering,
What kind of person just disappears like that? Who doesn't have the decency to dump someone to his or her face? Was it something I did? Do I not deserve love? AM I A MONSTER WHO DOES NOT DESERVE LOVE? AM I A MONSTER WHO LIVES IN A MOUNTAIN, WHO DOES NOT DESERVE LOVE AND EATS LIVE BIRDS FOR SUSTENANCE? IS THAT HOW PEOPLE SEE ME?
In what could either be construed as comforting or doubly depressing, you are not alone in your bewilderment. People all around the world are being ghosted daily, with no answers to comfort them in their newly single states.
Redditor hoffy87 recently asked male users,
Guys who have been 'ghosted' by girlfriends, what is your story?
Sometimes, you're lucky just to get a confirmation.
You quickly learn long-distance relationships are the perfect breeding grounds for ghosty behavior.
Occasionally, the lack of explanation leads you to a profound life lesson.
It becomes clear how easily a weekend away can turn into simply being away.
The ordeal may force you to do some deleting.
In the end, it's always for the best.
A ghost does not make for a satisfying partner. One day, you'll find a flesh-and-blood human who answers your texts and -- if it's that true, timeless, soul mate kind of love -- your calls.
