You are dating a coward if
Block their number, set their email address to spam, unfriend or block them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and remove them from your contacts on whatever other apps you’re connected on ― all of it. Unless, as I mentioned above, you killed their cat or lit their house on fire, then you can’t fault yourself for their behavior.You’re not just doing this so as to prevent yourself from reaching out and having the last word (which you will over and over again), but should they decide they want to be an adult and break-up properly or, even worse, have you in their life again, you don’t want to give them that opportunity. Don’t even waste your time trying to figure out what you did wrong, what you could have done differently, or anything that puts the blame on you. Ghosting, in case you’re late to the party, is when someone you’ve been dating just ceases all communication with you and pretty much drops off the face of the planet.One day you can think everything is going well and you’re about ready to finally introduce the person you’re seeing to your parents, then suddenly they’re gone.
In the one time I was ghosted, I called him out on it.Without someone in common to point out just how cowardly it is to ghost, the ghoster (yes, we’re making that word now) can just disappear, leaving the person they ghosted wondering what the eff the did.Honestly, unless someone killed your cat or lit your house on fire, no one deserves to be ghosted. Since manners and etiquette are dying at an epic rate in our society, meaning there’s a good chance you’ll probably be ghosted at least once in your life, you might as well prepare now.There’s no goodbye, no explanation, or even the weak, “It’s not you, it’s me,” line; they’ve just vanished and in most cases there’s nothing you can do about it.According to relationship expert Rachel Sussman, author of The Breakup Bible, technology is actually helping to make ghosting more common.
You don’t want to ever give them a reason to think that them ghosting you was a good idea.
