What happens when you’re talking to someone … and then you lose interest? It’s unfortunate, but it happens. How you handle it though, is something that you have control over. It’s just sad that our generation’s go-to method for ending complicated relationships is ghosting.

The term has been around for a while, and you would have to live in a cave to not know what ghosting means. It means disappearing from someone’s life digitally. That means, you stop texting, stop answering calls, stop liking their pictures and you stop interacting with their tweets—basically you cut that person off entirely.

In the times that we are in, it’s easy to ghost because most of our relationships are maintained through the phone.

Why do people ghost?

To be honest, it’s to avoid conversations like this …

There’s one of two ways to end an “entanglement” with someone. You either have an honest conversation which will very likely bruise some feelings. Or you ghost.

As someone who’s done it both ways, I can say ghosting is definitely easier. But as someone who’s been ghosted as well, I have to say, that shit hurts.

So, what does the court of public opinion have to say about just getting up and ghosting on people?

Do We Not Owe Each Other The Decency Of An Explantion?

Or Is Irresponsible To Just Ghost On Someone

So evidently, there’s a case to be made for ghosting and against it. What do you think? Have you ever ghosted? Have you ever been ghosted? What was your experience?
