Ghosting – What Is It?

It’s the newest way to end a trend a relationship – ‘Ghosting’!

What is ghosting?

It’s when someone suddenly cuts all ties and communication with the person they’ve been seeing. Basically, it’s a way to break-up with someone or avoid dating them again.

This form of breaking up is very popular for people who use online dating sites.

Why use ghosting to break-up?  Some people feel that if you ignore the person you are dating, that ‘jilted’ person will eventually get the hint and realize their partner isn’t interested anymore.

Ghosting sounds ‘cowardly’ to me.

What happened to the lame excuses like, “It’s not you-it’s me”, “I’m just not ready for a relationship right now, but if I were-you’d be the one”, or “”I just really need to focus on my job right now”!
