What is Ghosting in Dating and Where Does the Term Come from?


What Is Ghosting In Dating

Urban Dictionary defines ghosting as “the act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone, and no longer wishes to date. This is done in hopes that the ghostee will just “get the hint” and leave the subject alone, as opposed to the subject simply telling them he/she is no longer interested”. If you believe that your partner is ghosting you, he/she probably is. Sorry.

While some situations of ghosting may be more obvious than others, the best mode of action is to wait and see if the person reaches out to you; if they do not text or call for more than 2 weeks, THEY ARE not interested.

It’s the bitter truth that some people are just not interested, but it can be a positive sign that the person is not right for you. Think of all the time you have just saved yourself with dealing with someone that does not deserves your time and love.

We must not give up hope on relationships, but we must have enough reason to decipher if the person is truly interested, and not something concocted in your head. However, there is good news to all of this…you didn’t get that attached, so you can still move on. The reasons someone ghosts, is because they are not looking for a committed relationship, or are dating multiple people. These missteps in dating are not your fault. The ghosters usually fit this stereotype, and are not looking for anything serious, so its needless to worry about what you could have done.
