Ghosting is defined, as “the act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone the subject is dating, but no longer wishes to date.” This is done in hope that the person simply gets the hint and moves on with their life as if nothing happened. The practice of ghosting is one of the worst new trends of dating in the 21st century. Ghosting leaves the other party feeling horrible with no closure wondering what they did wrong to be treated in such a way. It is the ultimate adult form of the silent treatment. In my opinion ghosting is the lazy/cowardly and immature way of ending it with someone. People have feelings and they deserve the courtesy of having a proper ending, even if it is hard it’s the right thing to do. If you have recently been ghosted just remember to take the high road, keep your head up and be the bigger person. The chances are high that you were too good for them anyway.
