I think it depends on the definition of ghosting. If you suggest that blocking or deleting someone is also ghosting I would say that it's happened to me, yet I'm not into revenge. If the definition is one of just not talking to someone else yet leaving the door open sort of speak, then yeah I've had that happen too. Generally I find that the ghoster or blocker, has a misunderstanding or prejudges someone without asking or getting confirmation on the situation at hand, if I generally like someone and they ghost me or block me, generally I can conclude they are ether cynical and or have a low self esteem, and couldn't possibly think that a guy would like them for themselves, rather they immediately conclude that the guy is either a player or something else negative, yet the negative thoughts based on their past experience is more to blame. If a ghoster or blocker contacted me, we'd address the problem and get to the bottom of it, chances are they will still oscillate between ghosting or blocking at times when they expect more attention or are going through a rough patch but they think you should just know or see it through the internet.
I have been ghosted and I have ghosted others. I don't think it's a terrible idea, unless you have pretty frequent communication. An abrupt cut-off after several texts a day over the course of weeks can come as a bit of a shock. "Did you get hit by a bus?"
Never been ghosted but I did ghost a girl one time because during our dinner date she started talking about how she is getting together with another guy to do "homework" until 3 AM on a Saturday night.
I don't know if her intention was to show me that she is "in demand" or to push me away but regardless, enough for me to say adios.
Yep One girl blocked me after I had caused a strain on the dating bit. Tried explaining myself because I had a chip on my shoulder, so I messaged her, knowing the she may or may not reply. Turned out she blocked me. I was ready for it though, it's just sad that people handle things like this, this way. Not very mature. Prob another reason why we didn't work out. dunno who cares
Revenge is for immature people.
