I personally think Ghosting is the worst thing ever to do to someone; it just leaves them hanging and doesn't give them an answer right away. it lets the person wait and wait and wait for you, finally get the hint, then begin to wonder what they did to push you away. it just creates so much insecurity and messes people up in the head.
you should NEVER ghost on someone you called your boyfriend/girlfriend (unless extreme situation) in my opinion. but moreso, if you've taken someone out for more than 2 dates and communicate with them regularly, i really don't think it's fair to ghost. a simple "hey i'm sorry but i don't see this going anywhere" is better than just basically ceasing to exist to the other person. ghosting means the other person wasn't even worthy of you "breaking up/breaking things off" with them and that is a sh*tty sh*tty feeling.
so i ask you, lovely girls and boys of GAG. com, what do you think of Ghosting? if you've done it, why did you do it? i'm not judging i'm just genuinely curious as to why people do it, knowing what it does to the other person. and people who got ghosted, how did you react and deal with it?

I've never done it, and would never do it. However, I was ghosted by the one girlfriend I've ever had. When I realized that she was ghosting me it was honestly the worst I've ever felt. I thought everything was amazing with us and really liked being with her. We weren't together super long but I still had major feelings for her, and I was absolutely crushed that she left. This all happened about 3 months ago and the first couple months after I was borderline depressed and thought about her constantly, which only worsened my sadness. Its a little better now, but there are still days when I miss her so much and just can't do anything else because she's all I think about. I doubt a relationship with her will ever happen so at this point I just want answers for closure. Bottom line, I feel like ghosting is the absolute worst thing you can do to someone, it makes it seem like you never cared about the person which I thought she genuinely did care. I really think people who do it deserve to have it happen to them just so they know how awful it feels. Breaking up with someone is fine if you don't want to be with the person, but everyone deserves to know why so they can move on too.0

Worst thing ever?
No. Not by a long shot...
But it is shitty to do.0
