Do people not realize that Casper was really not a friendly ghost? He was disrespectful and self-centered.............so is Ghosting someone that you have dated or cared about. Whether you have went on one date, or been with someone for a long time, or are simply friends, it truly doesn't matter. This type of behavior is simply not necessary. To disappear and not speak about it is emotionally cruel to the other person.
Are people so afraid to have those in depth conversations that might "sting" for a minute or cause tears, that they want to leave someone scarred or hurt, and left wondering forever what happened? Have we as a society forgotten the Golden Rule?
The Site Plenty of Fish states that 80% of those between 18-33 that are Single have practiced Ghosting Someone............ With Social Media and Technology so prevalent, have we become a Culture of Cutting Off??????? It takes decency and feeling to understand that all that most people really want is to have that final conversation. It really is not about the What you say to someone, but it is about the HOW you say it!!!! And when you Ghost someone, How you are saying it leaves questions, hurt, and the recipient wondering what they did so wrong? When you ghost someone you insult them and do not give the closure that they really deserve and need most of the time.
Before you decide to go Ghost someone, please understand that it takes just a short time, and some respect to talk to the person. You might have emotions that you are not ready to have, and they might display emotions on top of it all, but to walk away with self-respect and dignity is so much better than to just walk away.
If you are the one that has been the recipient of ghosting, just remember this: There is nothing wrong with you. The person treating you in this manner is the one with the issues. Either they simply don't understand how their actions have affected or hurt you, or they simply don't care. Regardless it makes them the lesser person- NOT YOU!
