With the advent of social media, the term "ghosted" has become a popular occurrence. Anonymity becomes possible through of distance created through social media, making "ghosting" such a easy thing to do. It is so easy to become the "Ghostee" not the "Ghoster". Although it is such a common thing, it does not hurt less. However, being on the receiving end of this "ghosting" ends up really sucking. And, it makes it even worse if you are "ghosted" on "read", meaning the other individual just looked at your message and chose not to respond. Harsh.
As you probably guessed, I was/ am "ghosted" by someone recently. Woo. After sending a direct message of a direct question, I did not receive a message of days. And, that, friends, is when I realized something was wrong. A "ghosting" was already past the horizon and the sun was setting. I had given the grace period of a couple of days of letting someone have the time to answer. It was go time, and I was "ghosted" hardddddd. Although I don't exactly mind being "ghosted" by this particular individual because I was not enjoying the conversation or the other individual anyway, the act of "ghosting" itself can be absolutely frustrating. Not even answering a direct question asked really just shows lack of interested and blatant effort to not respond because the message was read. And, with such, not answering becomes really rude.
I understand all these "ghosters" out there. I have been there done that. The art of "ghosting" itself is very simple to master. "Ghosting" gives people the upper hand though, and sometimes it feels good to "ghost". You are so dang desirable that you actually have people replying to you who you can go up to and "ghost".
And, to all them ladies out there, aspire to be that "Ghoster". Get that upper ground.
