Don’t ghost me!

If you are over the age of 35, you are probably wondering what “ghosting” is. Ghosting is the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication. This is something that is currently done all the time when someone wants to end a relationship. I feel this practice is ridiculous and cowardly. What happened to telling someone that you just don’t think it is working out? What happened to the good old days when you just said, “It’s not you, it’s me. We need to end this.” I personally think that if you are a real adult you should not be practicing the concept of “ghosting”. However, this has happened to me. I am over 40 years old, and yes I have been ghosted by another 40 year old. The fact that I was ghosted made me so upset because I felt that it was the cowardly way of getting out of the relationship. It also leaves an open door for that person to show back up without any warning, if they regret their decision. They have the option of saying, we didn’t break up, I just needed some time. That is exactly what happened to me. This person had the nerve to contact me after not having any communication with me for 2 and a half months. Of course, I didn’t respond. When you ghost somebody, you don’t deserve another chance. Stop this concept of ghosting and end your relationship like an adult with communication and closure.
