For those who don’t know, ghosting is when someone stops texting you without any explanation why. We’ve all had it done to us. But why does it hurt so much?
Probably because it can feel like the ultimate rejection. You imagine that not only isn’t the person interested in you, but they consider you so unimportant that they won’t even take 30 seconds to let you know. They have no problem leaving you hanging for days, wondering if they’re just busy or flaky, until it finally dawns on you that you’ll never see this person again.
Of course, you have no idea what’s going on in someone’s life to make them ghost and trying to guess the reason why is an exercise in futility.
