Saw this NYT article on ghosting a few weeks ago and thought it'd be good to post because I occasionally use the term in this blog.  It talks about what it is (disappearing without a trace, explanation, et al) and why people do it.  I've done it before.  Why?  Because I didn't feel like the guy I was ghosting deserved a response.  I also felt that he should realize my ghosting was an end to the relationship, us dating, or whatever it was.


  1. I find "ghosting" to be immature. If I'm not feeling someone, I just say "thanks, but I'm not interested. It doesn't take much to do that. In your opinion, what would a guy have to do (or not do) to not deserve a response?

    1. You're right, it doesn't take much to do that. For me, he doesn't deserve a response when he's been rude, condescending, flaking, or whatever other things I've called out that continue to be a problem
