The Epidemic of Ghosting

The Epidemic of Ghosting

In this new digital world of dating, well let’s face it digital way of living, people feel free to act in ways they wouldn’t normally IRL. Whether it be sending naked photos to strangers, bullying, or ghosting. Ghosting, in case you have been living under a rock is when someone you have been “talking to” or dating simply vanishes without a word.

I was recently ghosted by a 42 year old man we will refer to as Starbucks Matthew. I don’t feel the need to hold back when it comes to shitheads so I let him know he was my inspiration for this.

The Epidemic of Ghosting

Is there anything really more cowardly or cruel than making someone think that things are going great, and then just disappearing? No goodbye, no explanation, no reason, just poof gone. Not even the decency to muster up the lame ass it’s not you, it’s me.And why not? Odds are you will never have to face the ghosted party again. We live in a society where you meet online and no longer through acquaintances of other IRL scenarios.
How easy it is to treat people so shitty when there is no accountability. Cowardliness is the new norm. There is no one to confront the ghosters, so they have no shame in their behavior. No one deserves to sit around and wonder what the f*** they did, because someone else decides to be a piece of shit. It seems that in this new society manners, etiquette, and hell, human decency are dying at an alarming rate.

Don’t allow yourself to be defeated by these fuckboys. You are amazing!

If you are single in this brave new world, odds are you will be ghosted at least once if you haven’t already. It’s very easy to say don’t take it personally, it’s not you, it’s them. Well, duh, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt like hell. Let’s try something new though. Let’s use our pain to reflect on how we treat others in this new world and do better.

Dating Today Sucks and Here's Why

Dating Today Sucks and Here’s Why

  1. Dating Today Sucks and Here's Why

Dating Today Sucks and Here’s Why:

Everyone is a commitmentphobe talking to multiple people at all times. People are so busy looking for something better, that they don’t build a relationship with anyone. Most dating is online instead of IRL, which is awkward and tedious. In this new digital age of communication, it is as if people no longer know how to truly interact with others in a meaningful way.

via GIPHY

How can you ever make a real connection when you are battling cat fishers, competing with endless other people, ghosting, and countless other insanities. You have to be prepared for the ceaseless stream of first date interviews (sometimes worse than an actual job interview), most over obligatory coffee. Even if you battle through and ace your first date, that is where the real games begin.
via GIPHY
People don’t date anymore, they hang out. They text at midnight seeing who will respond. They play games. Well, we had a great date now I can’t text for three days. They get a text that makes them smile, but put the phone down because they can’t respond to quickly, in fear of looking desperate. The emotional tug of war that comes with today’s dating is exhausting.
I’ve been single long enough to know these games, but that doesn’t mean that I want to play them. There is nothing more vial then people who purposely play with others emotions just because they can. Man up people, it’s okay to like someone, it’s okay not to like someone. It is not okay to act like you like someone and then disappear with no explanation.

via GIPHY

The millennial’s version of “dating” is sad. It’s not our fault, this is how society is training us. Welcome to the new world of confessing our feelings over text and social media, but a real face to face relationship is no longer the norm.
I am not looking for a pen pal do not message me for weeks on end with no intention of meeting IRL.   Don’t ask me to come “watch Netflix and chill”. Don’t text me at 1 a.m. on a Saturday because I won’t be impressed. Don’t expect to get laid, I am not DTF. Let’s keep it simple, try just not being a douche.

via GIPHY

How can anyone find this millennial dating fulfilling?  Meaningless “hangouts”, shallow people, and obsession with finding something better. If so many people are unhappy about this, then let’s force a change.  Let’s start by respecting other people’s feelings. Let’s stop accepting behavior that is the new “norm” and start holding out for behavior that is worthy of us.
