Have you ever ghosted someone you’ve been dating?
If you have, shame on you. If you don’t have enough kindness and character to tell someone that you don’t want to see her/him anymore, then you shouldn’t be dating. You should spend your money on therapy and work on yourself first. For those of you who have been ghosted, it is an awful experience.
Why? For starters, the rejection actually activates pathways in the brain associated with physical pain. You can actually reduce the emotional pain of rejection by taking pain medication.
In addition, ghosting is so difficult to experience because you’re left feeling powerless and rejected. You start to question if you meant anything to the person as well as questioning yourself and your own judgment. “How did I not see this coming?” “How can I ever trust myself again?” To add to the awesome feeling of being ghosted, it also knocks your self-esteem and confidence down.
Please read this article if you have been ghosted or have ghosted another. Letting someone down who really likes you is never easy but respect others, and yourself, enough to do the right thing. Be kind and let them down easy.
