WHY GHOSTING IS FUCKING RUDE

Need to get some emotion out.
  1. Now, listen. If you went on one or two dates and are just not feeling it, okay, ghosting isn't that big of a deal. You don't really owe much to the other person.
  2. But if you've slept together...
  3. MULTIPLE times...
  4. And it's been like a month (or more) of seeing each other...
    (Even casually...)
  5. Then you're a fucking asshole.
  6. If you're busy or just need time to yourself, you tell the person.
  7. If you're dating someone else, you tell the person.
  8. If it's just not the right time, you tell the person.
  9. If you're not in a good mental headspace, you tell the person.
  10. If the person did/said something that upset you and you don't want to hang out anymore, you tell the person.
  11. If you're not over your ex, you tell the person.
    I fall hard for people. I've had to admit this to new partners many, many times. (And this convo, btw, was with someone I hung out with TWICE.)
  12. If you're just not interested anymore, you tell the person.
  13. If you realize you're looking for something different than what you think the other person is looking for, you tell the person.
  14. It takes two seconds to send a text. Yeah, you may be scared of hurting someone, but you know what hurts SO MUCH more? Being ghosted on.
  15. Because for loyal people like me, we need permission to move on.
  16. And you not taking a moment out of your day to provide closure to another person is both lazy and disrespectful.
  17. If you ghost on someone, you are a coward.
  18. And I don't date cowards.
  19. Bye.
