“I would 1,000 percent rather be ghosted than have all the reasons why you don’t like me” – The toxic dating behavior that suddenly isn’t

A ghost came back to haunt me this summer. I had a first date with a guy. We agreed that things had gone well and made plans to meet up again when I got back from vacation. We continued to text while I was away; The conversation was good, definitely better than your average “Hey, what are you doing?” However, a week into the holidays, I replied to one of his WhatsApps and suddenly…nothing. This wasn’t the first time he’d taken a few days to reply, so I shrugged. Maybe he was busy. But a few days turned into seven, at that point I wrote him off, my logic being that he wasn’t interested anymore. I had been officially ghosted.

The term “ghosting” has been part of online dating lingo for nearly a decade. Simply put, it means ending contact with someone without warning: you stop replying to their messages, unfollow them on social media, stop answering their calls, and eventually disappear from their life altogether. In the past, this has been labeled toxic behavior by dating experts — without exception. Studies suggest that ghosting can even cause psychological harm to someone. But now, it seems, many people in the dating scene are experiencing a change of heart. Instead, ghosting may be considered acceptable. Even encouraged.
