Generation Ghost: the Facts Behind the Slow Fade We’ve all been there: The guy you’re dating just goes radio silent.
But is ghosting an exclusively male trait? Or are women also haunting their prey? A close male friend and I were chatting recently about a woman he’d met through a dating app. Everything was going great: There were several nights out with sleepovers involved, a meet-the-friends-type barbecue, a day-long outing involving rented bicycles, and regular flirty texting—all of which signified to him that things were on the fast track to ‘relationship’ territory. Then seemingly out of nowhere, things got weird: Dates were postponed indefinitely, texts went unanswered, and eventually, my confused friend waved his white flag. I’m not heartbroken about it or anything,” he said.
She seemed like a normal girl who was into meand then she disappeared? My friend, you just got “ghosted. The relationship ends, though there’s most often no formal explanation from the “ghoster. And one I tend to peg to the opposite sex. As someone who’s been on the unfortunate end of the relationship slow fade, or “ghosting,” more times than I can even count, I’ve become hardened to the notion that, for lots of guys in their twenties and thirties, falling off the face of the earth after wooing a lady for a month or two is pretty much par for the really shitty course.
