1/2/19 Online Dating Terminology: Ghosting

 

Suppose that, in any given relationship, your partner seems to have suddenly disappeared, maybe without any warning at all. No calls, no text messages, no connection made on social media, no responses to any of your messages. Your partner has simply ended the relationship without bothering to explain or even let you know. You’ve been ghosted.
Ghosting refers to the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication.
According to some experts, ghosting is by no means limited to long-term romantic relationships. Informal dating relationships, friendships, or even work relationships may end with a form of ghosting.

Example:
I haven’t seen Tom in 3 months. I think he may be ghosting me.
