And so, if a connection in the virtual world is of less quality than the real-world one, it’s easier for a person to give up on it — it’s just another virtual profile in the end, out of thousands to dismiss and block. Way easier than doing the same with someone you do know personally, through common friends perhaps, and could randomly meet on the street or in the office.

A few advocate this as a less painful way to end relationships they don’t

how can this even happen in what seems to be some kind of a relationship — friendship or starting partnership

I guess that most of you are familiar with the term — ghosting. And how much it’s coming to picture in this day and age where most of our daily communication moves from face-to-face to digital, or online space, including our personal relationships, and the dating world.

Prior to my experience with ghosting, I’d have thought that most of the ghosting stories happen in the world of online dating, but I’ve learned that ghosting can happen anywhere, anytime.

For those of you still not familiar with this term, it’s basically an act of somebody who’s been a part of your life (either your physical or virtual reality) for some time, disappearing from it without a single word, sign, or a sense of understanding, from one moment to another, becoming a ghost of some sort.
