If you think about it, ghosting has always existed. It’s just that, in the olden days, when someone ghosted you, he just didn’t show up in front the clock tower at the agreed upon time, he stopped calling on you at your home, or he stopped sending you letters. In the past, it really was difficult to determine if you’d actually been ghosted because it was so hard to get ahold of someone in general. Maybe the guy just…had a wheel fall of his carriage or… his letter got lost or… he died… These were once real possibilities! But today, if someone stops communicating with you, there’s just no excuse. There are so many ways to get ahold of someone. It doesn’t matter if the Wifi is down, or a smartphone is stolen. There are still ways. So if someone disappears, you know you’ve been ghosted intentionally. But an impending ghost is harder to spot. Here are signs you’re about to be ghosted.
