WHY DO PEOPLE GHOST? It really sucks. Sure, one date and not talking after isn’t a big deal, but if you’ve gone on multiple dates, it’s just super uncool to disappear with no explanation.

And then there are the people that ghost after dating for a long ass time. Like, ghosting after months, even YEARS of dating. YUP, THAT’S A THING. Straight up, if you disappear on someone that you’ve devoted so much time to and made a commitment to, then you are a serious POS.

I think it’s safe to say most millennials have been ghosted at some point. But, if you’ve been ghosted after dating someone for two months plus, then I think you have reasonable cause to hire a hitman. Too much? Say that to my ex. OH WAIT YOU CAN’T, CAUSE HE DEAD.

These 17 people got ghosted after dating someone for months/years:


One of my best friends dated a guy for two years and was planning on moving to Texas with him. He took her ring shopping and everything. He moved down there, and then just disappeared.


My girlfriend had this boyfriend that she dated for over a year. He moved across the country, and within 6 months she was ready to follow him. Like she quit her job and had a moving date. About two weeks before she was supposed to move he stopped answering her phone calls. YUP.


I ghosted someone after 2 months because they wanted constant texting and then one weekend kept sending “entertain me” when they went out with friends. Not worth my time / effort / stress to have a proper conversation. If you want to get treated like an adult, don’t treat your relationship like it’s set in a middle school hallway.


Two years. I came home from work and he was gone… along with all the furniture. And I mean ALL the furniture – f*cker even took all the food out of the fridge and dumped it in a pile on the kitchen floor.
