The disappearing act
We don’t mean the supernatural ones. If you’ve been left on hold (which is even scarier, tbh), you may want to read on.
Why guys really ghost
so, you’ve finally hit it off with that guy you’ve been crushing on all year. First he started sitting next to you on the bus to school and then he followed you on Instagram. You two even had a snapstreak going for a few weeks and then all of a sudden, nothing. He stopped responding to your messages, he didn’t comment on that hilarious meme you tagged him in and he may have even unfollowed you on IG. This is known as ‘ghosting’, which is when you’re hanging out with someone and then they suddenly disappear off the face of the earth. It’s typically a person’s way of telling you they’re not interested, and yeah, it sucks.
We asked five real guys to ’splain the reasons they decided to become IRL ghosts. Not cool, boys. Not cool at all.
