Hello my amazing readers, welcome to my blog.

On today’s post we will be talking about how one should handle being ghosted, and i will be sharing with you all my experience on how someone so dear to me ghosted me.

Ghosting means cutting ties with someone without any explanation or completely letting go of communication with someone or unceremonious exit from ones life. This whole disappearing without a notice from ones life does not only apply to sexual relationships, it is now happening in friendships too.

My experience:

I have been wondering for months now why i would be ghosted by a friend so close to my heart. Angela (not her real name) has been my friend for sometime, we connected immediately we met each other; i always look forward to speaking and chatting with her over the phone as we do not live in the same city. But for 3months now, she left my WhatsApp messages on read and never replied (she’s been active on all social media platforms)

How i handled it:

I have come to realize people get ghosted daily, which means it’s not new and i am not alone in this either. So i decided to match silence with silence and delete anything that reminds me of her.

What are your thoughts on my decisions? If you were me, would you rather match silence with silence or seek for closure for a second time? Have you been ghosted before, how did you handle it? Or, are you also presently dealing with the hurts of a dear friend ghosting on you? Have you ghosted on anyone before (if yes), why?

Thanks for reading

Xoxo 😘

  1. Im sure I have been ghosted and have done the same. Its easier then having to tell someone you don’t want to deal with them. Always take the higher ground. Stay the same. Let her see how you are doing as Im sure shes watching. She may or may not come back and if she does just go from that point. Dont bring up the ghosting.

  2. I think if someone dear to me should suddenly keep mute on my messages, I should make efforts through calls to reach out in order to ensure that all is well with the fellow, not to draw conclusions quickly. My opinion though.

  4. I have a friend who recently did this to me — after throwing a temper tantrum about my slow response to a TEXT. Lol. Suffice it to say, I am ok without her. Her devotion is wobbly, because if you can put a friend down because they are not acting the way you need? You need a dog to train, not a full adult of their own mind and life.

    To me, people who take themselves away from you, you should let go. If they can walk in and out too readily they sincerely don’t have the head or heart to maintain a strong bond. Sorry for your loss, but I think you should focus on unraveling that tie. All the best.

  5. Unfortunately, ghosting is part of our every day life now. “What did I do wrong” constantly running through our minds. I think it’s case by case whether to match silence with silence or reach out again with the hope of closure and to put that question to bed. I share peoples ghosting stories (usually anonymously) on my blog. I am hoping it can help bring people who have experienced this together, with the hope of bringing support and some sort of closure. Stay strong. I hope you do get the answers you deserve some day!

  6. Well the truth is that, the people that we actually think they are acting superior,they might just be struggling with feelings of insecurity and inferiority complex. May be they are quite because they don’t know what to say and how to say.
