The new dating story
Dating trends can be messy and complicated, not to mention hurtful.
Ghosting has been a part of the modern dating lexicon for years. To define this horrifying phenomenon, haunting is when someone from your romantic past lingers in your digital present by occasionally watching your Instagram or Snapchat story, or sporadically liking your posts.I'm 100 percent not over it, and this allows me a little imaginative space to think that he's maybe a teensy bit not over it too." You get used to anything, even a haunting, if it lingers long enough.Maybe that's the goal of all ghosts — they just want to stay close enough to know we're not moving on without them, and close enough to ensure we'll really miss them when they finally leave.Just like you'd look insane if you stood outside your house yelling at invisible ghosts to leave it alone, you'd look equally insane if you called a relationship ghost out for simply viewing your social stories.Acknowledging you're being haunted only validates the ghost and makes it stronger.
