Ghosting -- why the hell do people do it? Why can't people just say "I'm not interested in taking this further." Please sound off.
I think it's stupid to do to another person. I also think those who do it are lazy cowards who simply cannot take responsibility. I know they make excuses for it, but excuses are usually always bullshit. Suck it up and just say you are no longer interested.
I'm sure people have all different reasons.
Afraid of nutsos going ballistic.
Just plain rude.
Not caring enough about anyone to consider their feelings.
People in general are becoming less and less able to converse face-to-face.
They're just cowardly assholes.
Because they don’t feel up to your standards or level, and certainly don’t care to describe or admit that… A backhanded compliment And.. some have personality disorders ..and are actually doing you a favor. Move ahead, with an occasional glance behind for safety..
I just ghosted a guy on a dating site. As soon as he told me what his job was I knew he was another scammer, and I just don't have time for that. Dealers of precious stones and metals do not live in Omaha, NE. The market is not here, and no one in their right mind settles here when the business or family isn't here. Seriously, do scammers all use the same scripts?
I let people ghost me, if that's what they want. I'm not interested in chasing after anyone who doesn't have the decency to be honest with me.
I am accustomed to people treating me like I'm invisible. I've been a social contaminant my whole life. It bothers me as much as rain bothers me: not my favorite thing, but natural, common, and not the end of the world.
I can see how it would bother someone who hasn't been a pariah their whole life...
