Have you ever been talking to someone you really liked and then you never heard from them again? You were ghosted, boo. 

Ghosting: the art of cutting off communication in a relationship without warning or explanation.

Ghosting can be rough, especially when you think the feelings in the relationship are mutual. It can leave you with self-doubt, questioning what you did wrong, and you often never get closure. 

It may not seem like it at the time, but It’s not the end of the world, and you will recover. After all, I’m here to lift your spirits!

Now that you’ve been ghosted, what should you do?

  1. Be transparent with yourself.

Getting closure from them may be tempting, but they won’t answer. The first step in anything is acceptance. You need to accept that you’ve been ghosted and that they aren’t going to answer any of your texts, calls, DMS, or snaps back…so put that phone down.

  1. Don’t let it haunt you.

I’m sure many of you reading this have had an experience where you were ghosted…I know I have plenty of stories myself. Just remember that it’s not you; it’s them. You’ve dodged a bullet if they don’t have the courage to end the relationship in person. Even with the best intentions of not wanting to see someone hurt, ghosting is just immature. 

  1. Rely on your ghoul friends!

When dating fails you, your friends have your back. Who needs those pesky partners anyway! So cuddle up with your besties, watch a movie, and eat lots of treats! 

And finally, remember you are boo-tiful! Don’t let any potential match or partner make you think less of yourself just because they are hiding behind their sheet.
