Essence Live decided to make a video asking men and women about their experiences with ghosting — and the responses were both honest and hilarious.
"One of the best ways to ghost somebody is, when they call you, you give a one-word answer: 'Would you like to go out later?' 'Maybe.'"
"I see you liking pictures on Instagram. I see you liking things on Facebook. So I know that you're not busy."
But how can you avoid being ghosted?
"You've got to pre-empt the ghostness. So before you ghost me, if I see a shadow of a ghost, I ghost you."
Ghosting is a pretty heartless way to end a relationship and cut all ties with someone, but it's becoming more and more popular because of modern dating and social media apps. A survey conducted by YouGov/Huffington Post shows that out of 1,000 American adults interviewed between Oct. 23 and Oct. 26, 2014, just over 10 per cent have ghosted someone to break up with them — could Canada's statistics be far behind?
