People Who Have Ghosted Someone, Tell Us Why You Did It

We simply gotta know.

Ghosting is defined as "the act or practice of abruptly cutting off all contact with someone (such as a former romantic partner) usually without explanation by no longer accepting or responding to phone calls, instant messages, etc."

Let's be real — nobody likes getting ghosted. BUT there are always two sides to every story. So, people who have ghosted in romantic relationships — why did you do it?


Maybe you had already tried to tell the other person that you weren't feeling it, and they were just not getting the hint.

Perhaps you just couldn't bring yourself to hurt the other person, and you found it easier to just stop replying rather than face them directly.

Or maybe you found out something wild about your partner, such as that they had been cheating on you the entire time, and so you decided to simply cut off all contact.

If you've ever ghosted someone, we want to hear your story. In the comments below or anonymously, tell us exactly what made you ghost someone and how you feel about it now — do you stand by your decision or do you regret it? Your response could be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post!
