Trade Ghost Stories
Melissa Hobley, global chief marketing officer at OkCupid, reports that mentions of ghosting on OkCupid increased 21 percent since the beginning of 2019 and 38 percent in the past year. "Ghosting is nothing new, we just actually have a name for it now," she told POPSUGAR. With numbers like these, we know it happens to plenty of us, and we should take comfort in the fact that we're not alone. Asking a friend or your favorite coworker if they've ever been ghosted and swapping stories can be therapeutic and help you move on. It can diffuse your fears that it's a you-only problem.
