I am captivated by the phenomenon of ghosting. Ghosting is indifference. To be ghosted is to have someone, usually an individual you care about, vanish from your life without reason. Ghosting is widespread and far more virulent than most people give it credit for. Ghosting feels like intimate, emotional burglary on a personal level. It is the revocation of a relationship and an absence of communication. The act of ghosting today is ubiquitous; on college campuses, ghosting exists as an inescapable outcome of a number of social interactions between students. Though not new, I believe ghosting has metamorphosed into something akin to a flu epidemic. Human beings, I opine, are regressing in their ability to recognize how essential communication is. Our capacity to speak to other individuals is rapidly depleting, and this is having a deleterious influence on our now tenuous claim to humanity. Communication is transactional, and with each new dating app development the need to sell our thoughts and feelings to potential buyers becomes more crucial. Within this age of expeditious digital dating, there is little room for empathy. Individuals are no longer inundated with the fear of confrontation because one swipe is all it takes to virtually eliminate someone from your life; a written, considerate goodbye is exceptional. The practice of general accountability is rare in today’s society, and providing someone with closure is often little more than an ephemeral thought. The incessant search for someone new and the amount of options on our screens have made us numb to the feelings of the people we so casually leave behind. For some victims of ghosting, the dating world mutates into an uninhabitable, insecure place in which it is painful to allow oneself to be continuously exposed. When you are able to rely on another person’s response, you feel safe. To wake up one day and have your words suspended in limbo, disregarded, is jolting. At any given moment, a dialogue can be taken away and when this happens, people struggle to make sense of a relationship they once thought was secure. We are breeding a culture of social trepidation, and it is possible now to remain unengaged without fully comprehending the implications of our behavior. Individuals who have become inured to indeterminate rejection now approach potential relationships with paralyzing apprehension; they carry with them the scars of unanswered questions. Regardless of why someone is ghosted, it is always hurtful; the situation remains one characterized by the delusion of intimacy. Ghosting makes it difficult for people to maneuver their lives as though they matter to those around them. The inability to answer the questions, “what did I do wrong?” and “why am I not enough?” is excruciating and detrimental to one’s entire sense of self. To possess only the infinitesimal knowledge that something about you is undesirable to someone else is deafening, and it eats away at your understanding of yourself until you feel like a stranger traversing an identity that was never intended for exploration.
