The inquisitive one noticed someone cute on the dating site. They went on not one, but two dates!
On the first date, they met at a Greek restaurant. They had so much fun talking at the restaurant that they decided to go out for coffee afterward. A while later, they hugged good night and made jokes as they waved goodbye!
On the second date, they met at an art museum. They had so much fun looking at paintings that they decided to get dinner at a quaint little restaurant. They had so much fun talking at the restaurant that they decided to browse through a bookstore. They had so much fun looking at books that they decided to get tea and pastries at a café. A while later, they kissed good night, waved goodbye, and texted each other jokes!
Two days later, the inquisitive one sent two cheerful texts to the date!
A few hours after that, the date touched the icon of the texting app to send a message. But suddenly, just at that moment, the date’s soul flew out of the date’s body!
The date’s soul could no longer manipulate the date’s body!
The date was now, completely irrevocably, a phantom!
And for many months afterward, the date’s poor soul flitted about ancient buildings and graveyards, ruminating in agony over what had happened so suddenly and inexplicably.
This is the terrifying modern epidemic known as ghosting. I hope it never happens to you!
