Boo! You Have Been Ghosted

Here today, gone tomorrow; employees are leaving jobs without telling anyone

For those over the age of twenty-five, “ghosting” is not likely a phrase you know about. Actually, this might even be the first time you’re hearing it, because you would never, ever ghost anyone. You just weren’t raised that way. But what you need to know is that this term has very little to do with phantoms, spirits, specters, souls or anything paranormal. In fact, it originated in the strangely alive world of online and app-driven dating. 

“Ghosting” occurs when a prospective suitor with whom you have recently conversed, maybe even gone on a few dates with, suddenly stops all communication and, poof, vanishes into thin air — much like a ghost. You know you have been ghosted when all that remains of your potential partner is a faint wisp of chilled air.
