I’m pretty sure if you’re single rn and looking for love (or lust) you’re on Tinder (…or Bumble or Happn which, let’s be real, are to Tinder as Kourtney and Khloe are to Kim), and I’m pretty sure that if you aren’t you will have been at some point or’ll know someone who is, right? Well as you’ll well know, with online dating comes ghosting. It’s just too easy. If a guy’s done with you, they can just play dead, and you can take the hint and dig ‘em a little hole in your WhatsApp graveyard never to be seen again like the good little girl you are… or can you?
Nah. Every now and again an old flame’ll think it’s a good idea to rise from the dead and slide back into your DMs but NEWSFLASH: it’s never a good idea! This, in the dating world, is what you call zombieing, and it makes ghosting look like child’s play.
So why do people do it?
I’d love to tell you it’s because they’ve taken the time to get their shit together and have come to realise you’re an absolute hun, but in my experience it’s more often than not:
- because they’d benched you and need you now one of their ‘better’ players is off the pitch,
- because they need their ego (and most probably their dick) stroked, or
- because there was ‘noone new around them’ so they’re having to have a mooch through their old matches.
Let’s not be necrophiliacs here. The only walking dead we should be concerning ourselves with is the one on Fox UK, so can we please just hack the heads off these bastards before they eat our brains for breakfast? Thank YOU.
