This girl ghosted her boyfriend of FIVE YEARS and now I feel like I just got ghosted too
‘I disappeared from his life’
A contender for the single most brutal ghosting emerged yesterday – a woman who left her boyfriend of five years after catching him in bed with his ex.
She walked out on him, deactivated her Facebook, changed her number, then ended her lease and moved to a new city. She never spoke to him again.
The story was posted on Reddit yesterday and has been upvoted over 60,000 times.
The anonymous account reads:
"I came over to his house one morning to surprise him with breakfast and a video game he wanted, only to find him naked, asleep, and with his ex curled up in his arms.
"He didn’t hear me come in, so I closed his bedroom door, and left his breakfast and game on the kitchen counter along with my key to his house.
"I went to my car, deactivated my Facebook, and blocked him on all other forms of social media. I then called my phone provider to change my number before driving off.
"I texted family members and close friends that we were no longer together and to block him on social media, as well. I didn’t tell them why.
"I was in a position to end the lease at my apartment early, and I started a new job in a different city later that week.
"I completely removed myself from him and didn’t offer a shred of explanation or opportunity for dialogue. I disappeared from his life after his betrayal and I think it’ll not only help me to focus on myself without his presence, but I think completely shutting myself off from him will hurt worse than anything when he thinks on how good he had it with me these last five years."
When asked how she was able to move out of there so calmly, she adds:
"Admittedly, I was in shock after closing his bedroom door, but by the time I got to my car, the waterworks hit hard. I had a bit of a cry in his driveway, then realized I didn’t want to spend the next however long crying over someone who would blatantly hurt me. So I started covering my bases to ensure that I wouldn’t let him affect me like that ever again."

It’s too easy

I'm a love addict. I spend hours scrolling through the New York Time's Modern Love section, or The Cut's Sex Diaries. I go on about a date a week and spend the rest of my time watching other people's love stories unfold on Netflix. And when I talk about my future with my friends, it…
For the love of all things good, never swipe right on a guy who only has group pics
Well, unless you want to get murdered

Just when I thought I'd attempted every desperate tactic on the market to find "love", I unknowingly realized that I've been swiping right on profiles in which I have no idea who the actual person is because they've emptied every one of their group photos into their Tinder profile. There's a clear method to this…

If he’s posting about her online… we have news for you

If there's one thing all men are great at, it's sending mixed-signals. Dudes are pretty useless when they're actually talking to you one-on-one. But after a break-up, when communication is muddy and you're trying to figure out what he's thinking from stalking his Facebook pictures and analyzing his tweets, it can be especially tough to…
