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."

Don’t be That Couple

Personally, I do not condone remaining friends with an ex but occasionally you have no other choice unless you're willing to risk losing all your friends along with them. Maybe you've been dating since high school, maybe your sorority and his frat mixed in college, or maybe your post-college lives are just so deeply intertwined…
