People get ghosted for all kinds of reasons. People ghost for all kinds of reasons, too – obviously. It never feels good when someone you've been talking to, dating, or seriously involved with just ups and disappears, but the person who ghosted you definitely had a reason for doing it. Some of those reasons are better, or at least more understandable, than others. Some of them even have merit. That's not true of all of them, of course – some of the reasons you're getting ghosted are rude at best and cowardly at worst. These are some of the excuses both men and women have gone ghost on someone. Odds are, however, you've experienced at least one of these, whether you're the ghost or the ghosted.
