Everyone knows about “ghosting” now . . . that’s where you suddenly stop responding to a person’s texts and vanish completely.
But here’s a new twist . . . and it might even be WORSE psychological torture to inflict on someone you’re dating.
“Soft ghosting” is when you respond to someone’s texts just by “liking” the message. You don’t respond, you just give the text a thumbs up or a “haha” or a heart. That means you got in the last word . . . without saying anything.
So now the other person has to decide whether to talk next, or if it’s still your turn.
And eventually, if your soft ghosting plan works like you want it to, they just give up, the conversation ends, and you two never speak again.
