Pretending busy dating
He always answered so matter-of-fact-ly, that I actually mentioned to Mandy that I was couldn’t get a feel for his sense of humor.
I put together a weekly column called "Boom, Ghosted." People from all over send me stories about the times they were ghosted by people they really thought they could trust. All the while, something deep down inside of you wonders what makes this time different from all the other times he was "busy."He was busy then, too, but he still managed to make some time for you. On the other hand, I've also sent the "I'm busy" text.

I had taken a day off in order to go camping with friends for my birthday.
But for the most part, a lot of people's stories follow a similar pattern. If I wasn't into the person anymore, pretending to be busy made my lack of communication easier to explain without getting too involved in the conversation. It's more about that gut feeling you have at the very beginning — you know, the one you try to dismiss because you think you're just being paranoid.
I feel like it's my personal duty to share with you this pattern. It's the one your friends try to silence because you're just "overthinking" things.
