No one wants to be ignored, but with all the crap and everything else going on in other people's lives, we need to remember not to take ghosting personally. 24/7 - People in San Francisco love to talk about how busy they are and how dating apps make finding that special someone so much easier.
You never know what the other person is going through. While I agree to certain extent, I've also noticed that people in San Francisco have become way too reliant on dating apps.
You Ghost Me, I Ghost You - Recently, a girlfriend of mine came to me for advice on why her recent online match started "ghosting" her.For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term "ghosting," urban dictionary defines it as: "The act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone the subject is dating, but no longer wishes to date.Picnic in Golden Gate Park, surrounded by its million trees.Visit the beautiful Victorian greenhouse, the Conservatory of Flowers, and the carousel on the park’s eastern edge.This is done in hopes that the ghostee will just "get the hint" and leave the subject alone, as opposed to the subject simply telling them he/she is no longer interested." Unfortunately, ghosting has become a common dating practice and tends to happen more often than not.
I explained to my friend that she should not be offended by the fact that she had been ghosted. "I've even been ghosted," I mentioned reassuringly. I hate to admit it, but I was recently called out by someone for ghosting.She mentioned that it all depends on age, noting that the older a man is, the more serious he will want to be.I let her know that this isn't always the case (based on experience). I know a handful of women who have already started freezing their eggs to ensure that they can still have children in their forties, since they are so sure they won't settle down until they are much older. I Live Here, But Only Sometimes - One of the biggest problems about dating in The Bay Area is that no one is actually ever here.Sure, people "live" here, but the men and women of SF always seem to be traveling.For instance, you can go on two great dates with someone and then the next day you will find out that they have to travel for the next month.Beat the crowds and meet up at Fisherman’s Wharf in time for a breakfast date.
