I used to complain a lot about how guys were constantly ghosting me and my friends. I didn’t understand how after an amazing night, someone could just never text me back.
But then I moved to New York. Dating suddenly seemed like such a complete waste of time and energy. I found myself yawning on nights out, making excuses to leave after just one drink, and then not replying when a guy asked to see me again. One potential prospect even sent me a ghost emoji. I still didn’t answer. Instead of worrying about how single I was becoming, I finally took pride in it. What free time I did have had become too precious to spend it with these men I took little to no interest in.
So to avoid getting roped into seeing someone I barely like, I’ve come up with a list of non negotiable dating dealbreakers. If a guy commits one or more of the following, he will be ghosted immediately, no questions asked. Boys, you’ve been warned.
