We can all agree that being ghosted by a partner is brutal. There’s a way to let someone down easy by using an “anti-ghosting” strategy. The tactic is blowing up on TikTok and there are some great examples of anti-ghosting texts you can use.
There are some exceptions to sending the text. If someone made you uncomfortable or maybe dangerous to talk with… ghost them, by all means. Otherwise, try this if you aren’t feeling it with your date:
- “I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you, but I’m not feeling it romantically. We’re both looking for the real thing and I don’t want to waste your time or mine.”
- “Honestly, I don’t feel a connection between us. I think it’s better if we see other people. Best of luck.”
Just remember to be honest. Think about karma, respect, and decency when you text them and remember to thank them for their time.
