The new dating story
Sarah doesn't know why her ghost still keeps up with her life all these months later, but she'd never consider asking him why he keeps watching her very public Snapchat story.
Trying to confront and banish your ghost can only backfire.
If communication is cut off everywhere else, why swirl around in your digital sphere?
Kate, 24, said she was surprised to find Becca* still watched her Snapchat and Instagram stories for weeks after Kate ghosted her.
"But I think that's entirely a product of my own mind.
His unrelenting social media presence has just made it hard to forget about him." The most fucked-up thing about haunting is that only the ghosts get to communicate — the living can't reach the dead in life or in dating.
A haunt is a ghost from a previous relationship (or fling) that somehow got stuck in your online realm.
Thoroughly spooked, I asked my friend, "What does he want, what does this mean!?? The only clear thing was that I was being haunted by a dude whose number I'd never even saved to my phone.The two don't talk anymore — she wanted a bit of space and time to get over him before trying to reignite a conversation.And yet she knows he still exists, somewhere out there in the world, because he's constantly watching her Snap story.It's simultaneously painful and comforting for Sarah to see his username on the list of story viewers."Knowing he always watches makes it seem like it would be less weird for me to [text him]," Sarah said.
They'd been out twice, there wasn't a ~love connection~, and Kate ended it by neglecting to reply to a vague text from Becca.
