Ghosting is awful.

It's one of those dating trends that can hit really hard especially if you've fallen for the person that has straight-up erased you from their life.

It was all going so well and poof! it's over.

Eric shared a screenshot on social media of a message exchange and captioned it: "*Goes on first date, scared he’ll ghost but instead gets this text*."
