Ghosting has become such a common issue across marriage apps, dating apps, social media platforms, and texting. It has become so prevalent that sociologists have deemed it to be a culture of its own: “Ghosting Culture” People ghost to get out of talking to someone without the feeling of awkwardness. However, it makes the person on the receiving feel ignored, dismissed, and self conscious.
“Our research supports the idea that ghosting can have negative consequences for mental health. Short term, many of those ghosted felt overwhelming rejection and confusion. They reported feelings of low self-worth and self-esteem. Part of the problem is the lack of clarity — not knowing why communication abruptly stopped. Sometimes, an element of paranoia ensues as the ghostee tries to make sense of the situation.”(Dubar, 2022)
In Islam, the pressures of finding your Soulmate, your spouse, your true partner are already intense. We get pressure from our grands, aunties, uncles, mamas and Babas. It’s super hard having to explain to them that finding genuine people is not as easy as it used to be. The factor of potential “ghosting” makes it worse. Ghosting demonstrates a communication disconnect which prohibits people from forming true bonds that can be made over time. So the question is: “How to avoid Ghosting?”
