So where am I now? Back to the dating apps. I have re-downloaded Tinder and Bumble. I now avoid yuppie CPA’s with no sense of humor. And I’m working through my issues as best as I can (a.k.a. consuming lots of Trader Joes wine and desperately perusing self-help blogs!).
You’re totally entitled not to want to see a tinder date again, but you don’t have to be a dick about it. When we ghost, we not only devalue the emotions, time, and existence of others, but we stunt the growth of our own emotional capacity and our ability to handle interpersonal relationships.
