15 People Who Got Ghosted Way Harder Than You

 

Halloween is coming, but unfortunately, not all ghosts are Casper-friendly material. 

1. “My ex pretended to have a brain tumor.”

“My ex pretended to have a brain tumor so he could break up with me. He said he couldn’t drink beer anymore, go out, or keep up with my hippie lifestyle. On a related note: He’s out drinking right now.” —Karla Almeida

2. “In the middle of dinner, he said he had to go to the pharmacy really quick and never came back.”

“One time, I went out to dinner with a guy who I was just getting to know. We had just ordered and were chatting, until he said that he had to go to the pharmacy really quick. It was right next to the restaurant, and he said he’d forget to go if he waited until later. I said okay. He left. And he never came back. I replayed that night over and over in my head for months, thinking about what I had said, done, etc. About six months later, I found out that he was married to a woman and that his wife had been following him, and that when he went on dates, she ended up tracking him down. And there I was thinking he left because of all the food I’d ordered.” —Bruno Aguiar

3. “The girl never showed up because she’d gone to another city — to meet up with someone else.”

“I met a girl on Tinder, and we agreed to meet up on a Wednesday. She was going to message me about where to meet up around 4. I got ready, but she never sent the message. At 8:30, she finally got in touch, saying that she had gone to a nearby city with friends to see someone else.” —Ysis Sobreira

4. “He said he wouldn’t be able to come because he was at a workers rights protest.”

“I guess it was fine, but I’d already shaved my legs.” —Camila Castro

5. “His status said he was online, but he never responded until Monday, saying that I was the ‘right person at the wrong time.'”

“I was going out with a guy who lived in a nearby city, and we’d always made the effort to try to see each other when we could. It had been a few weeks since we’d seen each other. I had a copy of Game of Thrones that I’d never read, so I sold it for cash to buy a bus ticket, because I was sure we were going to hang out on Friday. He stopped responding Thursday night, and I sent him a ton of desperate messages. His status said he was online, but he never responded until Monday, saying that I was the ‘right person at the wrong time.'” —Jess Caroline

6. “This guy said he was going to go to the bathroom and never came back, but I found him in the same bar hitting on other girls.”

“I was talking to this guy on Tinder and found out that he was at a bar super close to me. I suggested that we meet up, and he showed up, but then said he had to go to the bathroom. He never came back. I stayed at the bar with a friend and later noticed he was STILL AT THE BAR. He had just left me hanging to go bark up other trees.” —Marina Ferreira Megale

7. “He was an engineer and said that he was going to be running late because a wall caved in on one of his jobs.”

“I had been talking to this engineer, who ended up asking me out. On the day of our date, he sent me a message wishing me a good day and confirming our plans, and then all day we talked. Three hours before our date, he said that a wall had caved in on one of his job sites, and he was going to be late. I said it was fine, he probably should get that wall fixed first, you know? He never ended up showing up or responding. I spent four days thinking that he’d died at the job site — but one day I did catch him checking out my stories. Nowadays, I use the ol’ ‘a wall caved in’ excuse myself when I have to bail on plans.” —Raísa Sutecas Pin

8. “He said he wasn’t going to come because he wasn’t comfortable around strangers. Plot twist: He was an Uber driver.”

“I met this guy on Tinder, and we planned to meet up. I spent two hours waiting for him and nothing! Then he gave this explanation.” — Bia Fuentes

9. “She said she had to leave and go pay some bills.”

“My ex told me that she was going to go pay some bills, so I imagined she’d be back home in a few hours. Six hours later, I was waiting by the phone, worried sick. Since she wasn’t responding, I decided I’d check in with her sister, who said she’d seen her downtown with an ex. When she finally came home, she passed right out. Her phone vibrated, and I went to check on it. That’s when I saw a message from her ex saying “I love you too.” —Anonymous

10. “This one guy stopped talking to me because I’d given him a movie spoiler.”

“I was talking with a guy on Tinder. We started talking about the movie Logan, which had just come out. I mentioned being disappointed that he hadn’t seen it yet, and he got all mad like I’d just leaked a spoiler. So he ghosted me.” —Raquel Vedana

11. “He said that he’d stopped to help a guy who got sick on the bus.”

“I was planning on going out with this guy who sounded like a great person. We planned to meet at a plaza downtown. I waited for an hour, and he never showed. I called, I send him messages, the works, and got nothing from him. It was so shitty. When I got home, he said that he’d stopped to help a guy who got sick on the bus. Little did he know, he’d forgotten to untag himself from a photo taken at a bar with him surrounded by women, curiously around the same time as his Good Samaritan moment.” —Paula Sthéfany Romano

12. “I waited for three hours at the city bus station for him.”

“One time, I went to see a crush who lived in another state. I wanted to spend some time in his city with him, so we made plans about where to meet. We talked up until the day before we were supposed to meet. That day, I waited for three hours at the city bus station for him. He never showed. When I returned home, I found out that he was already in a relationship.” —Lya Cavalcant

13. “He said he couldn’t go out with me because it was his mom’s birthday.”

“I was making plans with a guy for Friday night, and he said he couldn’t go out with me because it was his mom’s birthday. I said it was fine and that I understood, so I just ended up going out with some girlfriends. Later that night, another friend invited me to a house party. On the way there, I mentioned that I didn’t get to see my guy today because of his mom. My friend told me he was literally at this house party — with another girl. I couldn’t stand to go and see it for myself.” —Amanda Kauane

14. “She said that she would just wait until after her parents fell asleep, so I waited up to hear from her.”

“One of my exes wanted to celebrate her birthday with a night out at the club. On the day of, she said that her parents, who were very strict, weren’t letting her go, even though everything was organized — cake and all. She said that she would just wait until they fell asleep, so I waited up to hear from her. She never got in touch, it got late, and I went to bed. The next day, I saw a bunch of photos of her out at the club. I never followed up or reached out to her. I just let it die, and that’s how it ended.” —Avellar Paz

15. “His grandpa let me in, and we just waited together. Later on, this guy called me crying and freaking out, saying he had to cancel because HIS GRANDPA HAD DIED.”

“I spent a while talking to a guy. We eventually planned on meeting up at his place. I went there, and his grandpa let me in. The grandpa was super nice and we just waited together. Later on, this guy called me crying and freaking out, saying he had to cancel because HIS GRANDPA HAD DIED. His grandpa was listening in on the conversation and asked me what was going on, and I told him: ‘He said you just died.’ The poor man didn’t understand me at first, but then afterwards apologized on behalf of his grandson. Later that day, the actual guy messaged me asking for forgiveness. I read them, but I never responded and I blocked him.” —Iaia Correia

 

One reply on “15 People Who Got Ghosted Way Harder Than You”

I ghosted a girl on college after one year. I moved to a different city and got another GF. After 6 months she says we should have a “serious talk” after finals. I never called back, never broke up, but I’m married now so presumably she isn’t waiting.
