What is soft ghosting and how to deal with it?
Essentially, soft ghosting is a softer version of ghosting. People who feel guilty about completely cutting off, often use this technique.
So this mean they might not ask you to hang out with them or just respond with emojis to show they haven’t shunned you.
In simpler words, soft ghosting is where conversation gradually drops down and suddenly the person who used to be loud on your social media drops down to just viewing and liking your posts.
Soft ghosting can be just as painful as full ghosting. So how do you deal with being soft ghosted?
1. Know when to draw the line
If a message doesn’t require a response, don’t respond. You deserve a lot more than continuing a conversation in the face of just likes and emojis as responses.
2. Actions speak louder
Lazy responses aren’t signs of someone who cares. If someone wants to show that they like you, they will have to make an effort to communicate. Don’t let a situationship keep you hooked when there are other options available.
3. Don’t assume things
The fact that we are in a generation where feelings and emotions are felt temporarily says enough about how you must never assume what the other person thinks about you. But that also doesn’t mean you assume that the other person is ignoring you, they might have genuinely missed your message or call. Just don’t assume.
4. Don’t jump to conclusions
Jumping to conclusions if you’re being soft ghosted is a wrong thing to do. Give them the benefit of doubt before you conclude what a particular situation means.
5. Know when to take a hint
Sometimes people don’t want to tell you that they are not interested in you. If you haven’t heard back from someone in a while, don’t immediately assume it’s about you. But if you send them a message and they say something vague, then take note that they don’t want to invest in you anymore.
6. Knowing is enough
People can be hard on you for no apparent reason, so you need to know what to do to protect your own self and your feelings. Sometimes, you just have to come to your own conclusion that this isn’t for you. Don’t keep waiting there with the hope that the other person will come around. Sometimes, your gut feeling is enough for you to understand that you’re being soft ghosted, so move on.
