Have you ever ghosted someone?

I only did one time, years ago in my early 20's. It was an old friend of mine, he was a pretty big alcoholic and used to always want to go out to bars and get hammered, and wanted me to go with him all the time to be his "wingman". He was basically trying to meet random girls to sleep with, and prioritized only on that. He was in a long term relationship with another a woman, but he kept cracking jokes about how he didn't care about her and how he was probably going to end up leaving her (he had some childhood issues, his mother was apparently also a big alcoholic). He would constantly try to pick up girls the drunker he got, and if he didn't succeed he would somehow try to blame it on me, and would try to use me as the butt of jokes in attempts to impress these girls, which was just demoralizing. I eventually just stopped taking his calls about going out to drink, and stopped talking to him completely. I couldn't handle that much negativity and destructive behavior anymore, and he didn't seem capable of changing.

He sounds like an ass.

I had a childhood friend I grew up with who started going out of control. Suicidal mess, but used to sneak out of his house, do drugs and drink a lot by time he was fifteen. Whenever I would try to stop being friends they would threaten to kill themselves.
He did go to the hospital once. Someone who threatens to kill themselves if you leave them doesnt even deserve the option to beg because they're just selfish lol.
I slowly distanced myself and stopped talking to them all together when I turned 17.

Yet like 2 years later they broke into my account on insta, found all my posts on sexual abuse and sent that all to my mother probably as a way to get back at me lol. Jokes on them cause my mother already knew. But Ive felt violated after having my privacy breached like that.

I ghosted a lot of people over the years. Not all of them were bad people.
Toxic people are not healthy to be around, you didn't do anything wrong.

I ghosted someone due to the fact they lied and treated me like shit.
Yes and I still feel awful about it. Sometimes you have to cut people out for your own well being, but I should have at least told them before doing so. Live and learn.

Yuppers. They were constantly negative, and they said shit about someone who is a very good friend.

[@674752,ZenPearl] Sometimes you just gotta cut the negativity out.
ZenPearl · F
[@1135204,tk9999] yes, because it's not worth having around

I don’t think I have, but you probably did the right thing 😑
tk9999 · 41-45, M
[@1042,Fairydust] Yeah you gotta look out for yourself sometimes.
Fairydust · F
[@1135204,tk9999] 💯 you can’t let others belittle you, so they feel good. 😏
tk9999 · 41-45, M
[@1042,Fairydust] Not at all. Some people just have no good intentions at heart, even if it’s done for reasons they don’t understand or that aren’t entirely their fault. Doesn’t mean you gotta take it.
