Did you know?
Do you believe in love at first sight? Well, statistics say that 71% of online daters do believe in love at first sight. Ironically, according to sources, the no-strings-attached notion of online daters is nothing but a lie. Statistics don’t lie, and it says finding true love is the ultimate goal for most of the online dating apps users. It leaves us the message that romance still exists in the virtual world. In fact, 20% of committed relationships started online. While some of these relationships are lucky enough to blossom into something special, some are not.
Have you ever been ‘ghosted’? Well, this is one of the worst things one could ever experience. Ghosting is a dating trend where a person you have been dating suddenly goes missing in action—he or she just stops calling, without no explanation whatsoever. The worst part is you are left hanging. And then after quite some time of silence, he or she reaches out to you to reconnect; this is now what we call ‘zombie-ing’. It’s as if one raises from the dead and then texts you one day as if nothing wrong really happened. Yet, just when you thought ghosting is the worst, wait until you experience the ‘haunting’ kind of phase. This phase comes right after the being ghosted, except that he or she did not completely disappear from your life. Remember that in ghosting, no text, no call, no anything, but in haunting, you have been partly ghosted but he or she interacts with your social media. Literally and figuratively a ghost from the past that still haunts you. Still, amidst all these, it is always better to believe in love and remember that dating is a not a sprint—it is a marathon.
