Ladies, have you ever ghosted a guy? Before you answer that question, really think about what it means to "ghost" someone. If you've ever stopped responding to a guys text out of nowhere, then yes...you've participated in the lamest trend ever: Ghosting. AND, you suck! Just kidding. That's a little harsh, but ghosting isn't cool and it hurts feelings. Instead of ignoring someone until they finally stop reaching out, why not just straight up tell them you're not interested? 

Here's why you need to start being honest and stop ghosting.

You Wouldn't Want To Be Ghosted

If you've never been ghosted before then you probably don't know how sh*tty it really feels. If you have been ghosted before, then you do know! So, how the hell could you do it someone else? Being ghosted is like being rejected without being told you're being rejected, which is somehow way worse.

He Doesn't Deserve To Be Confused And Waiting

No one deserves to be ghosted. Fact. Could you imagine just sitting in your room, wondering why the person you've been "dating" has randomly stopped responding to your texts? Sounds brutal! Unless he's the worst human being on the planet, don't ghost him.

You'll Probably See Him Again

You never know when you're going to need someone. That's why you should always try to leave things on good terms. In five years, he might be running the world and you'll want to be his friend then! If that doesn't happen, you'll probably run into him somewhere. And you better believe that'll be super awkward if you randomly stopped texting him back after six dates.

It Could Seriously Mess Him Up

Being ghosted can really mess someone up. Not only could he stop trusting other people, but he could feel self-conscious over the fact that you said you cared about him but then stopped talking, without even taking the time to give a reason. Do you want to be responsible for ruining a guy's confidence?

The Truth Will Set You Free

Honesty really is the best policy. Being upfront about your feelings, or rather their lack of will save everyone time! He won't have to wonder why you've peaced out, and you won't have to feel like a complete asshole for not having the lady balls to tell the truth.
