The Latest Social Media Trend for Millennials Is Bizzare and Raises Some Questions
According to Elite Daily, there is a bizarre new social media trend related to dating.
A guy dates a girl, drops off the face of the Earth or "ghosts" her. They then, out of nowhere, "like" all of the young lady's social media posts. As far as I can tell, they don't have a name for it yet but sit tight, they will.
Call me old fashioned, but when I was a young man, if I wanted a girl, I wanted her, and she could tell. When I was no longer interested in the girl, they could tell. Then, sometimes, as will happen in nature, many years later, you may rekindle something with someone you already dated. This, however, is baffling.
What is the end game? Are you trying to say that while it did not work out, you, of course, want to remain friends? Are you trying to hurt their feelings? Is it a control thing?
My first reaction was they were simply trying to send a message that they wanted to remain friends, then I read more of the article. Girl after girl, lady after lady, said the same thing. They never liked my social media posts when we were dating, and since they "ghosted" me, it's like they are going out of their way to like all my posts.
Well let me tell you what -- I don't get it. These kids have way too much time on their hands. It seems like a waste. In my day, you broke up and soon after, started giving the "business" to someone else.
Unless you were the one who was broken up with. In that case, you would obsess over them for a month, then, soon after, start giving someone else your "business." It's goofy times, we are living in.
P.S. Since they don't have a name for it yet, I will name it. I will call this, "Ghostface Killah." You ghost, then like everything on their Facebook, and it kills them inside.
