Ghosting: Why people ghost and what it does to the victim

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Ghosting is when someone terminates a relationship by ending all communication abruptly without an explanation.

Margena Carter, from Carter Care Therapeutic Services, said there are many reasons why people ghost from not feeling safe in the relationship to feeling that it’s more convenient than having the breakup conversation and breaking someone’s heart.

“Ghosting can also depend on how the person views the relationships. If they think this is someone that they can remain friends with after they breakup, than they’re more likely to handle the breakup delicately and not ghost. Ultimately, someone who ghost struggles with communicating their disinterest,” said Carter.
