Have you been dating someone and while everything seemed great, out of nowhere that person stopped communicating with you? If so, chances are you were experiencing Ghosting.
If Ghosting is not exactly what you experienced, how about dating someone who hasn’t stopped communicating with you, but keeps canceling plans you had together? Even though their reasons for canceling sound legitimate, it seems to happen too often which makes you think something is off. In other cases, the person still hangs out but they are very distant and a bit unclear with you. They seem to not want to have a conversation with you, their answers are short and direct making you feel as if they have no interest in interacting with you. Well… these are forms of what we call Modern Dating Flakiness.
