The Ghosting Epidemic: Why Courtesy Messages Are a Must
Hey there, fabulous readers!
It’s your one and only Rebecca, the matchmaker extraordinaire from Match Me Canada, here to dish out some dating drama and insights. Buckle up because today we’re talking about the not-so-glamorous world of ghosting. Cue the dramatic music.
So, picture this: I was casually checking in with my brilliant photographer the other day just to see if he’d heard back from a potential client about booking a fantastic photoshoot session. You know, the whole shebang, capturing those picture-perfect moments of happiness in life.
But here’s the kicker, my lovelies. That potential client, after showing interest in joining our fabulous matchmaking services, vanished into thin air. Poof! Gone like a mirage in the desert. I mean, seriously, what happened to common courtesy?
As I relayed this tale of dating woe to my talented photographer, he confessed that he, too, had experienced the sting of ghosting. We delved into a deep conversation about how people can feel let down when they connect with someone on a dating site only to have them disappear faster than a New York minute. We pondered why folks don’t have the decency to send a simple message saying they’re not interested or tied up with other commitments.
And then it hit me, darlings. The same thing happens to me all the time in my line of work.
Picture this: I have around 10 to 15 calls every week with prospective clients. We chat, we laugh, we share intimate details, and I sprinkle them with pearls of dating wisdom. I even present them with tailored programs to help them find their dream match and dive headfirst into a blissful relationship.
I leave those conversations feeling like a wizard, brewing up potions of love and possibilities in my mind. But what happens next sometimes? Crickets. Radio silence. Ghosting at its finest. Not a response or a courtesy message to thank me for my time. It’s frustrating, my friends, beyond words.
You won’t believe the stories I hear from my clients, too. They come to me, pouring out their hearts and sharing their own ghosting experiences. But get this: most of the time, they’ve been ghosted by someone they barely connected with online. No deep soul connection or anything! It’s mind-boggling.
Now, let’s get real for a moment, my fabulous readers. Ghosting isn’t just confined to the world of dating. Oh, no, it’s a phenomenon that infiltrates our daily lives. How many times have we ghosted someone by not responding to their emails? Think about it. We’re all guilty in some way or another.
So, instead of playing the blame game and pointing fingers, let’s take a moment to reflect.
Ghosting is a dance we all do, and if we want to see a change in the dating world, in our lives, then we need to start with ourselves. Be the change, darlings.
Let’s promise to be kinder, communicate openly, and extend that courtesy to one another. We deserve it. We all do.
Until next time, my friends, stay fabulous, stay true to yourself, and remember love, is just around the corner. I’ll be here, matching hearts and breaking down those ghosting walls, one fabulous couple at a time.
