My friend, who lived strictly by the rule that you should not double text for fear of looking too “thirsty,” as the kids call it, was aghast. My now-boyfriend has been teased for “texting like a girl,” but it was immediately one of my favorite things about him.

It’s probably a good time to go ahead and delete or unfollow the ghost.
So you’re not the type to rip off the band-aid and rule his existence out altogether? Whether or not he wanted a relationship, someone who ghosts is likely to do the same to people in his life who supposedly matter to him.
It’s no wonder, then, that text message miscommunications were a daily source of stress and anxiety.
It was yet another box to check as we sought a significant other: textual chemistry.
