Boom, Ghosted is a weekly column of ghosting horror stories. Each week, we share a story from a reader about a time they were ghosted, complete with a screenshot of the last text(s) the reader sent to the ghoster before they disappeared forever. We've heard from people who've been ghosted on New Year's Eve after a romantic dinner, by a boyfriend of five years during a vacation, by someone who lied about being on the run from the cops, and tons, tons more!

If you'd like to be featured in Boom, Ghosted, please submit a screenshot of the last text you ever sent to your ghoster here or email it to, along with the story of your relationship and what happened before they ghosted.
