Yes ladies, the book series that a million people (mainly women) read is full of crap. 50 Shades of Grey had a few glaring flaws, the main one was that Christian is a stalker who had a temper which is not a good combination for a dom or a boyfriend. Really think about it, would you want a guy who has a temper AND had access to floggers, paddles and other impact toys? I know I wouldn't. Those toys can hurt, I know I've been hit by them. An ex had impact toys and we explored that side.
Almost everyone knows what ghosting is. If you don't know what it is, it's where people stop texting or calling. They just fall off the face of the planet with out explanation. It usually happens among people who are dating but it's incredibly annoying and frustrating. It also happens among friends too. I usually move on after a month of someone ghosting. I figure if you don't care to tell me what's going on, then you don't care. What? You got so busy and you couldn't tell me? And I'm supposed to wait for you? Nope, sorry, not buying it. Sometimes people do ghost deep into the relationship and it confuses the other person. I think if you ghost the other person has every right to move on and forget about you, especially if it's been a month or more. Now if you warn the person, "hey I'll be busy for awhile" it's not really ghosting, it's just life. If you do warn them it has to to lead to a conversation about what to do if you go a month or more without communication.
