What Is "Trickle Ghosting?"

There is a new dating term you might want to get familiar with. It's called "trickle ghosting." A Reddit-user posted about how her partner of four years slowed down communication with her to a trickle.

Toward the end, they only talked or texted once every few days.

Whereas with regular ghosting, someone just disappears on you, trickle ghosting is a cycling down of your relationship until there is nothing.

Add this to your vocabulary and use it when you need it.
