Are you familiar with the term ghosting? Ghosting is a term that was originally associated with dating. The action of ghosting was when someone whom you went out on a date with never returned any sort of communication with you afterwards; whether it be an email, phone call or even a text. They just disappeared like a ghost. This term and behavior has now transcended into friendships, family and even the work place.  To explain why ghosting has become the norm is Licensed Professional Counselor and Executive Coach Bruce Cameron.
