You remember ghosting? Breadcrumbing? Phubbing? Well, get ready for more. As long as there are jerks in the world, there will be new obnoxious dating trends.
When a person you're involved with disappears for months and then suddenly "rises from the dead" with a text, you've been zombied. This differs from breadcrumbing because the zombie-er doesn't reach out at all between their disappearance and "rebirth."
The haunter lacks so much self-awareness. Like, ‘I’m entitled to just come back in your life?'
zombie-ing. It's usually a fair amount of time after they disappeared into thin air, and they often act like nothing happened*-*/-*/— First Step Empire (@FirststepEmpire) September 8, 2017
I think a lot of times … it comes from low self-esteem. Maybe they started to date someone else, and that’s going off the rails, and they need that constant attention. It’s not nice of the haunter to do and it’s certainly not prudent for the hauntee to respond.
Gandhi knows her stuff. The chances of a "zombie" realizing how much you mean to them after ignoring you for several months? Very low. More likely, they want to use you for some positive affirmation.
