You are making me wonder if I am a serial ghoster. I have not kept the same cell phone number for more than a year. I block folks who get on my nerves on email, Facebook, Twitter, etc. The odds of me going to every family function are slim to none. I do not know if it’s really ghosting or just protecting my surroundings. I like peace. I like drama-free surroundings (minus reality TV). I like debating (the little lawyer has been in me since birth) but duck out when it gets malicious. Could it be that you just want to protect your sanity? People will suck you dry if you let them.
