What is 'ghosting,' and is everybody really doing it?

“Ghosting” is a modern term used to describe a common scenario: Two people have a social connection, often romantic, and one ignores the other person in hopes that they get the hint.

While ignoring someone instead of confronting the issue is a problem as old as humanity, ghosting is a modern buzzword that has launched a thousand think pieces. You can ghost friends, romantic partners or even family members simply by disappearing and not answering their text messages or other attempts to reach out.

On Friday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson,” Doc Thompson, Kal Elsebai and Kris Cruz parsed the “ghosting” term and tried to figure out how many texts you can send before you realize someone ghosted you.

For Kris, the limit didn’t necessarily exist: “I need an answer.”
