Long story, I'll make it short....I was ghosted after knowing someone for 2 years. One day he said he was going away for the weekend. He never signed on again. I knew his alt. and his alt did not sign in either. I kept a look out for him, and googled his name every month or so to see if he died or what happened. I e-mailed a few time, no response. A while goes by, and I stop looking. About a year later I see his avatar appear in one his/our old haunts and is now female with a totally different profile. They state they bought the account or switched accounts. They were very vague. Soon afterwards a friend of mine googled his name and the person who disappeared posted a product review on a popular website.. So now I know hey were alive, and just ghosted ALL his friends (it is not a common name)
Fast forward years later...an acquaintance of mine and I figure out, after I was ghosted and stopped looking for him, his alt became active and dated her for a long time!.
Not too long before this conversation, my acquaintance said she got a message saying he (as the alt) passed away. Well, I knew his RL name...so I decided to just have a look on a social media site....and he was alive and going on vacation!
With me, I knew his age where he lived, e-mail, real name etc. With her he said he was 20 years younger, and lied about many things except his occupation, first name and birthdate.
All he had to say was..."bye it was nice knowing ya..." Cowards!
