You'll have what you think is an above-average first date, full of great conversation (aka very minimal phone-checking) and a lengthy makeout session in a conveniently located park. He'll already suggest a venue for date two, leaving out the fact that he won't be free any of the five nights you are, and won't ever propose a time that works for him. Aries's adventurousness is what won you over in the first place; however that spontaneity = only responding when he feels like it. "Gotta check my sched" are the words that will haunt you for years to come.Taurus: The Semi-Secret Admirer
Somewhere along your doomed dating timeline, he added you on various social media platforms, which are now your only forms of contact. He won't answer a text, but he's always down to fave a tweet, peppering your Newsfeed with little reminders that you're hilarious and engaging, but just not dateable for some reason. Taurus loves reliability in his life, and he will reliably make you feel like garbage by reminding you he's still around, just not interested.Gemini: The Slightly-More-Friendly Ghost
Is it truly ghosting if he just slowly bores you to death with the most generic responses (after you've had some really deep talks and you know he's more interesting than this)? Because Gemini worries about coming off as a jerk, his form of ghosting is a polite slow fade, where he'll just say "yeah" a lot and cease to ask you any questions, miraculously making you the ghoster in the end as you save yourself from the monotony of endless "lols."Cancer: The Quarterly Spook
Cancer tends to fluctuate in his moods a lot and is more of a seasonal ghost, where you'll only hear from him around the holidays or when summer starts, or really anytime where he might feel a little lonelier than usual. At most, you'll hook up again and then have him disappear until next time, like a groundhog of dating. His shadow magically appears during your worst dry spells.
He'll cut communication (or so you thought) until maybe a year or two later when he realizes he can try and connect for a job opportunity or other favor. If you see him at a party, the career-driven and overly bold Leo will try and network with you as if nothing ever happened. But hey, at least you can bask in that feeling of professional superiority to overcome the mind-numbing pain of all those unanswered texts! Hahahaha! Who's crying, what?
Virgo: The Ghost Who Flunked Ghosting School
Because Virgo wants to please everyone and be reliable, he'll still respond when you ask to hang out ... two weeks later. Fine, you get it, he's not ~that~ into you — he's just trying to be nice. Except he also is insistent on hanging out this weekend, or next week. "Great, what time?" you ask, naively thinking an actual date may come to fruition. Spoiler: He won't say when, until, you guessed it, two weeks later. "I really do want to hang out though!" Who is this guy and how has he made it this far in life anyway?Libra: The Phantom of the Unopened Text
You'll be in the middle of one of those text convos where each person responds with several paragraphs, diving into childhood memories and lifelong fears and everything else that makes texting briefly resemble 19th century love letters. Only thing is, there's no excuse of lost mail or dying horses to justify a complete and sudden conversational halt. And because the texts got so personal, you'll wonder what you actually said to make him unpredictably lose interest out of nowhere. So fun for you!! Really though, Libra is just kind of hot and cold about who he likes, so don't take it personally.Scorpio: The Supernaturally Un-embarassed
