We have previously written about ghosting, which is when someone with whom you have had a date, or have been texting or emailing (or, heaven forbid, talking with on the phone), disappears without even the courtesy of telling you that they have decided that they are not interested, or are perhaps interested in or seeing someone else. Breadcrumbing, on the other hand, is when they don’t disappear, even though they are no longer genuinely interested in you.
