Transcript for New show 'Ghosted' looks at how relationships abruptly end
All right, Amy and now to the hot, new show about finding love and facing rejection in the ever changing digital world. Mtv's "Ghosted" so take a look. It's a familiar term for far too many daters. Have you ever been ghosted? The techs were going through. He was my best friend. Reporter: In a new eight-part docu-series "Ghosted, love gone missing" former bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay and travel team up traveling the country looking for love gone missing searching for former friends and loved ones who seemingly dropped off the grid. I had a good reason for ghosting him. You're going to get a chance to say everything that you've been wanting to say for the last year. And the hopes of closing the chapter in their lives like Ross and Jordan who dated for nine months when Jordan suddenly disappeared. You know, you're like the one girl that I actually wanted to grow old with. Reporter: And Reese and I need to know why you ghosted me. Their stories begging the question will their ghosts haunt them forever. Mtv's "Ghosted, love gone missing" airs Tuesday nights on mtv and now Bela Gandhi is here with some advice. Thank you for joining us. Well, it seems like these days, everybody gets ghosted. But is ghosting more common now than it used to be. It is more common because it's easier to do. Right? It's easier than having that tough conversation with somebody. That's going to result in emotions and conflict, right? Ghosting is just vanishing abruptly. It could be in a romantic relationship. But in a friendship as well. It's like the ultimate cruel use of the silent treatment. You get no closure. You get to ask no questions. It's painful. It's painful, right. Why do we handle it so badly because it is painful? Social rejection and ghosting, it activates the same pathways in the brain as physical pain so when somebody vanishes you can feel like you're punched in the face, kicked in the stomach. It just hurts. It makes you question yourself at your core. Okay, so trying to help somebody here, red flags, maybe you're dating somebody, talking to somebody, are there red flags can you look for to see if they're a ghoster. If this person has bragged about ghosting people in the past they're probably going to ghost you if they're flaky or inconsistent and most importantly if they were super into you in the beginning but now suddenly they're busy and the communication is dwindling off, that's ripe for a ghosting situation. You know how many people at home going hmm. All right, and last but not least, if you are ghosted, how do you recommend people handle it? Be around people that elevate you that are going to make you feel good about yourself. Don't take this personally and don't question your self-worth and look at this as a blessing in disguise. This person told you, I cannot have a healthy, adult relationship because relationships have conflict, right? You dodged a bullet and don't let the ghost spook you out of having good relationships, open yourself up and move on. That is right. That is so right. Open up, move on. I was going to ask, anybody here ever been ghosted? Anybody here ever been ghosted? They're like, yeah, not going to raise their hands. Everybody's been ghosted. That's right. Hey, thank you so much for the advice. Really appreciate it.
