To get ghosted is when a girl randomly changes her cell number and doesn't tell you what it is. Usually there is a boyfriend involved, and hes not you.
"She ghosted me after her boyfriend found out we were hooking up."

When a person (male or female) leads on another person into thinking they're interested in them. After leading on this individual they "ghost" them and disappear. This is usually indicated from no responses through text, phone call or email. Ghosting is performed by selfish people and ones who don't believe in karma. Because what goes around, most certainly comes around.
Dave: Yo what happened to Jess?
Fil: idk man, she won't hit me back up
Dave: man she ghosted you
Fil: truuuuu
