Aside from it being awkward as hell, there are the mind games. So, so many mind games.
And now you can add one more to the list – orbiting.
So, what is orbiting, you ask? Well, it’s the next step up from ghosting. The person you’re sort of seeing pretty much vanishes from your life, except you know they’re still around. Yes, we have arrived.
According to Man Repeller, orbiting is when you’ve been flirting with someone, only to have them disappear on you, but still show up on your social media.
They’re basically keeping tabs on you without any of the commitment or actual communication.
Kind of like when a guy doesn’t respond to your text, but watched your Instagram Stories video, so you know he’s still alive… They still want to keep you in their orbit.
Yep, we’ve all been there, and it’s sh*tty.
