Something that immature little boys do to girls when they're too cowardly to say they're no longer interested. This results in the boy feeling great he got away so easily without any "drama" but leaves the girl with an inordinate amount of pain, anxiety and over-thinking about what the hell she did/said/texted wrong.

A phenomena made popular in modern society with the more disposable forms of communication such as text messages thereby removing the ghosted from any culpability or having to deal with a real face to face response.
Hey did you hear from Rick since your last date??

Rick? Oh you mean Casper! He's been ghosting me since Saturday - disappeared without a trace!

During sex - doggystyle - switch with a friend at the point of climax, but without allowing the girl to realise. For ghosting to take full effect, ensure that the girl is positioned against a first floor window, looking out. After the switch, run down and wave through the window. Then simply enjoy her reaction to 'seeing a ghost'.
"Hey Olly, that ghosting session last night was wild."
"Yeah, until she tore off my testicle."

"What was up with the ghosting last night?" I have no idea. After that last shot of tequila I don't know what happened. I think I left my credit card at the bar.
