TikTok user homemadecrybaby, whose name is Chloé, shared a video of her friend smiling as she got a guy's Snapchat message and her elaborate, 18-week plan to ghost him.
The friend, whose name is Kelly Tanner, created a note on her phone with a week-by-week guide, with her response time decreasing every seven days.
One week, she planned to wait an hour and a half to respond to his initial message, reply only 10 times, leave him on read and wait one hour to respond if he snaps her twice in a row.
Tanner told In The Know that she’s had a crush on this man for two years now.
“It hasn’t gone anywhere serious and I’ve known for a while that it probably won’t, but for some reason it’s been sooo hard for me to break it off,” she said.
Her 18-week plan allows her to taper down their communication without him really noticing — and without going through that painful “breakup” phase.
Tanner has only just started testing her plan and expects to make some changes in the future, but so far it’s “pretty simple”
