Annie: Hi, I’m Annie Chen.
Michael: Hi. This is Michael Waitze.
Colin: And I’m the third wheel, Colin Hodge.
Sara: Hi, my name is Sara, and one word I would use to describe my funniest date is ghosting.
Sara: I’m like the mother of ghosting.
Michael: My God, that’s the one word I never thought you’d say. Ghosting.
Annie: I can’t wait to hear this.
Sara: I have so many stories, but it’s not just me, it’s the guy as well. So that’s why I have to ghost them, because it’s so awkward sometimes.
Michael: Go ahead, tell the story.
Sara: Okay, that’s the time. Of course, I met a guy on an app, and then like, okay, we talk, and then I find that, okay, maybe it’s time that we can meet. So we will decided to go to a museum. And then of course, once you browse on the app, like hey, this guy looks like decent and everything. Like, when I was there, the Gary, and then I was looking for this guy for so long.
Michael: Wait, so how do you judge whether the guy looks decent or not? I mean, he’s just posting a picture of himself, right?
Sara: Yes. I have my standard, okay.
Michael: You have a standard? Okay.
Sara: Yeah, maybe like some white guy.. *laughs* And then I was at the gallery and he was texting me. He is here as well. So I was like, looking at my phone and looked at his photo as well. I was like, trying to look for this guy, but apparently there’s no guys around that looks like that.
Michael: But did he say he was there?
Michael: Did he say he was there?
Sara: Yeah, he said he was there.
Sara: But then I cannot find him anywhere. And then I asked him, what shirt color are you wearing? And he’s like, black. And I’m like, definitely like-
Colin: Security guard.
Sara, Michael and Annie laughs.
Sara: Actually. Yeah, a guy in uniform. No Colin, no. The thing is, he doesn’t look like the photo at all. That photo must be taken, like, let’s say five years back. And he’s completely changed now. But okay, I tried to be polite.
Colin: That’s the worst.
Sara: I tried to be polite. And then like, okay, we went to get a ticket and walk around the museum and everything.
Michael: Wait, so that was the guy? So you found that guy in the black shirt, but it looked like a completely different guy.
Michael: You still said never mind, I’m going anyway. Yeah, go ahead.
Sara: I tried to be polite. Very yeah. There’s so many awkward moments. He just asked me, do you know this actors? And I’m like, not sure. And then I was just like, because I appreciate more other type of art than what he invited me to go see.
Sara: So I was trying to get myself out. The worst thing I did was like, I have smartwatch, and I have my phone. So, I have my watch ring my phone, and then I pick up the phone and then, hey, I have to go now. It’s very urgent. Family matter.
Colin: The self emergency call. Is that what happened there?
Sara: Exactly. But it’s actually like my watch. Just call my phone. It’s like a find, my phone function.
Sara: Yeah. Just like to get out of this. And then of course he was trying to text me and everything as well. And since I’m the mother of ghosting so I just disappear. I delete all the apps and chats and everything. Not just that. I block him as well. Every possible way that he can’t communicate back.
Michael: Was he that bad?
Sara: Doesn’t look like the photo at all. And how to call this- is more like the mindset that he has is not aligned with what I want to go for. And I’m very judgmental.
Michael: You know right from the beginning?
Sara: We talked a little, we talked on the app already, but okay, maybe I can just give him a chance. I gave him the chance. He lost that chance.
Michael: I gave him a chance and he lost the chance. But you call yourself the mother of ghosting, so is this something that you do a lot?
Sara: Exactly. That’s not the only story I have, though.
Michael: For ghosting people?
Michael: Wow, I think I’ve only done that once in my life. That’s amazing. You couldn’t even give the guy- Can I ask you this, though, what kind of date is that? A museum? Colin, have you ever been at a date at a museum?
Colin: I probably would have ghosted them too. That sounds boring as hell.
Michael: I don’t think I would have accepted the date to the museum. Annie, have you ever been to a date to a museum?
Annie: No, and I’m not planning to.
Michael: Yes, I think even if Magic Mike asked me, I wouldn’t go to on a date to a museum.
Sara: I would prefer Magic Mike, though.
Michael: The performance, I understand.
Michael: But the location I don’t get.
Colin: Sarah, we have a surprise for you. This man that you ghosted at the museum, he’s also joining us today.
Sara: No way.
Michael: Why do you ghost?
Sara: I feel like it has to be something that says click, but it doesn’t at all.
Michael: Do you just walk away?
Sara: Yeah, I didn’t just walk away. I told him I have like, family emergency.
Michael: Do you think you bought it?
Sara:I don’t care.
Colin: Sarah, how many people do you think you’ve ghosted in total? Are we talking hundreds? Thousands? Millions?
Sara: It’s only a billion. I’m kidding. No, actually, for me, I don’t date a lot. I feel like I’ve been working, like quite busy. But of course from time to time you have to go on a date just to spice your life up a little. Yeah. So there’s another story that okay, I went on a date with this guy. We went to rooftop bar. So yeah, it’s much better.
Michael: Better start.
Sara: We talk and then he looks like the photos on the app as well. So that’s the plus. And then of course after a while the conversation is like getting intimate. So after that, I thought okay, I’ll go back with him to the hotel room because he doesn’t live in the same country as I do. So I went back with him and of course we start kissing and everything. And then-
Colin: What is everything? Hold on.
Sara: What do you mean? Like, of course we’re trying to take over, like, close off.
Annie: Wait, and then you found that he has a small dick. Oh my God. Wait, am I allowed to say that?
Sara: Exactly! You know what? I will call this guy Thumbelina. Exactly. So what? Like, I told him that my stomach doesn’t feel good at all. Time yourself in the bathroom and then for so long, like, ten minutes, keep flushing the toilet, like, watching it.
Michael: Did you ask yourself, if I go out there, I don’t know what to do with that thing because it’s too small. Like, what if I can’t find it? Did you ask yourself questions?
Sara: Can I use magnifying glass? Sorry. Yeah, I’m mean and then after I went out of the toilet, I was like, I really need to go. I feel so sick. I have to go back.
Michael: What did he do? Did he cry?
Sara: No, he didn’t cry. He was quite mature enough. So I left, and he was texting me like “hey, are you okay, are you feeling better?” And I replied politely ‘yes’, and after that I ghosted him. So once he came back to the country and lived here again, he was like ‘hey I brought you some wine, like great quality wine, should we meet again?’
Sara: And I told him, “hm, you know what I’m trying to get myself sober, so on weekdays I’m not drinking.” But it was a weekday – actually I drink almost everyday. And of course I deleted everything, I deleted this app, his contact, but the thing is I forgot to delete his number on my phone. The thing is a couple years later I have the new app, and since I forgot, every contact was imported.
Michael: Without your consent, yeah.
Sara: Exactly. And there’s a notification sent to those people-
Michael: Yeah they get a notification that says ‘oh this person has now joined your app’.
Sara: Correct! And I’m like- I didn’t realize that.
Michael: You almost hit the F word there, I saw you, you were like-
Sara: Yeah, hahahha. And then like he said Hi back to me again, and I’m like f*ck no, I forgot about you already, shit. And he said “from your profile picture your hair is so long now, can I see you photo now?”
Annie: Is your dick longer?
Colin: Poor Thumbelina.
Michael: Yeah, poor Thumbelina.
Sara: But shouldn’t you be proud if someone masturbated to your photo? I’m kidding.
Michael: Sara, I think instead of calling yourself the mother of ghosting, you should be the Queen of ghosting. And frankly I cannot thank you enough for sharing that second story with us. Because the compilation was amazing. Thank you so much for that, that was awesome, Sara.
Sara: Well I’ll try not to ghost people in the future.
