You’ve agonized over exactly what to say, sent the message to your four closest friends for feedback and finally got up the courage to hit “send.” Before your very eyes, you get the confirmation that your message has been “read” and you anxiously await the “…” that indicates a reply is moments away. And then nothing happens. My friend, you’ve just been R-bombed. R-bombing is when you know that a person has seen your message, but hasn’t responded to it. It’s similar to ghosting, in that you’re essentially being ignored, but while ghosting is final (and often includes being unfollowed or blocked on social media) R-bombing refers to a single incident of being ignored.
- What do you do when you’re clearly being “R Bombed”? Do you call the person?
