What is Zombieing?
Zombieing refers to a dating phenomenon in which a person who previously ghosted or disappeared from someone’s life suddenly reappears.
Often this is after a significant period of time, without any explanation or acknowledgment of their previous absence. It is named “zombieing” because the person seemingly comes back from the dead, similar to how a fictional zombie would.
This behaviour can leave the person who was ghosted feeling confused, hurt, and uncertain about how to respond to the sudden reappearance of the individual who previously disappeared from their life. Zombieing can be emotionally manipulative and disrespectful, as it disregards the impact of the initial ghosting and can disrupt the emotional healing process.
