The "Fade Out" is when you slowly stop hanging out, calling, emailing, and text messaging, a friend or more specifically a lover, with the intent of never speaking to them again. The "Fade Out" when put into action correctly should take no more than a month to completely "Fade Out" the offending party. If you tend do "Drunk Dialing" it will certainly extend and possibly cancel the "Fade Out" process and you will have to start over. If you attempt the "Fade Out" after 2 months of dating be prepared for retaliation. Be warned that if you dare put the "Fade Out" into action and aren't fully committed to the process you will end up in a horrible relationship that will never end. The "Fade Out" works best when fading out men, however, women seem to be more attracted to men who use the "Fade Out".
"I am getting bored with John, I think I am going to 'fade him out'".
"Mike hasn't called me back in a week, I think he might be trying to do the 'fade out'".
"Matt is trying to fade her out!? Puh-lease I invented the Fade Out"!
