The act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone the subject is dating, but no longer wishes to date. This is done in hopes that the ghostee will just "get the hint" and leave the subject alone, as opposed to the subject simply telling them he/she is no longer interested. Ghosting is not specific to a certain gender and is closely related to the subject's maturity and communication skills. Many attempt to justify ghosting as a way to cease dating the ghostee without hurting their feelings, but it in fact proves the subject is thinking more of themselves, as ghosting often creates more confusion for the ghostee than if the subject kindly stated how he/she feels.
Carmen: How was your second date with Kyle?
Beth: I thought it went well, but I've texted him a couple of times since then and he's been ghosting me.
Carmen: What? I thought he was more mature than that.

(verb) The act of stubbornly going and remaining afk for hours on end, almost always while in the middle of an IM chat. A ghoster will not indicate that they are going afk, or will be afk ten times longer than suggested. Almost always occurs when the other IM chatters desperately require the attention or assistance of the ghoster.

To capture a midget, dress the midget in a long ballroom gown type dress (preferably white) duck tape the midget's hands to the ceiling fan blade and turn on the aforementioned ceiling fan so it appears there is a spooky ghost flying around the room
kyle: "hey mike, Next time your ghosting make sure you use more duct tape lest the midget fall and shatter your mirror."

mike: " We're going to hell."

Ghosting is a sport, sometimes described as a paradox, first devised by an Indian dental student. The scenario presents an individual's ability to be metaphysically present and absent in two frames of reference, simultaneously. In the events, one cannot determine with confidence whether one satisfies or nullifies the other. Both events are deemed to be true and witnesses remain in oblivion.
Example 1
Guy 1: where's jay gone?
Guy 2: oh he's ghosting again.

Example 2
Jayant woodeyar has been ghosting his way through dmd.
