A guy that a friend is dating and talks a lot about but you've never met, with the implication that he's not real.

It's a super common phenomenon among gay men, especially when guys are dating someone who is not fully out. However, it's not unheard of among straight women.

In some instances, the situation revolves around the ghost party considering the relationship to be a booty call situation, while the other mistakes this as real romantic interest with a possibility of depth.

"Gerald's real? I thought he was just a ghost boyfriend!"
