The attack of the EXES during the Covid-19 Pandemic

Share This
Most of us have been ghosted at least once in our lifetime, and if you are not familiar with the term "ghosted" you are definitely familiar with the act. Ghosting is "the practice of ending a personal relationship with someone by suddenly and without explanation withdrawing from all communication", sounds familiar now?
In my youth, my early teenage years, when the internet connection was still on dial-up, smartphones were not available to common users and Facebook users were still too shy to share their detailed personal life online for the whole world to see, and back when social media was not a thing yet, I still remember receiving landline phone calls from old flings because they "remembered me while going through the school album" and I shamefully admit I also remember calling an old flame after I got ghosted to check on him after the so called "nightmare" I had, or an innocent "I'm sorry I dialed the wrong number by mistake". We all used some sort of excuse to hit up an old crush, an ex or even a friend.
It is a well-known fact that we become nostalgic for personal reasons but also a lot of our nostalgia is related to external factors like, believe it or not, the weather, yes springtime, early rose blossoms, sun and fresh air, renewal of nature also is a renewal of our feelings, just like Christmas period, during which many of us experience longing to stability and family life, which makes us reconnect with old flames, exes and crushes. Hopes for a second, better chance. Here's what we should add to the list!
A survey study in the United Kingdom shows a whopping 38% of participants have been contacted by their exes, during the CoronaVirus quarantine, who priorly ghosted them. This called for an assessment for this phenomenon, Pandemic Reverse Ghosting Syndrome (PRGS), the article I read about PRGS by Ravi Chandra, psychiatrist and writer, divides the syndrome into 3 categories, mild being a welcomed contact, moderate being a nice but stay cautious surprise, and severe being a contact from a former abusive partner and that's where you should be very conscious of every step you make because if this relationship ended it did so for a very good reason, and it might be better to keep it as such.
The fact is, the Covid-19 Pandemic has made us all reevaluate our past, our mistakes and our missed opportunities, we have had a lot of time reassessing our life choices, out of boredom and loneliness we might reach out to an ex because it's a familiar zone, and we can pick up right where we left off, "he/she is a quick fix" just like you also might be "a quick fix" when you get the late night "I miss you" text, evaluate the situation thoroughly before you text back into your "good riddance" past.
