Ghosting, if you’re unaware, is the douchebag act of ending a personal relationship by suddenly withdrawing all forms of communication without any explanation.
And for reasons unknown, a social media trend about ghosting has popped up in recent months, one that tags Thomasians as notorious ghosters.
UST in 2009 was known for ghost stories ?
UST in 2019 is now known for ghosting stories ?

And while we were quick to chalk these up to another incident of a university being hilariously stereotyped (same with DLSU and ADMU’s ‘conyo’ label, for example), a Twitter thread by @SirRenzSaavedra seems to prove that there’s an overwhelming truth behind the claims.
UST “GHOST” STORIES.

Renz basically summoned the Twitterverse to share their ultimate ‘tiger ghosting stories’ and netizens were quick to bite (*wink *wink) to his request.
Here are a few of them.
‘Sumama na sa iba’
‘Don’t hope too much’
‘Iiwan ka without knowing where you went wrong’
‘(You don’t know if) you will stop waiting na ba or keep on waiting’
‘Puntahan kita sa USTE pag di mo ako nireplyan’
‘Kasama ko girlfriend ko now’
Why can’t we just be friends?
Most are actually pretty sweet.
