Breaking up with your partner by simply ignoring their text messages has become a common practice, a new study reveals
A TV location scout from Williamsburg said that the slow fade has happened to her more times than she'd like to admit and it really made her feel insignificant and sad, the New York Post reported.
Meanwhile, Samantha Escobar blogger from the Lower East Side defended the slow fade technique, saying that she uses it for relationships that are not very serious.
The 24-year-old said that she doesn't think that it is monstrous to just not text a person anymore.
According to Chiara Atik, the author of 'Modern Dating: A Field Guide,' fade-out is fine in the very early stages of dating, or even if you go on one or two dates with someone, as people don't owe one another lengthy explanations after a date or two.
