People Say What? To Fade

Posted on Oct 4 2015 - 11:00am by PopESL

Have you ever met someone you really liked but they slowly start disappearing from your life? Maybe they become slow at returning texts. Maybe they tell you they will call but they never do. They don’t disappear quickly, it’s the slow fade. It’s the way some people avoid breaking up or telling someone they are not interested. They hope you get the hint without being told.

According to Urban Dictionary the slow fade is defined like this:

Pronunciation: ‘slO ‘fAd
1: Lacking in readiness, or willingness to accept a budding relationship therefore, institutes this passive aggressive way of disappearing from a relationship all together over an extended period of time.

Have you experienced this? Have you ever faded on someone?
