Dear Kelly,

I went out on a bad date with a guy who now refuses to be ghosted. I didn’t respond to his initial message about another date, and now he sends follow-up messages every day. What do you do when a guy you don’t like refuses to be ghosted?

Dan,

I’m going to ask you to recall the Ghostbusters theme. Specifically I’d like you to recall the part that goes “I ain’t afraid of no ghost.” While this functioned as somewhat of an implied rallying cry for that team, if a somewhat dishonest one, it seems to be your problem. This man is not afraid of no ghost (you), and who is he “gonna call” (text)? You, over and over, without cease. (Yes, this makes you both the Ghostbusters. Let it go.) Luckily you’ve come to the right person, me: a ghostbuster-buster. Let’s get this problem solved.
