Candace Cameron Bure Stands Up Against 'Ghosting' On 'The View'

According to, chances are, you've been "ghosted" in a relationship if you're young. A Plenty of Fish dating site survey of Millennials (18- to 33-year-olds) revealed that 78% of respondents say they've been "ghosted" at least once.


What exactly is "ghosting"? According to Business Insider, "ghosting" someone is the act of cutting off all contact with someone you've been dating without giving them any reason why. Call it a passive-aggressive form of dumping someone. And it's become increasingly popular and possible to disappear from someone's life considering how big a chunk of a Millennial's relationship is conducted online and through phone calls and text messages.

But on "The View," when comedian co-host Michelle Collins defended the practice of "ghosting" and freely admitted frequent usage, Christian and politically conservative co-host Candace Cameron Bure felt she had to speak up.

"I'm that person that calls, though," Candace said. "I've never 'ghosted' anyone, but I will pick up the phone and go 'can we meet?' because I need closure. I have to have the conversation. I want to look you in the eyes. Then, after that, if you don't stop, then I could 'ghost' you. But that's never been the case."

Do you agree with Candace? What do you think of the practice?
