You’ve probably become familiar with the terms “ghosting” (disappearing from someone’s life without explanation) and “orbiting” (breaking up a relationship with someone, but still communicating with them via social media). Now it’s time to learn about another related term: “zombieing.”

Whether you like these words or not, one thing is for sure. Today it is necessary to give a name to these intimate phenomena associated with the world of technology. Why? Because these media have changed the way people interact with each other. They have changed the way people start and end both romantic and platonic relationships.

Zombieing is a form of behavior that you are probably familiar with. It refers to a person who “ghosted” you and then, miraculously, “comes back to life.” This can be done via a text message, a messenger app or a response on your social media. Someone you thought was gone forever returns to your life with only one goal: to rekindle the relationship.

As strange or bizarre as it may seem, it is a common phenomenon. The worst thing about it is that it causes a lot of suffering.

Dealing with the unexplained disappearance of someone you had an emotional connection with is difficult. However, dealing with them coming back is a very peculiar dilemma. Let’s take a closer look at this.

Maybe you’re engrossed in your work or hanging out with your friends. Or maybe you’re even with your new romantic partner. Then it happens: you get a notification on your phone, take a look, and there he or she is.

Someone who was important to you and decided to stop responding for no reason suddenly comes back. Often they do so with cheerfulness, innocence, and even a bit of charm.

They usually do that with a simple salutation like “ Hey, how are you? How are you? I miss you .” Or maybe they’ll say, ” Hey, you look great on Instagram lately. Would you like to have a drink sometime? If this happened to you, you’ve experienced zombieing, a term coined in 2016.

Plus, these 21st-century zombies have an unusual, almost supernatural ability to come back just when you’ve gotten over the pain of their absence.

You have rebuilt your life with emotional connections and attachments to heal the pain of their abandonment. That ghost left you broken and then… there’s a knock on your door. What do you do in this situation? And more importantly, what kind of people do that?

These zombies need to feed their egos

Those who are zombies don’t just show up around Halloween. A real zombie will appear when they are hungry. The desire to feed their starved egos causes them to reach out to someone who once gave them what they needed: admiration, affection, and attention.

You could very well call them narcissists or just immature people with little empathy. However, this behavior unifies multiple processes. One of them is bad relationships. More than saying they have some kind of personality disorder, think of this as social behavior. Unfortunately, it is a pattern that is becoming more and more common.

Someone who suddenly left one day doesn’t need an excuse to come back. They do it because they don’t value the bond of the relationship. Their conscience is clear and they see no problem in their behavior.

The person who was previously a “ghost” returns as a zombie: it’s all about their lusts and needs. Love is disposable, made to be used and then thrown away or even recycled.

If this ex-partner comes back into your life after leaving you, they are doing it to feed their ego. You can also bet that their current reality is probably not very stimulating. They need new reinforcements and hope you will provide them as you did before.

The best thing you can do is don’t open the door

Dealing with zombieing puts you in a complicated situation. It opens old wounds after the balance you had achieved. Their sudden absence shocked you, and you had to process both the surprise and the anger. The people who come back into your life do so with flair, trying to get your attention as if nothing happened.

What should you do in these circumstances? First, be very careful. You mustn’t lose perspective and, tempting as it may be to read the messages, listen to the audios, or respond to the invitations that take you back to happy moments, don’t do that.

Their return is never without obligation or innocent. The zombie always takes something, always comes back hungry, and does a fantastic job of reopening old wounds.

If there’s one thing you’ve learned from a ghost, it’s that you shouldn’t give someone the chance to do it again. Love has nothing to do with ghosts or zombies. Any relationship that hurts, injures or extorts you is not real and you do not deserve this pain. Stay far away from them. So, don’t be afraid to block them. Remember that your heart is holy ground!
