This is a line I thought of whenever I hear stories of people ghosting their dates for petty reasons (eg. men ghosting women for refusing to have sex with them, women ghosting men who refuse to pay for first date). Reading this subreddit has definitely convinced me that people generally don’t care about other people as they feel they do not owe anyone anything. But they don’t like it when the other party has the same mindset. They only like it when the situation benefits them.
