Submarining (also known as zombie-ing) is a type of ghosting. This is when someone you’re seeing or talking to just completely disappears… only to get back in touch a few months down the line as if nothing has happened. Like a submarine, breaking the water. A lot of times this can happen just as you’re moving past being ghosted.

Example Use: “He just sent me a ‘Hey’ message after 3 months of silence?! Of course I didn’t reply, I’m not in to submarining!”
