As we all know, dating is hard, but being a fucking adult is much harder. Thankfully, the people behind an app that gives you free, temp numbers have just created a new add-on app called Ghostbot, which will automatically text your chosen ghostee until they get the message.

But how exactly does it work? Well, let's say that meh date texts you a kind, creepy winky face follow-up. Simply apply the bot to their number and the app will take it from there by screening their texts and then responding with a noncommital, uninterested response that lands somewhere between "I'm busy tonight :(" to "Nope." The process will then repeat accordingly until all hope of a follow-up date is completely squashed.

"It's designed to be noncommittal but also have a little bit of snark or character when it interprets a message that's provocative," Burner founder Will Carter explained to The Guardian. "We didn't want the bot to escalate or be too over-the-top or mean." But it will send you a poop emoji if you booty text. Boy bye, indeed.
