I Didn’t Ghost! My Cell Phone Battery Just Died

No need to panic or key his car. His smartphone battery just died!

Once upon a time I was a very insecure woman. Actually, I’m going to call myself a “girl” since women are often too badass to jump to conclusions, track a man down and key his car. #NotGuilty. Yes, I was that girl. The one who is suspicious when he doesn’t text or call right back. The one who panics because she assumes his silence means he’s hiding something, cheating, avoiding, or worse, GHOSTING. See: girl with serious abandonment issues.

So when my then boyfriend, Luke, went MIA for 24 hours after I called and text him repeatedly, I decided we were O-V-E-R: OVER! I went full-on crazy girlfriend, searching his Facebook for clues and leaving dozens of angry messages.

“Don’t you dare call me back!” I yelled at his voicemail. “You asshole!”

Luke didn’t listen. In fact, he returned my calls 24 hours later and had a pretty good excuse: his cell phone battery died while he was traveling and no one had a phone charger. Believable as he was living in the stone ages and still had a flip phone.

This happens more often than you think. According to LG, low battery anxiety may just be ruining relationships as we believe our loved one has ghosted. In fact, 60 percent of those surveyed “blamed a dead phone for not speaking to a family member, friend, co-worker or significant other if their battery was low.” Your guy can’t call you if he’s in the red zone! He has to conserve as much batter as possible!

And that’s when an arguments occurs. An unanswered call or text due to a low battery or a dead phone is breaking couples up, y’all!

Luckily there is a solution. LG has included a removable battery in their latest LG G5 smartphone. You can switch out a used battery with a fresh one that is fully loaded. If he has an LG G5 smartphone, he’ll always be fully charged and get back to you STAT. So there’s no need to panic or key his car.
