But what of the (usually) male version of the tends-to-be-female Love Zombie? Let’s call him the Ghost-Bolter.
As in he bolts at the slightest hint of a theoretical change in the astrophysics of the day. And then it is as if he was a ghost. There remains but a slight tinge of strange aftershave in the air, maybe a cryptic text message, a slight disturbance of the molecules.
Despite protestations of love/lust, non-stop pestering you, actual plans even – the Ghost Bolter has disappeared into another dimension. One where the only communication occurs by telepathy, if that. Dude has supernatural skills for sure.
Nobody knows if Love Zombies contribute to Ghost-Bolters or if it is the other way around.
Some Ghost-Bolters even remain present and correct in the relationship but for all intents & purposes, the Ghost-Bolter has in fact gone already. You might fear that it’s a version of dementia and sprinkle drops of ginkgo biloba in his wine or insist he sees a medic but in fact he’s just a Ghost-Bolter. He’s off roaming the astral plains, leaving you the form of his physical self.
Love Zombies & Ghost-Bolters sometimes attempt to mate, with predictably hideous results. Love Zombies feel that all relationship problems can be solved by stalking, voodoo and understanding the karmic implications of their one night stand seven years ago. Ghost-Bolters prefer a more existential approach; being Not There.
Astrological Indicators of Ghost-Bolters – they’re more likely to be mutables; Virgo, Gemini, Pisces, Saggo and/or with tricky Mars, Mercury, Uranus aspects. Aquarius men are Ghost-Bolters but they bolt back in again the moment they sense your interest wavering. You genuinely don’t give a fuq anymore? There will be Aquarius, at your door in the dead of night, with flowers picked from a field in another dimension.
