We asked our February cover star Aja Naomi King about the dating world and for some of her worst date experiences, and she hit us with some solid truths about when you should leave a person on read. She doesn't actually think ghosting is a bad thing (and neither do we). "Ghosting is a form of self-care sometimes," she says, "and I think we all need to learn that not everyone is deserving of our time."
Above, she gives us more dating advice.
