Slow-fading is a term similar to Ghosting. It’s the situation where you gradually stop hanging out and communicating with your date. While Ghosting is more about ceasing communication abruptly, Slow-fading in dating is something that goes step-by-step until it stops.
Slow-fading often occurs when your date is interested in you at first, but then is not brave enough to tell you that it’s not that into you. He/she doesn’t want to hurt you, so he/she keeps conversations for a while, but gradually becomes out of reach.
