To ghost on someone: To disappear into the shadows or the crowd, to simply slide away unnoticed so that when whoever you're with turns their head around, you're long gone. Good for ditching unwanted company; Bums, Narcs, obnoxious acquaintances. Often involves using shadows, corners and roofs to speed your exit.

Woman2: I saw him with Zoe at the mall yesterday... girl, you got ghosted.
