Kelly Osbourne Reveals The Infuriating Reason A Guy ‘Ghosted’ Her

Over the years, Kelly Osbourne has been very open about her struggles with addiction. Following a relapse in 2017, the reality TV star celebrated a year sober in August. Though it was a difficult year for Osbourne, she says sobriety “feels amazing.”

“I used to think that being sober would be the end of all fun,” Osbourne said.  “But I’ve had more fun in this last year than I think I’ve ever had.”

One downside of sobriety that Osbourne may not have expected was the effect on her dating life.

At the Thursday launch of Loosid, a social media app for sober individuals, Osbourne told People how admitting her sobriety once lead to a guy ghosting her.

“I was asked out recently, and he said, ‘Let’s go for a drink.’ And I said, ‘I must let you know, I don’t drink,’” Osbourne said in her interview with People. “Ghosted me. It makes people uncomfortable because clearly that’s a problem in their life as well. When you look at the way people think, ‘If you want to have fun, you have to get wasted. You have to go out for drinks,’ it doesn’t have to revolve around that.”

Getting ghosted for being sober might be a thing of the past for Osbourne if Loosid takes off.

Loosid is currently available only in the New York City area, but excitement for it seems to be building.

The app aims to create a community for people who are either on the road to recovery or those who live a sober lifestyle.

Osbourne talked with People about the importance of the app for those looking to stay sober.

“I wish when I first got sober there was something like this already out. You really change a lot: Your social scene, where you go, where you hang out. In the beginning you only want to be around sober people. And you don’t even know where to begin because you can’t go back to what you were doing before. To have this instant community and this instant connection to people who think the way that you do, it’s really vital.”

Osbourne also shared some advice for those working on getting sober.

“Accept your vulnerability. Accept that it’s okay to feel vulnerable and uncomfortable. Once you have surrendered to knowing that pretty much every situation is gonna be a little bit uncomfortable, you can start to take it on and realize, ‘I can do this, now let me see if I can do this. Let’s take really small steps.’ They don’t say ‘one day at a time’ for no reason. And I used to hate sayings like that, but now I live by them.”

Loosid is now available for iOS and Android on the App Store and Google Play.
