Ask a Guy: Why Did He Suddenly Stop Texting Me?

Dating in the 21st century can be a free-for-all. Ghosting has become so prevalent than many people I talk to, including myself, often have no, or very low, expectations when it comes to meeting a new person. If relationships are supposedly built on communication, then why do people ghost? I would suggest calling over texting, as it is easier to ignore a text.

It happens to the best of us. Russo thinks that the new boom in dating apps and meeting through the internet may be the reason why ghosting has become such a frustrating and popular dating phenomenon. It has increased with the popularity of online dating and more so with dating apps. Are they good for finding serious relationships, or are they some form of a hook-up game? While ignoring someone entirely may, in fact, be easier than giving the person an actual explanation of your disinterest, is it really the best route to take?

Christian, a year-old living in Chicago, thinks it can be in certain cases. Milk Makeup: Have you ever ghosted anyone? Yes, I have. How long were you seeing the person before you decided to ghost her? I actually met her on Tinder, and we hung out a few times. Did you ever see her again? Did she call you out? I did run into her at a bar that we both went to frequently.

Did you change your number? What was it about her that made you want to ghost? She started to get really clingy and talk about our future, after only knowing each other for a month or two. She was about to move into a new apartment and mentioned living together. To be honest, I was just looking for an easy hook-up. So, you say you were just looking for an easy hook-up.

I definitely led her on more than I should have, and I feel really bad about that now. We talked about personal stuff, you know? I did like her and felt comfortable with her, but her constant texting, Snapchatting, and her bringing up the topic of marriage was just too much for me. Do you regret ghosting her? Or do you stand by your decision to do so? But in this particular situation, I happen to know that she has a boyfriend now and has moved away.

So, maybe ghosting her was for the best if it led her to a happy relationship. Why did ghosting them seem like the best option in the scheme of things? Was it the easiest way to go about ending things? There was nothing I could say to her that she would want to hear. It definitely felt as though it was my best, and definitely my easiest, option. Have you ever ghosted someone? How long did you know the person before you decided to ghost them?

What was it about them that made you decide to ghost? I was kind of dating around, playing the field, and not wanting to be associated with any one individual. This was something that I was honest with him about from the start. He would ask if I wanted to hang and I would outright tell him that I was going out with someone else that night. Did you ever see the person again?

Did they call you out? Well… as soon as the ghosting was underway, he only got worse. I ended up deleting his number. Do you regret ghosting them? If he was a genuinely nice guy, I would have sat him down and told him I was done with him. But instead he called me names and thought it would work. I do not recommend ghosting someone. It all leads back to your maturity. He eventually got the message and left me alone, which is all I wanted in the first place. But as far as ghosting goes, I would never recommend doing it unless it was an extreme case like mine was.

Daniel, a year-old living in Philadelphia, thinks that ghosting can often be due to a situational occurrence, rather than a blatant disinterest in the ghostee. How long were you seeing them before you decided to ghost them? The first, and only time that I ghosted someone was about four years ago. I was just finishing my freshman year of college and was 19 and immature. I met a girl at school who I actually was super into. We texted non-stop, and I had actually purchased a bus ticket to visit her since we were from different states.

We began talking in March, and I ghosted her around mid-May. Unfortunately, we went to the same school and were a part of the same friend circle, so when we got back to school in August I saw her very frequently. She never called me out on it, but then again, she literally never spoke to me again. When she walked past me on campus, she would deliberately look away from me, or raise her chin and accelerate her pace.

Why did you decide to ghost her? Stateside, I was an underage male, but in Europe, I was a bachelor spending all of my money on booze. It really had nothing to do with her, and everything to do with Czech Pilzners. I guess I have two answers to this question. I ruined any chance I had with her, ruined our friendship, and made it very awkward between us.

I even ghosted my parents while on this trip, going to a music festival in Belgium and turning my phone off for eight days, causing my parents to be worried sick. My point is, I was dumb and immature during that entire chapter of my life, and am smarter now because of that chapter. Why did ghosting seem like the best option in the grand scheme of things? Was it the easiest way to go about ending it? The ghosting was kind of unintentional.

I went to Europe with every intention of starting things up with her again once I got back to school. Instead, I met someone else. James, a year-old gay man living in Washington, DC, thinks that ghosting may actually be more popular among same-sex couples. Have you ever been ghosted? Yes, I have been ghosted many times. What did it feel like to be ghosted? Getting ghosted by someone you really like totally sucks. Do you think ghosting is just as common in same-sex relationships?

Claire, a year-old living in Washington, DC, is still getting over being recently ghosted. Yes, I actually have been ghosted recently and I found it really confusing. Either way, I felt like he should have at least acted like an adult and just been honest with me about what the situation was. Did you ever see him again? Did you call him out? Why do you think he chose to ghost you? He was definitely pushing it but I told him I wanted to take things slow, and I think that could very well be the reason.

While we may never arrive at a precise scientific understanding of why people ghost, we can try our best to deal with the pain and frustration of being ghosted so that moving on with life is a little easier. Russo advises that the most critical part of moving forward is dealing with being ghosted in whichever way works best for you. If it is best for you to say something to the person ghosting, then that is the best reaction. Do what you need to do to help yourself move forward.

A big reason why women do this is because instinctively they feel they need to physically protect themselves. Even if a guy is really nice and sweet, a woman still fears that he might become angry or violent if she breaks up with him.

Regardless of whether your girlfriend is just temporarily angry at you or really does want to break up with you, the action you need to take is the same.
