I have never done this to anyone. I would never consider breaking up with someone by simply disappearing from their life. I would not think very highly of myself if I did that.
I have never had anyone do that in am intimate relationship but I did once have someone try to do that. In my second year of law school, I had an interest in the young lady who cut my hair. I sent her roses on Valentine's Day and then we started dating. I was very much attracted to her and I also liked her as a friend. She was divorced and had two children - around ages 6 and 8 - with no child support.
We soon had an intimate relationship and I thought we were getting along well. We went on dates, I invited her to professional social functions I attended, and I thought all was well. In bed, we were very compatible and I thought we were both happy with our sexual activities. I did not know (but later learned) that she was struggling with a cocaine addiction which she hid from me. She suddenly refused to answer my phone calls (this was before cell phones/texting/emails.) After about a week, I went to where she parked her car while she was working and I waited for her.
She was shocked to see me. She did not confess to the cocaine addiction. She simply said that she thought that we were not compatible in the long term and it was better to end things now rather than later. No explanation for ghosting me. I knew that she was not telling me the truth but I also thought that she probably would never tell me the truth, so I gave her a goodbye kiss, turned and walked away. I never saw her again.
I later learned, from a mutual friend, that she thought I was "too good" for her (law student, intern in legislature, leading a fairly clean life) and that she thought I would dump her sooner or later. That was not true, as I had dealt with a similar problem earlier in my life, but it was her fear. I would have never guessed what had happened and, unless you are fortunate and have a concerned mutual friend, you may never know what happened in your situation.

Yea, that's totally normal, but you get over them eventually. If they left without any sort of warning clearly they didn't care about you all that much, so move on. There will always be relapses, where you'll do something or see something that will remind you of them and you'll think back on the good times and miss it, totally normal.
