Why do guys go silent after a break up?

Since me and my boyfriend broke up we haven't contacted each other. He went completely silent.
What are the reasons for a guys to go silent after a break up?

  • Its the best method. We understand that emotions could be running high, so we try and make it as easy as possible, so we make the effort of keeping out of their way for a while, just incase of a fall out, x

  • It is quite common - and quite respectful, if you ask me. If he was the one who ended it he wants to make sure that he is not sending any mixed signals that would make you believe the decision was not final. And he probably wants to make it easier on both of you to move on by creating some distance.

    It sucks, I know :( I'm sorry you're going through this right now.

  • You reflect upon your mistakes. You try to move on. Hence the silence.

  • I am going threw the same thing and I realize its better this way. do you want to hear him talking about other girls? its better for things to be silent then for you 2 be fighting. Guys and women handle things very differently especially after a breakup. its also their way of saying that the relationship is over and you better move on.

  • I would say either they are trying to move on or moved on already. Normally after break ups you don't contact each other. It sucks I know but i figure if they don't reach out to check on me then why should I? Especially if they were the ones to call it off.
