I had three excellent dates with a guy. We talked and laughed a lot, made out, etc. He also made sure to book another date at the end of each one. Well fast forward to today when we were supposed to meet for our fourth date. We didn't have concrete plans but we did agree to meet today. Well we texted back and forth all week (mostly initiated by him) and things seemed okay except today nothing but silence. I send a text "Are you still up for meeting today' and silence. Needless to say I'm quite disappointed. Does anyone have similar stories of ghosting?

This is an unusual point in your relationship to have some drop you. If it happened after the first date, I would understand it as a cowards way of not telling you that "I don't feel any chemistry between us." He dated you three times, so you had his interest.
You say that you made out so I assume that means you did not have sex; is that correct? At this point in a relationship, usually you are not so established that you are beginning to have conflicts that lead to a break up. This is the honeymoon phase of dating. The only plausible explanation for being ghosted at this point is that he was already in a relationship that had problems, he started dating you, then he resolved things with the other girl.
I would wait to see if he lost his phone, battery went dead, had family emergency, or some other reasonable explanation for no contact. If you have not heard from him within 2-3 days, it is over and you need to move on. If that is the case, you may never get any explanation for what happened and that sucks. . . but that happens sometimes and it's just the way it is.0
