  • I think the only guys that ghost or flake are the players. It would seem to me that more women tend to use the silent treatment to try and get men to get the hint and leave them alone. There are plenty of clingy men too and it only makes sense that women would use ghosting to stay clear. Usually talking to a clingy dude just makes his behavior worse.

    Women also ghost when they are mad, they tend to be more passive-aggressive. Why? Because the tactic works very well on men. Men tend to let things eat away at their ego, so when a woman backs off, men notice her acting different and it bugs the shit of the more insecure among us. The ghosting in a way is like a test. I hate game playing, but this test works because insecure men will then give up power and start to chase. Now he is in a far weaker position and I think the relationship at that point is hard to recover.

    Ghosting sucks though. It is a sign that there is poor communication, especially it happens in an established relationship.

    If it happens early on, it is only because men tend to take rejection pretty damn hard once they feel things are going well. Women don't want to be the target of a man's wrath, especially if they simply aren't interested in anymore.

    • Do you still call the guy ghosting a player if we were dating for 6 months?

    • I don't know how common it is, it's only happened to me the once recently before then I didn't really know what it was. But it sounds fairly common after coming on here

    • Perhaps I stand corrected.

  • I’d guess females, because we’re less upfront when it comes to hurting feelings and tend to assume our “hints” should be enough

  • I believe women do that more often. I think that ghosting somebody is disrespectful, since both are adults and mature, I think everyone should be straight forward and say that nothing is going to happen besides friendships, maybe. That’s it, simple and easy.

  • I haven't been ghosted on but I'd say equally.

    Girls ghost because they get the odd vibe from a guy or suddenly aren't feel it and guys ghost because let's be honest... after you've been on enough dates it gets REALLY boring and repetitive

    • Why would guys make more plans to see you if it was boring but then ghost?

    • Honestly I don't know, sometimes guys literally like the security of knowing they could go on a date but at the last moment are like "ehhh god I dunno if I want to go on this date... there are other things to do"

      Dating is REALLY boring for guys by the way

  • Girls seem to ghost more because they tend to assume the worst without digging deeper and guys tend to ghost more when they are bored with a girl or realize she isn't as interesting or appealing as they once thought.

  • I would say females... but I think males ghost girls without even knowing it or trying to. Females play these weird games like not texting back to see if we're interested... a normal guy doesn't even know a game is getting played and just figures she ghosted him, case closed... he thinks he's just ghosting back.

  • I would say females , as they have far more options than their male counterparts & as per @Wonderer , tend to expect men to " get their hints " ... which I have done in the past & simply forgot them , it helps being intuitive & having a " detached " personality !! One even tried to get back in touch & I completely forgot who she was ! " Ghosting " does show a lack of decent character , just be upfront !!

    • Why do you have your kids pictures as your profile picture on a site based on sexual behavior? Not smart buddy

    • Show All
    • @WingGirl The young ( & smart lady @gigipcz ) beat me to it , she is a year older than my boy !! ... One key reason I'm on this site is I'm a single dad... with a son & , importantly.. a daughter , so female input is very handy !! I have NEVER had any untoward attention towards my children... IRL few people would even dare !!

    • That makes sense. I apologize. I just got a different vibe from the site. Lots of explicit conversation and pictures for sexual attention.

  • You are offending the ghosts. Only ghosts can ghosts someone

  • Depends on the personality type I know according to your definition I ghost a lot. For me that's because I easily get distracted. By life's projects. Which I feel is normal or very understandable. Although I do know some that ghost to brake up the relationship and I feel that is extremely common. Tactic used by both sex.

  • Guys in my opinion. Girls are less likely to respond in the beginning but once the conversation gets going it's usually the guy who ghosts the girl.

  • Definitely girls. Us guys only ghost when we lose interest in a girl and we think that she won't notice or care that we're gone. Girls aren't interested in most males and want to be "nice" so they ghost far more frequently than guys.

  • Interesting lol
    How females are getting hit hard

    The girls love seeing the votes in favour for females cause it just makes them feel powerful knowing they ghost instead of be ghosted

    Damn women lol

  • I think women for sure. I would imagine they get a lot more unwanted attention than men, and it leads to ghosting with girls who don't know what to do to get rid of them, or just don't care.

  • I feel females got when they are trying to get from an unwanted situation, and I think males ghost when things get too hectic for them or there feelings catch up with them.

    • What do you mean their feelings catch up with them?

    • My guess would be he lost interest. My main point is myself or any guy I've ever known would never deliberately ignore a girl who we care about. It's not a mature or cool thing to do in the first place, let alone to someone who you apparently really like. However of course, there could be exceptions to that and I could be wrong in some circumstances, but I find it hard to believe.

    • @Kkaos true! It doesn't make sense to cease contact with someone you really care about

  • I voted for girls but honestly I think it is about equal. I've ghosted people before but it was more along the lines of we just met and it either wasn't going anywhere or he was being creepy, not legitimately hanging out/talking all of the time in which case I'd obviously give a reason.

  • Well from the question I see on here regularly, it seems to be guys who end up doing the vanishing act the most. Girls are always asking why the guy they were seeing just randomly stopped calling or spending time together especially if sex didn't happen or happened too fast.

  • I have never ghosted anybody, I always try to be upfront with people because that's how I would want to be treated. However, I have been ghosted by a guy twice.

  • It's equal a lot of men and women are cowards and don't want to tell someone its over for whatever reason or they don't think they have too because the person should know what they did was wrong or out of line and no one should have to explain it why they stop talking.

  • The polls look exactly the way I expected lol. Of course guys are gonna vote girls and vice versa. We're voting based off of experiences. I can honestly say that I've been ghosted before AND I know of multiple guys that have admitted to ghosting other girls before, so therefore, guys will get my vote here.

  • I ghost 24/7 not to be rude but like because I do not have the energy required to be social if someone wants a dry ass conversation.

    • Would yoh ghost someone who you've been dating for a long period of time? Or just someone you haven't met on only been on one or two dates?

    • I regularly can't be bothered to reply to my husbands texts I don't know if that helps I'll even ghost my own mum

    • Is that really ghosting though, because I assume you would contact them eventually?

  • Well I've been ghosted a bit and I rarely ghost people (now, was kinda bad at it when I was younger. Didn't have the spine to tell them I wasn't interested anymore)
