How to deal with being ghosted?

I know I shouldn't take it personally but it's been difficult.

  • I always just repeat some iteration of 'hey, i'm an adult, you don't have to ghost me if you don't think this is working out. I would have infinitely more respect for you if you'd handled this openly because I'm not that fragile that I need the cold shoulder to shield me from some rejection. Its really not that big a deal, I understand & i've done the same thing with other people'

    • Whatever you write to them to try guilt them, they literally won't give a fuck. That's why they ghosted the other person cause they're too lazy to say they aren't interested anymore. In short, they don't want to invest anymore time in the other person. Getting butthurt about being ghosted isn't going to change their mind. Better to move on.

    • I don't care about guilting them, if that happens though i'm perfectly content with it lol

      I just don't feel like that's an adult way to end contact with someone else. I don't want to ever be rude about it, I just want them to have some nuts about it if they truly don't want to talk because its wrong to ghost people out of nowhere. I don't give a fuck if they're too lazy for common courtesy, that's not going to stop me. They can continue acting lazy & not even read my message if that's how they wanna play it.

    • Fair enough and I'm 100% with you on how rude it is. I only ghosted once before and that's cause her dating profile was a lie.

      But I'm not going to waste more time on them msging again and looking needy in the process.

  • Cry it out if you need to, let time help you heal and try to go on from there. People who ghost usually never think about the other person's feelings or whats its like to be in their shoes. They are selfish and only thinking about themselves, these people usually won't get it until they find someone they're truly interested in ghosts them. These people think running away solves problems and less painful, and that's not the kind of people you want in your life anyways. If they don't have the backbone to tell you they are no longer interested, then they probably don't have the backbone to handle real issues in a relationship.

  • You laugh and move on. If they can't summon the cojones to tell you they're not into you, they weren't at your caliber to begin with.

  • If someone is ghosting you then it's probably for the best, because you and him are not a match. If you were to force yourselves to share something together then the outcome would have been most definitely unpleasant. Like they say, plenty of fish in the sea, so why bother?

  • If you're getting ignored then you just shake. it off and just keep moving forward. Eventually you grow thick skin and can just move on, just hang in there.

  • This a very real controversial question. And it happens to everyone.

    Think why you're ghosting other people. People who are ghosting you probably have similar reasons.

  • Think of him of as someone who wasn't worth your time. I say this because I got ghosted my a girl myself not too long ago. Except I moved on real fast because I honestly believe she wasn't worth my time.

  • Okay so like no dear John no hey I'm sorry and none of that it happens to me sometimes that you don't want it to happen and still happen but you have to learn to take the positive from that and move forward with it

  • I’m dealing with the same thing, I’d say if they’re immature enough to ghost you then you’re better off without them. You’ll move. If you had feelings for them it’s ok to be upset but it’s not personal. It’s usually something on their end.

  • You are entitled to your emotions
    Think it through, mourn it, learn from it and move on. I know it's not easy but it's best for yourself
