I've been dating my boyfriend for 5 years. Last week we had a fight and I stopped speaking to him. Around day 5 of not speaking to him, he went ghost. He wouldn't answer my calls or texts or even calls from my family. I heard from one of his friends that during this time he attended another friend's wedding in another state. He never told me anything beforehand, he just disappeared. Instead of fixing his own relationship he decided to do what he did. None of his other friends would reply to me when I was seeking information about his whereabouts leaving me so worried about whether he was okay or not. When he got back, he said that he needed time and space to think and doesn't really think what he did was a big deal. He said he had his phone with him but deliberately didn't answer any phone calls or texts from my family and I. Am I justified in being angry or is it my fault for not speaking to him initially?
Both of you has to step back and think about this relationship. Ghosting isn’t really helpful. Not talking either. For five years being in a relationship, I think it’s time to give it a thorough thinking. Well, having that feeling of contempt from each other isn’t really helping your relationship to grow.
