But it’s much more effective for mature adults to just tell someone you don’t really see potential for anything after a first date. I recently had a first date, it was one of the best first dates i had ever been on. She seemed genuinely into me and we spent the entire night with each other just for her to get extremely distant and answering a text (because i like the 1:1 or 2:1 texting ratio) after hours or an entire day. I get the hint, but it’s ridiculous to put anyone through anxiety because you can’t seem to just be straight forward and say “i had an amazing time, i just don’t know if i really see potential for a future between us.” I would be way better off seeing/hearing that and being like “alright, i appreciate the honesty and it was a great time, i wish you the best” rather than look like an idiot texting and waiting for any kind of response.

Thank you! It is completely cowardice of someone to ghost, it means they can’t handle open communication and that is one of the most important aspects of a healthy adult relationship. So if anyone gets ghosted, consider it a huge bullet dodged and move on to find someone better. As much as it sucks to be ghosted, it is a blessing. I’m going through a ghosting situation myself, and i am at the point in my adulthood where it just feels like i wasted my time getting to know someone for a couple of months.
I’ve been ghosted several times. The worse was after a 9 MONTH relationship. Just don’t do it.
I've been ghosted. it hurts
You don't need to list off reasons as to why but simply saying you don't want to talk anymore at least gives the other person a bit of closure.
@iisagoodsong if it were a long term relationship, i would agree. If its just a week of messaging and a date, ghost me, i dont need closure.
