‘Ghosting’ is the absolute worst way for a guy to exit your life. I know from personal experience how bad this one can hurt. I was dating a guy for a few months. He was there one minute and gone the next. He stopped returning texts and completely disappeared. It was like the scene in Twilight: Breaking Dawn where Edward ghosts on Bella to protect her, and she sits by her window crying for months.
In my case he was just an asshole. He wasn’t protecting me, he was leaving me. Like Bella, I sat by my window and cried because I didn’t know what the fuck happened. Perhaps he was robbed, his phone stolen, and he was struck in the head and now had amnesia. I pictured him wandering around a hospital, trying to find me. Desperate, I checked his social media. He was alive and well!
The truth about ghosting is that you’re left without closure. It’s so much easier when a real man breaks up with you and tells you he doesn’t want to be with you. You can move on. If a dude disappears, you are stuck in purgatory waiting to hear something. Here are some tips on giving yourself closure when a man ghosts on you and your relationship.
