This is something I can’t stand…ghosting.
It happens a lot with online dating.
“I’m not interested in you anymore; but I hope you find what you are looking for.”
Is that too hard to say or to send in a text message? I’ve never understood why someone would rather ghost than communicate.
I would much rather be told that it isn’t going to work between us, than to sit around waiting for a response that may or may not even come.
Why is it always the ones I really like that do the ghosting? It’s never the guys that I couldn’t really care either way…unfair
I have gotten to the point where I don’t even bother texting anyone anymore, unless they are the one who initiated the conversation.
I have been ghosted so many times now that I don’t trust anyone anymore. Even when I tell people I can’t handle being ignored, due to anxiety and depression… they still end up doing exactly what I asked them not to do. I guess they do it then since they know that is the way to really get at me.
It’s very childish. I have recently decided that if someone can’t be mature or respect me enough to respond to me, then they don’t deserve a place in my life anyway; regardless of my feelings for them. I used to be that person who blew up their phone until I got a message back. These days I don’t have the energy for that.
Here’s to hoping that one day I find a man that cares about me enough to always respond.
