Have you been hurt by a man who suddenly went cold on you after several months of dating? You thought you were in a relationship, and he did everything to show you that he was interested. But as soon as you made a request, expecting him to meet your emotional needs, he bailed without so much as a goodbye text?
The ghosting dating trend is becoming more common, and it’s a very painful experience because you’re left without the closure you need to move on. The pain of rejection creates confusion in your mind as you search for reasons for why a man who seemed to be genuinely interested in you would stop answering your calls and texts. You’re left wondering, “What’s wrong with me?”
I want to help you let go of the emotional pain of the past by helping you to understand why men ghost! I don’t usually repost other blogs, but this confession from a man who disappeared after 6 months of dating was just too insightful to withhold from you.
I pray you get some peace and come to understand that it’s not you. It’s never about you if a man can’t honor you enough to part ways with you through a conversation. It’s always about him.
Here’s his confession:
“I was reluctantly in a relationship for about 6 months. I say reluctantly because throughout our relationship I always had one foot out the door. Despite that, we spoke everyday, saw each other 3-4 times a week, actually went on dates, hung out with friends, and all the other normal relationship behaviors you’d expect. When we were approaching our 6th month together, she started asking the “What are we”question a bit more forcefully than before and I kept avoiding it until one day, I simply stopped responding to her calls, texts, and chats.
As for why I did it, it was mostly because I had an irrational fear that if I said the words “We’re in a relationship” I’d suddenly become unhappy, even though I had been monogamously dating her for 6 months. I didn’t understand exactly how I actually felt at the time, so instead of trying to talk it out, I ghosted.”
