Has it ever happened that someone you’re dating suddenly just disappears? One fine day they simply stop responding to you no matter how hard you try. They cut off all communication or they simply block you or they just drop off the face of the earth. They leave you wondering what happened or what went wrong. Maybe they’re just really busy but is that all? No one can be too busy to inform their partner that they’ll be unavailable for a few days! They just leave you with no explanation and no communication. This is called ghosting. They disappear like a ghost and leave no sign or medium of communication.

This behavior is pretty common in today’s modern world. People run away from a relationship because they know that there won’t be any consequences and there is not much at stake there. Some people just cannot deal with confrontations and conflicts and emotions and running away seems like the only way out. People who resort to ghosting cannot handle change and emotions. But they leave you with too many questions and a void and no closure. Handling such a sensitive situation can be difficult. Here’s how you can deal with it.

1. It’s important to understand if you have actually been ghosted or if your partner is simply too busy. If they’ve disappeared for a day or two, it could simply be a busy time or maybe some major life event that could be keeping them from reaching out. Give them a deadline. If your partner doesn’t respond for say a week or two. They could be ghosting you.

2. Don’t blame yourself. It’s not your fault that they are too scared of dealing with issues.

3. Don’t beg and plead with them. Don’t try to reach out too much. They’re not worth losing your dignity over. Don’t keep texting and calling. Cut off all communications.

4. Don’t overthink and don’t get aggressive. There’s no point fretting and dwelling over it. It’s done and over. Let it go.

5. Don’t put up sad posts on your social media just to get their attention. It’s not worth it.

6. If they come back after a while and grovel, don’t get back with them. You do not want to be with someone who is so unreliable.
