After that I vowed not to dodge texts and calls and I stuck to it, even when he was a Mr Persistent.I knew with the latter that my only option was to be direct rather than dodging and once I knew that I’d been direct, I was free to ignore any texts or calls after that.It doesn’t matter what the initial intentions are – not as if you know what the other person’s intentions are anyway – on the first date you’re either sleeping together or not.

Ghosting is especially rife in the early stages of dating because in a time where someone might juggle multiple contacts due to apps and websites, or where their heads are easily turned due to a plenty of fish in the sea mentality, some argue that surely they can’t be expected to break up with or at least give a heads-up to each person they date. And actually, it’s also fair to say that not everyone wants to hear back from every date that doesn’t work out.

A lot of the time, we can work things out for ourselves (if we were present rather than auditioning on the date).

It’s never been easier to be emotionally unavailable via maintaining all sorts of distant communication, and the fact that we have these options mean that those of us who feel the rejection particularly hard, can be inclined to keep up loose connections rather than face endings which means that if someone doesn’t respond, it messes with the picture in our head and activates an old wound.

Because they’re Mr/Miss Good Time so they’d rather give us a great time in the moment so that they feel OK about what they do next—disappear.

What was once explainable using a single digit binary code now requires the decimal system. Looking from the outside in, on the other hand, gives shape to the confusing and convoluted dating culture that we have created for ourselves.

Here are the more easily recognizable stages: Regardless of whether you met on the street, in a coffee shop, at your yoga class or in the park, the first date tallies up to one thing: either a successful or failed one-night stand.

You managed to black out sometime in the middle of it all and can’t figure out whether the person was the best or worst sex of your life. You have officially dubbed him/her, or have been dubbed, worthy of sexual pursuit. In this stage, it isn’t recommended that you refrain from calling the person or see him/her without drinking heavily or taking drugs – it may be awkward.

I mean, you’ve only been intimate a dozen times or so… This is the first stage when you actually matter to the person more than any other slab of meat would.

I hear from folks who didn’t hear back from a prospective date from Plenty of Fish or whatever, who they exchanged a few messages with and it seemed as if they had “so much in common”. If we feel that someone we haven’t met but who we felt interested in based on a profile or exchange of messages has ‘disappeared’, it is time for us to step back and be honest with ourselves about what is really going on because emotional responsibility dictates that we need to do our due diligence before we get emotionally invested and we have a duty of care to remain grounded. And we (and they) have to be adult enough to respect our own and their position. Conflict avoidant people who we have often convinced ourselves that things are ‘perfect’ and dismissed code amber and red alerts, are big time ghosters.

That means we can’t ‘end’ things even if it’s been brief and then lurk but also if we’re on the receiving end of it, we need to respect their position rather than demanding to know why or even asking for an exit interview (I kid you not). This means that staying grounded and being personally secure rather than coming from a place of, Am I about to be screwed over or abandoned?

Seriously, thinking that you’re owed a breakup or some lengthy discussion based on one or a few dates is like thinking that you’ve bought a house after viewing it a few times or that you have the job after doing three interviews. This stops us from being someone who is fast with words and getting into people’s pants but then who ‘suddenly’ isn’t feeling things. , lends us to not being involved with ambiguous, flashy, Fast Forwarding, Future Faking showboating types who want to soap us up with fantasy.
