5 sure signs you are about to be ghosted

Another talking stage has come to an end

Ghosting hurts people deeply [Datingscout]

If you are single right now then you know that the dating streets are rough and rugged. As you aspire to find love, you cannot avoid meeting new people and falling in love with them.

It felt really good for the first few weeks you got talking, you started to develop a romantic attachment to them then the energy shifts and they ghost you.

I like this definition by Infiniteembers, "When someone “ghosts” you, they disappear from your life by ending all communication with you suddenly and without warning."

Here are the signs you are about to be ghosted.

When you first met them, you were planning dates, chatting all day, phone calls and video calls were constant but now they barely have time for you.

They come up with many valid sounding reasons. “Work is hectic” “I am going through something” “My cat died”. Truth is if you are important they would have made time for you.

The first few days were full of conversations and you were enjoying their company but now you are struggling with the fact that they don’t want to talk to you anymore and you are desperate for it.

You want so badly to believe their excuses and you even make excuses for them.

They can go days without talking to you. You count every day in disbelief. Day one is gone and no word from them, day two, they haven't sent a message but they are constantly updating their status.

Late and short replies are a number one indication of a loss of interest in you especially when you consider how quickly they responded before.

You asked, ‘how are you?’ and you just got an ‘I’m fine’ response with no desire to keep the conversation going. It's all over.

If you are interested in someone you let them into your world.

When they do not let you know their thoughts, feelings or plans, then you know you are not important to them.

When you see these signs, it is the time for you to just take a good turn to the left and focus on yourself now, don’t go desperately seeking their attention.
