After 3 dates dating
“It doesn't have to be framed as a breakup,” says Davila.“It can be something more like, 'I've enjoyed hanging out with you, but I'm realising that it's not what I want going forward.I don't know if you feel the same way, but I figured I'd let you know so that we can both move on.'” And if in doubt, Davila says a short casual text is better than nothing.“For the ghoster, it's a sign that they are avoiding dealing with important feelings and fears,” Davila explains.
“When we don't deal with our fears, we don't learn to be appropriately assertive, which is what is needed for a break-up.
“We also don't learn how to treat others with kindness and compassion, which is also needed for a breakup.” And the person on the receiving end can be left feeling “confused and uncertain” which may knock their self-esteem for future relationships.
