Why does someone ghost you? There can be a lot of reasons. Take, for example, two persons who are in a serious relationship but eventually one of them lost interest or got bored of the other. This happens a lot. So to get away from that person will not attend to your phone calls and will block you in all social media accounts. Some might not even know that they had a breakup and still wait for the other person to call them. Moving on can be hard in these cases.

You don’t know the reason for the breakup and you might think that it’s your fault you had a breakup and you might be affected mentally. Take another example, where one person is always bullying or harassing the other person. In this case, ghosting is the best choice. As I said before, ghosting has both its advantages and disadvantages. In this situation, getting away from the person who bullies you as soon as possible is the right choice.

These are not the only reasons why a person might ghost others. Take long-distance relationships for example. Most long-distance relationships do not work. Why don’t they work? Because that person will go to a new place and meet new friends and who knows, he/she might start liking someone in the new place. These are not the only reasons for ghosting. Some of the reasons maybe jealousy, insecurity, suspicions, too much possessiveness, and so on. Getting over a breakup is hard but it is the only thing that will help you fix your life.

Why Someone Ghosts You After Losing Interest In You?

You may be in a relationship for 1 month or 1 year or even more than that. Being in a longer or serious relationship does not mean that you will never get ghosted. If they lose interest they will ghost you for sure. A relationship is a two-way street. Both should put equal effort to make it work.

One may lose interest in you for many reasons like, they met someone better than you, they are bored of you, they are too busy to even talk to you, they liked you before but hates you now and so on. Whatever may be the reason but ghosting can be pretty hard if the person on the receiving end is madly in love with you.

Advises, motivational quotes, solitude, and even friends nothing can heal them. They can only heal themselves with time. It is hard at first but when you come out of it you will feel about the time you have lost by shedding tears for the person who is not worth your tears. Lucky are those who take their relationship to the next level, marriage, and live happily ever after. This doesn’t happen often.

You cannot live your life happily and peacefully if you keep crying for someone who ghosted. Just remember that the person who left you did not even have the courtesy to tell the reason for the breakup. Another important thing everyone should keep in their mind after a breakup is that, it is not your fault. So please never blame yourself for other’s actions.


The main problem after being ghosted by someone is that you just can’t accept it. You just believe that he/she will call you back and you will keep waiting. Stop waiting for changes to happen automatically. Start doing the things you love which will help you take your mind off them.

Spend a lot of time with your friends because after a breakup some people prefer solitude which is not good mentally. Sharing your feelings with others can help you be free of stress. It feels like a burden off your chest. So stay strong and move on with your life.
