Online dating guys disappear
The most important thing to know about this, when it happens, is that it really isn’t you. People who do this are dealing with emotional issues or commitment phobias that began long before they started talking to you.
It gives them the feeling they are not accountable for their behavior and entitles them to be rude, crude and callous in their online communication.
And if he contacts you again in a few weeks, as is often the case, take it with a grain of salt and tell him that while you appreciate his reappearance, you're not willing to date someone who would disappear without a word.
Because if he did it once, he'll do it again, and possibly later into your dating life, once you feel more connected and bonded to him.
When the relationship has been strictly virtual, there can be other reasons for disappearing along with a lack of interest.
They meet someone else,get together and decide to pursue it and tell themselves they don’t owe an explanation to someone they haven’t even met.
As everyone knows, you treat people how you want to be treated; even if “everyone else texts” it doesn't mean you have to.
