31 Real Guys Reveal The Excruciatingly Petty Reasons Why They’ve Ghosted A Girl



Her style of texting was really annoying to me and I couldn’t handle it. She would use ellipses as if they were fancy periods and would end everything which could possibly be construed as a question with a question mark. Her use of emojis was also out of hand.

Part of me wonders if I’m really that much of a dick that I would give up on an attractive girl who was interested in me for something so stupid, but I don’t really regret it. Reading her texts would always piss me off.

I watch a lot of PBS and their breaks between programs are like minute long mini-fundraisers that end by thanking donors for making a contribution to the station with a simple “thank you”.

This girl, without fail, would say “you’re welcome” back to the screen…every…single…time. No donation.

Oh, and her smoke alarm was constantly chirping for new batteries.

Because when we were on a date I was doing EVERYTHING. At first it was okay, when you meet somebody who’s pretty good looking and funny and intelligent it takes a while to realize. And then one day it hit me like a brick through the window:

I picked where we met, when we met, I picked the bar we went to and every single decision was just met with a blank stare. Even a simple thing would be this purgatory of guesswork where I’d either have to guess what would be a hit or we’d go through this awful thing say at a bar like:

“Maybe you’d like an IPA?”
“eww I hate beer it’s gross!”
“Fine how about a cocktail?”
“I’m trying to cut down on sugar.”

The thing that did it was we were at dinner when the waiter came to take the order I realized I was expected to order for both of us without even having a discussion like this was the 1950s. I knew I couldn’t do this, I want a partner not a passenger.
