It's easy to assume when the guy who has been texting you every day suddenly ghosts, it's because he's found someone else. According to the men on reddit, however, it can be much more complicated than that. Here are 13 explanations guys gave for disappearing that go way beyond "I met someone new."

1. RandomUsername416 ghosted because he felt like he was doing all the work.

It began to feel like a chore.

She didn't seem interested in me like she used to.

I began to feel like texting her wasn't worth my time.

I decided I would respond to any text she sent but I would completely stop initiating conversation/questions (in part just so I could see what would happen) because it felt like I was doing it all. Haven't had a response since, and the above statements became more true than I wished...

2. Wakkajabba discovered too many smiley faces can cause a frownie.

Turns out I wasn't talking to her, I was just talking to her bank of emojis.

3. Jesstosterone got sick of the games.

When I don't get a text back for hours, but anytime we hang out the girls eyes are glued to her phone.

4. DabidoZ didn't want to compete for greatness.

I'll only stop texting if they stop taking interest, e.g one word answers or 'haha omg emoji' you can tell they're having a better conversation with someone else

5. DotaXLeague found a better use for his texting fingers.

I masturbated furiously and decided this was not someone I truly wanted to be talking to.

6. surnguy decided he wasn't a can for your conversation trash.

I did this for a year to a girl I like, but stopped because our conversation has gotten stale and it always circled around her and the shit that she likes to talk about, however, when it's MY turn to talk about myself and the shit that I like to talk about, not only would the enthusiasm drop it would be followed by one word replies. Not about that life mang

7. Not_Me_But_A_Friend stopped when he got a clue.

When the lust gives way to critical analysis of my chances.

8. CaptainShawerma became too busy celebrating Festivus.

Showmanship, George! When you see that you've reached a high-note, you walk out of there!

9. RemoteProvider was left with questions of his own.

Usually because they don't do anything to keep the conversation going. I shouldn't be the only one asking questions, etc.

10. My_Names_Jefff did not want to flirt with disaster.

Told me she wanted to be friends. She still wanted us to talk flirty because its fun. Just said fuck that

11. rossmosh85 has apparently done this before. A lot.

Lots of reasons:

Boring conversation

One sided conversation

You realize you're really not interested

Found someone more interesting

I'm an asshole

Some more unique ones:

Things are shit and I don't want to talk about it:

Shits getting real

General insecurity about the future

Things aren't progressing well or the way you want

I don't feel like chatting and then get guilty for not responding. Then I have to come up with some excuse and I don't want to so I avoid you.

I'm an asshole

My wife told me to stop
