    Hi, asking about ghosting, does it happen a lot to people on online dating?
    I’d been speaking to the guy on pof, he was lovely and we were having a nice conversation and getting on well, messages going back and forth for a couple of days, then he suddenly stopped replying I didn’t think much of it but then thought it was a shame as we’d got on well, Today I thought I’d just message him saying hi, figured I’d got nothing to lose and if he didn’t reply fair enough (now I’m thinking I must have come across as desperate, when it was more that I’d liked him and we were getting on well, doesn’t happen every day, so why not see if it could be something?) and not only did he totally ignore me but I realised he’d blocked me!
    Now I do think he needs to grow up, it’s rude and immature. But did I do something wrong? Can’t help but feel a bit upset by it and confused. Knocked my confidence a bit.
    Do people think this happens a lot?
    Ta, clio

    You didn’t do anything wrong and unfortunately this does happen a lot. It is rude and it is immature but you haven’t really built any real connections with the person until you’ve met them in person. People do it for many reasons. Either way it’s not right but it’s the cowards way out in my opinion. I’m sorry. I hope you keep your head up and meet someone who will respect you!

    Yes this happens a lot, that guy is maybe already committed the time he blocked you, and is trying to avoid connecting to other woman. Well let’s say he deactivates his account by now.

    I agree with Kris – until you meet the person face to face it doesn’t carry as much weight. Still, it’s rude. Hang in there and keep your chin up!

    This happens all the time on dating websites. :Don’t take it personally.
