    Was i correct in stopping contact ?

    There is a gentleman who has his evenings free and spends a lot of them at the bar. I asked him (via text) if he wanted to hang out with me any evening the coming up week. He responded “i will have to let you know.” I did not respond. The next day, he sent a pic indicating a particular sexual act but didn’t say yes or no. I did not respond. In the last 6 weeks, he has not been all that inclusive. All we do is text. I have seen him 3 times in 6 weeks (2 times at his place and once at the bar). The bar meetup only happened because i offered to buy the drinks. For the past 4 years, he lives with his “ex.” His “ex” was not at home when i was over there. I stopped contacting him. I have not heard from him either. Was i correct in stopping contact/ghosting ? I stopped contact because i took his response as a rejection.

    Whenever you’re unhappy it’s always healthy to move on.
    The fact that you’re wondering if you did the right thing tells me you really haven’t moved on.

    “I asked him (via text) if he wanted to hang out with me…”

    “The bar meetup only happened (because i offered to buy the drinks).”

    “I stopped contacting him. {I have not heard from him either}.”

    (Sound like he was never really into YOU.)

    Whenever you are the only one keeping something alive you’re setting yourself up to be hurt.
    In a world with over 7 Billion people rejection just means: NEXT!
