Being ghosted is an all-too-common dating experience when somebody disappears off the face of the earth when initially you thought you had some chemistry or attraction. And let’s be honest, it seriously hurts.
If you’ve found yourself in such a situation, you might have reacted by seeking closure. Perhaps you were tempted to call and text the person who ghosted you, hoping to find out what went wrong and why they’re giving you the silent treatment. Perhaps you’ve found yourself stalking their social media accounts, tormenting yourself with evidence of the ghoster seemingly enjoying life or even a new relationship.
“Closure is overrated,” says dating expert Matthew Hussey. “We have to be prepared to move on quickly and find the next person because otherwise we dwell and we try to get answers we can’t possible get,” he says.
If that sounds easier said than done, follow Hussey’s three step approach.
