Why do people suddenly stop texting (Ghosting)?

Dear Sarah,

Why do people suddenly stop texting (Ghosting)?

It’s happened to me more than once now.

We are chatting away for weeks, all going well. Discussing meeting up then they disappear.

It really makes you feel low, you keep going over the conversations thinking what did I say wrong ?

Thank you .

I’ve never been in a relationship (serious or otherwise)

Dear Sarah,
I’m currently 22 going to be 23 very soon and I can help but feel like there’s something wrong with me. I’ve never been in a relationship (serious or otherwise) I’ve never had a fling or my first kiss or even been on a date.

It’s not like I don’t want to, all my family and friends around me are engaged or have partners and are always asking me if I’m seeing anyone, it’s getting to the point I just avoid gatherings as I know I’ll have to say ‘no’ and come up with some flimsy excuse.

When the real reason is I have no idea, It’s not from lack of trying, I just don’t seem to meet people or when I do I usually get overlooked. I’ve tried dating apps but haven’t got anywhere. It’s getting to the point were even I’m concerned, at this point even if I were to find someone I’ve never been on a date or kissed someone and I’m still a virgin would they think I was strange.

I really don’t know what else to try. Kind regards, An unwilling single.
