Without some level of personal or social accountability, the guy can disappear without getting any grief for it.
I won't go into long details, but with both guys, after awhile of dating, I guess they lost interest or something and just didn't tell me the truth. I'd much rather hear that then wonder if he's dead or alive or just a really big ***hole! NOT METhe 2 main reasons why people do the dissapearing act without even a hint :1) They think you are too sweet and don't really want to face your hurt feelings themselves. I'm a big girl, i've been through much worse then to have some guy tell me he's not into me. Its not like he's the only guy around and who the hell wants to be with someone who doesn't want to be with them???????Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. when infact they are doing just that like you said.people need to grow up and act like adults... I think people who simply disappear from the face of the earth and do not bother to tell the other person (and in some cases a significant other person) are copping out, and taking the cowards way out.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... not like they are 12 yrs old.i'd rather have a guy tell me he's not interested, than for me to wonder what happened or what i did wrong.. Maybe they think they are being easy on the other person by not telling the other person that they do not want to be with them and for that matter explaining why.
