If you've been in the dating game, you most likely have been ghosted and/or have ghosted someone. With dating apps presenting us with so many options to choose from, ghosting has become an extremely common practice for ending flings and situationships - but that doesn't make it any less awkward or, in some cases, hurtful. After all, there are a ton of better, more respectful ways to end something. Sometimes, the best thing you can do after you've been ghosted is acknowledge that it happened via a quick text for closure. Here are 45 messages you can send someone after they ghost you so that they know you know what happened.

Serious Ghosting Responses
Is everything all right? I noticed it's been a while since you responded.
Since I haven't heard from you in a while, I think I'm going to move on. For me, this has run its course.
I'm assuming you're no longer interested. While I would have liked to have been told this directly, I still wish you the best in your future dating pursuits.
I'm going out with friends tomorrow night. If you'd care to join, we'd love to have you. It would be great to see you again, if your schedule allows!
I saw this and thought of you [alongside a tweet, TikTok, picture, etc.].
I've really enjoyed getting to know you, but I don't think our communication styles align very well. I think I'm going to pursue someone who can be more responsive to me.
I am a little confused as to why you stopped talking to me. Would you want to let me know what went wrong? I understand if not.
If you're not a texter, would you prefer meeting up in person to chat?
I had so much fun the last time we hung out. Would you be interested in doing something again? I'm happy to plan something!
Are you OK? You haven't texted in a while, and I wanted to make sure you were doing all right.
If I'm being honest, this hot-and-cold communication style is very stressful for me. I think I'm going to move on.
I don't think I can pursue a relationship with someone who treats communicating with me like a hobby rather than a priority. I hope you understand.
I appreciate the time we've spent together and the memories we've created, but I'm going to end this, because our communication styles are not compatible.
I totally understand if you're not feeling this anymore, but I can't read your mind and would love some clarity on what went wrong, if you're willing to provide it.
I'm really hurt by the fact that you ghosted me. I have been very respectful to you, but I don't feel like you're being respectful to me. Therefore, I'm going to move on.
Based on our communication in the last few weeks, I think you and I are looking for different things. I want someone who will prioritize me and value my feelings, so I'm going to move on.
I know ghosting has become normal, but it still hurts. I won't be talking to you anymore.
Getting ghosted is not fun, and I hope the next person you talk to doesn't do it to you.
I feel like you're distancing yourself. There's no need for us to keep talking if you aren't feeling it anymore.
I think I deserve better than being left on read, so I'm going to move on in my dating journey.
Your communication skills make me think you're looking for something casual. I'm looking for something serious, so I think we should part ways.
I wish you'd considered my emotions before you decided to ghost me. It was rather hurtful. Goodbye.
