One of the trickiest aspects of dating is how do you end it with someone you’ve only gone out with once or twice.A recent question posed on Quora echoes these concerns: when it comes to casual dating, is silence better than rejection? When you just….stop…calling (or texting) — and basically disappear off the face of the earth.
Remember, at the end of the day, you can only change your own behavior — not your partner’s.
Yesterday morning I signed onto GChat and received the following message from a friend: “I officially got dumped by someone I wasn’t dating.” Whoo, boy.
Apparently, my friend had gone on two dates with a guy — fine dates! And then, out of nowhere, she gets a long, kindly-worded email from him explaining that things weren’t going to work out, but that she was “a nice girl,” etc etc.
Many people choose to simply let contact taper off.
However, others may feel they owe the person a conversation.
