why did he ghost me
Zodiac, Heartbreak

Poof, he's gone.

Ghosting is the worst. One minute you’re in a relationship or on the start to a relationship, and the next, he’s out of the picture without a text, message, or call to explain why.

When you have an official breakup you get to have all the drama, emotions, and closure that go with it. But ghosting is like a soft breakup with a bitter aftertaste; you think you’re not seeing each other anymore but you can’t be sure.

You could be hanging on for who knows how long waiting to see if he responds to any of your texts. It’s the hope that his phone died or he’s just been very busy that is the most hurtful. You don’t want to give up on something you thought had potential but you don’t want to look like an idiot either.

Why couldn't he just be a grown-up, invite you for coffee, and explain that it wasn't working for him? Was he afraid you’d cause a scene or did you matter so little to him that he couldn't spare the energy and time to break up with you?

Ghosting is rude, unkind, and a jackass thing to do. I’m not saying we all don’t do it but ghosting isn't the best way to handle this kind of situation. It’s too confusing and hurtful for the other person.

Think of how you’ve felt when it’s happened to you. You thought things were going great. You had fun together, you met his friends and family, and you’d even started making plans. Oh, how wrong you were.

You wonder "why did he ghost me?" and if there was anything you could have done to prevent it. Rather than go around in circles with yourself trying to figure out someone else’s motivations and reasons, let astrology help.

Here’s why men ghost women, based on their zodiac signs.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

He's always doing something and the truth is he didn't like you enough to make time for you. In his mind, he couldn't even spare a few minutes to let you off the hook so you could move on. Ghosting may have been a blessing because he can be confrontational and might say something that both of you would regret later. Just remind yourself that it was fun while it lasted and find someone who thinks you're special enough to put on the top of the to-do list.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

He ghosted you because you stood up to him and didn't blindly agree with everything he said. You were challenging to him and while he could respect it, it's not a quality that he looks for in a woman. He was probably too lazy to officially break up with you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

He ghosted you because he was no longer feeling the thrill of the chase and found someone new. Don't worry, it won't last long with the woman that followed you... or the one after that... or even the one after that. It's going to take him a long time to get bored with the chase and realize that he wants and needs something more.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

He thought that ghosting you would be less painful for him. Yes, you read that right. He likes to think that he's very sensitive and kind, but usually, that compassion and kindness is directed at himself. He thinks if he lets you know that he's not that into you in an open and honest fashion, you'll yell at him and make him feel bad and he's not into that either.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

His problem with you was that you commanded just as much if not more attention than he did. He wanted all the attention from everybody and that included you. He felt as if he had to compete with you for the spotlight and that you should have been content to be his number one fan.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

He thinks you're hot but that you're mentally not up to his level. Please insert eye roll here. He can be kind of a pompous jerk so don't take it too personally. He probably felt that you would have been devastated to not be around him anymore, learning from him by osmosis, so he ghosted you. Honestly, you can do better.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

He probably has been trying to come up with a peaceful, non-confrontational way to end things for months, you just didn't know it because he's so charming and likable. He most probably wants to date other people and didn't find you compelling enough to try to actually have a relationship with you. However, when he gets lonely some night, don't be surprised to get a text from him asking what's up.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

He ghosted you because he was afraid that if he got too close, he'd become obsessed. It's never halfway with a Scorpio — they're either passionately in love with you or they detest you. It's better that he just kind of drifted away, you wouldn't have enjoyed him being intensely into you

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

He doesn't do commitments, but you mentioned something about future plans and he was done. He figured ghosting was easiest for everyone (but especially him). It's no use reaching out to him for an explanation or an apology, he's already in the Lyft on the way to the airport.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

This will sound strange but you probably were too perfect for him. Were you able to see a future with him? Did you get along with his family and he yours? Did everything just seem to click into place? Capricorns are usually very logic and practical unless they're picking a partner. They're known for picking the most inappropriate partners, so since you weren't 30 years older than him and financially insolvent, he had to dump you. He ghosted you because he was spending his limited free time on finding someone completely unsuitable.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

He's extremely independent and felt that you were too possessive for him so he ghosted you. He hates scenes and big emotional displays, so for him, ghosting and disappearing from your life seemed to be the easiest option. You may actually be friends one day and laugh about what a jerk he was to ghost you but that's still some time away. You wouldn't have wanted to be around him if he was breaking up with you as you would find his cold and aloof attitude, chilling.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

He's not over his ex. Wait, I mean he's not over glorifying his ex with poetry, songs, paintings, and spoken word performances. She's his inspiration for his creative process. He didn't intend to ghost you he just forgot about you until it was too late to have handled things in a better, more honest way. But hey, once he realizes how he may have hurt you, he'll feel bad and then you'll be his muse.
