Oh, that awful feeling in the pit of your stomach when a guy suddenly stops texting you. The frustration, confusion, and feelings of sorrow and self-pity. Although you can’t make him magically start texting you again, there are a few things you can do – and not do – to make things easier on yourself.

You were chatting it up with a guy and thought things were going just swell. Until… Yep, complete silence. Where did he go? Why did he stop texting? Was it something you said? Something you didn’t say? Did he find someone new? What’s going on here?

Better yet, what can you do about it?

The first thing you can do is stop going insane and driving yourself wild over why he’s not communicating with you anymore. Unfortunately, you might never find out why he stopped texting. It’s a real shame, but there are a lot of men out there who have no problems ghosting a woman without any explanation.

Right now you probably have a million thoughts and questions buzzing about your brain. You’re coming up with anything under the sun you can say or do to get a response from him. But before you go and do something you later wish you wouldn’t have done, take a look at this dos and don’ts guide for when a guy stops texting you. Get ready as our Irvine matchmakers show you how to handle the confusion and frustration of when a guy goes MIA on you.

1. Take a deep breath & calm down.

The last thing you want to do is fly off the handle and do something stupid – something you’ll later regret. No matter high your emotions are running right now – whether you’re angry, sad, or hurt – you don’t want to let your temper get the best of you and earn you that crazy woman label you always hear guys laughing about.

Give yourself some time to cool down by going for a walk, getting a hot bath, meeting up with friends, or reading a good book. Do anything you can to immediately take your mind off the situation at hand.

2. Reach out to good friends.

This is where your besties come to the rescue. It doesn’t matter if you’re hurt, confused, frustrated, angry, or seriously p’d off, let it all out because your gal pals got your back. Go ahead and do a little venting. And when your girlfriends chime in with their trash talk on him, and hopefully some sound advice, you’ll start feeling better in no time.

3. Let yourself feel sad for a while.

Okay, a while but not too long! You were crushing hardcore on this guy and suddenly lost him out of nowhere. Even though you weren’t dating, you still feel saddened from your loss. At the same time, you don’t feel you have the right to feel sad. But you’re wrong. You have the right to feel any emotions you want to feel, and it’s important you get them out so you can move on. So ahead and grab your favorite bottle of wine, your Chunky Monkey ice-cream, and your favorite rom-com and cry until you get it all out.

4. Keep yourself busy.

Since your cell phone is always in your hand, it’s kind of hard to keep from looking at it and wondering when he’s going to text. You’re clinging to hope he’ll soon pop up, all the while trying not to reach and text him yourself. In order to ease some of your temptation, you need to hide your phone – or at least get it out of sight.

If you want to forget about this guy, you need to distract yourself from constantly thinking about him. Hit up the gym, check out a yoga class, sign up for painting classes, or even check out the latest sales at your favorite boutiques. Do whatever you have to do to keep yourself from thinking about this inconsiderate jerk.

5. Snap out of it and do you.

Right along the lines of keeping yourself busy is keeping yourself in good spirits. Don’t stop living your life and being your happy-go-lucky self because this guy was too rude to give you an explanation of why he lost interest in you.

As matchmakers, we know that rejection hurts, but you can’t let it bring you down. Continue living your life and creating your own happiness. Call up your besties, pull out your sexiest dress, and hit the town for a night of dancing. Trust us, you’ll be feeling better in no time.
