So, you’ve been ghosted. It’s not a great feeling, is it? You thought you guys were finally hitting it off, you exchanged numbers, and then suddenly…, and then suddenly…he was just gone. No phone call, no text, no nothing. He just vanished into thin air.
They’ve ghosted you. It happens to the best of us, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating, does it?
Once my friend was dating this guy who ghosted her, and she called me, face all red, shouting, “Harman, I don’t know what’s worse, the fact that he ghosted me or the fact that he was terrible in bed.” And we laughed so hard on this for a full minute.
But just because he ghosted you doesn’t mean you have to take it lying down. There are ways to make him regret ghosting you and realize what a mistake he made. Like babe, look at you! How is it not the biggest mistake of his life, huh?
What To Do When A Guy Ghosts You
Look, it may seem impossible to make a guy regret ghosting you, but trust me, it’s totally doable, especially with all the rage inside you against him.
First things first, take some time to grieve and heal. Don’t let anyone rush you through the process, and don’t try to force yourself to be over it before you’re ready.
Once you’ve taken the necessary time for self-care, start living your best damn life without him. Show him (and all those around you) how amazing you are and what all he missed out on by ghosting you. Also, don’t forget to post on social media and talk to your mutual friends about how great your life is now that toxicity like him is gone!
And when the opportunity arises, stay calm and confident when confronting him about how his actions made you feel. Remember, he ghosted YOU; that is 100% on him and has nothing to do with how worthy or deserving of the love you are.
Don’t let him drag you down – lift yourself up and make that ghoster regret every second of his decision to walk away from such a queen like yourself. You got this, girl.
Now, if you want more tips on how to make a guy regret ghosting you, keep on reading, because let’s be real – he fuck*ng deserves it!
How to make a guy regret ghosting you
1. Stop responding to any of his texts or social media messages.
When someone ghosts you, the natural inclination is to want to reach out and confront them about their behavior. But resist that urge! The best thing you can do is nothing at all. Like it didn’t even affect you in the first place.
If he’s trying to get a reaction out of you by ignoring you, don’t give him the satisfaction. He doesn’t deserve your attention or your time. Just let him go and move on with your life.
2. Work on building up your confidence.
Ghosting is often a sign that the person doing the ghosting doesn’t have the confidence to deal with difficult situations or confrontations head-on. In order to make him regret his choice, you need to work on rebuilding your own confidence and sense of self-worth 10x times.
This not only will show him that you’re more powerful and strong-headed than him but will also make him feel insecure about missing out on a total boss babe like you!
I have seen girls dating guys who deliberately make her feel less about themselves because they (the guy) are not insecure in their bodies and soul. You do not need to give such guys care in the hair. Instead, work on building yourself even better.
3. Reframe how you think about the situation.
It can be tempting to view being ghosted as a personal rejection and take it very personally. But try to shift how you look at the situation instead and see it as an opportunity to grow stronger and learn from your experiences. Remember that there are plenty of other guys out there who will treat you with respect and value, so don’t let that jerk get even a second more of your attention.
4. Post about how glad you are that you dodged a bullet and how he was never good enough for you anyway.
Social media is such a boon when it comes to letting others know about your life. I mean, I’m not asking you to update everyone about any fake lifestyle you need to build. Just tell them how happy you are living your life, eating your stomach out, or partying the heck out of the night – which you really need to do to post about it! Hence, forgetting about it while relishing your life.
Letting him know how happy and fulfilled your life is without him will serve as a major blow to his pride and how much he’s missing out.
And even better, it shows how strong and confident you are – something any guy would be foolish to let go of. So next time a guy ghosts on you, drop the tears and anger and show him how amazing life is without him by posting about it on social media. Because who needs another jerk in our lives?
Girl, you got this!
5. Talk about how you’re meeting new people and having a great time without him.
The best revenge is getting better! If he’s thinking about how much he regrets ghosting you and how big of a mistake it was, let him in on how well you’re doing without him. Talk about all the amazing new people you’ve been meeting, how all of them are so nice and genuine and how much fun you’ve been having since he left.
By doing so, you’ll be able to move on with your head held high and enjoy all of the amazing things life has in store for you!
6. Spend time with your friends and family and tell them all about how he was such a jerk.
No matter what the situation is, I guarantee that your friends and family will have your back. If you wanna take out that rage and anger about him, go to a friend and talk about your feelings. Shout, cry, howl.
But once you’re done, forget about him for real. I know it’s easier said than done but try to stay busy because, babe, that guy is not gonna pay the bills!
It’ll make you feel better, forget him quicker, and move on beautifully. And yes, telling others about how big of a jerk he was always feels satisfying. Hush, back bitching about jerks is my personal stress reliever!
7. Reach out to other guys.
It can be scary to put yourself back out there after getting ghosted, but it’s also a great way to show the guy how much you’ve moved on. Join dating apps or sites and start meeting new people. Not only will you get over your ghoster faster this way, but you’ll also be showing him how attractive and desirable you really are – his big mistake!
8. Get revenge by dating someone even better than them.
If you really want to make a guy regret ghosting you, then find someone new and move on with your life. Show him that there are other better fish in the sea and that he’s not the only one who can make you happy, not that he did if you’re here.
Once he sees that you’ve moved on, he’ll realize what he lost and kick himself for letting you go. Ha, how about some kick in the as* Jon?
9. Block him on all social media platforms and make sure he can’t contact you in any way.
Okay, I’m all about blocking, but I also like showing off a bit. So this I recommend when you’ve shown off your happy little life on social media.
But if you didn’t get a chance to, and if he already blocked you on, say, WhatsApp, go block him on Instagram, Snapchat, call, email, and tinder anywhere and everywhere.
You’ve got to put your foot forward, too, and let him know how aggravated you are and that he’s the last person you need right now!
10. Refuse to be his friend anymore, and make sure all your mutual friends know what he did to you.
If you were close to him, then it sucks how this ended. But the only thing that can help is cutting all ties with him and making sure everyone knows how much of a slime he was.
Talk to his friends, females especially, post on social media where your mutuals are added, and let the world know.
No one deserves to be ghosted, but if you’re going to get ghosted, make sure that the person who did it regrets it and knows how much of a jerk they really were. Whether it’s through revenge, blocking him everywhere, or getting over it and moving on with your life, make sure you show the guy how strong and fearless you are in this tough situation. Because at the end of the day, he’ll regret ghosting you no matter what – gosh, have you seen yourself?
11. Spoil yourself with a new outfit, haircut, or trip and post about it on social media.
You deserve to feel good and look amazing after getting ghosted, so why not treat yourself the way you should? Buy that expensive dress that you’ve been eyeing for ages or book a weekend getaway at a fancy hotel.
Whatever it is, make sure that you’re pampering yourself because girl, you freaking deserve to be treated like a queen! If you won’t do that to you, how can you expect someone else to do that, huh?
12. Do not talk to him when he returns back
He ghosted you for no reason, and now it’s your time to turn the tables. If he pulls up ‘ghoster returns,’ which is highly rare, by the way, unless he had a genuinely good reason, which is also pretty rare, make him regret it hard.
Do not give him a second of attention. I know it could be pretty challenging, but you have to make him realize at least 10% of what you went through.
Keep a record of all the times that he’s done something shady or wrong in your relationship, so when he comes back and wants to start up again, you can show him how horrible of a person he is.
13. Ghost him too!
If someone ghosts you, don’t take it lying down. Ghost them back! It’s the perfect way to make them realize what a blunder they made. Avoid any places where you might run into him, and tell your friends not to let him anywhere near you, either.
Change your phone number and social media accounts so he can’t contact you that way. Block him from all of your online platforms.
14. Act as if nothing happened and continue on with your life like normal.
At the end of the day, you need to focus on yourself and how to move on with your life. So while it might be tempting to get revenge or make him regret ghosting you, ultimately, all that will do is drag you down.
If I were you, I’d show him through little ways but won’t put all of my energy into him after he’s gone.
Instead, act as if nothing happened and continue living your life like normal. This will show him how strong and fearless you are and how little of a role he plays in your life. And trust me, that’s exactly how he’ll regret ghosting you – by seeing how well you’ve moved on without him!
15. Ignore them and act like they don’t exist, like seriously!
You know what, when you come across them in a mall or grocery shop, act like what, I can’t remember, who are you again? Or if they try to say Hi, ignore them at first and then say Oh, I didn’t really hear you as you’d say to a stranger. Haha, burn!!
16. Get On With Your Life
One of the best ways to make someone regret ghosting you is to show them that you’re doing just fine without them. Go out with your friends, try new things, and live your life to the fullest. Let him see that you don’t need him in order to be happy—you’re perfectly capable of being happy all on your own. He’ll start to realize what he’s missing out on and regret his decision to ghost you.
Okay, I get it, but how do I deal with being ghosted? How do I move on?
1. Don’t take it personally.
The first step in dealing with being ghosted is not to take it personally. I know that’s easier said than done, but try to remember that it’s not about you. The person who ghosted you is likely struggling with their own issues and insecurities, and they’re taking the easy way out by simply disappearing. It has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. So try not to take it to heart.
2. Reach out if you want closure.
If you’re looking for closure, reach out to the person who ghosted you and ask for an explanation. Chances are they won’t respond, but at least you’ll have tried. And who knows? Maybe they’ll appreciate your honesty and courage in reaching out, and they’ll actually give you the closure you’re looking for. But even if they don’t, at least you tried.
3. Focus on the positive.
It’s easy to dwell on the negative when you’ve been ghosted, but try to focus on the positive instead. Just try. Remember all the other people in your life who love and support you, and focus on spending time with them instead of dwelling on the person who ghosted you. Also, remember that there is plenty of fish in the sea! You will find someone else who appreciates and values you—ghosting is not a reflection of your worth as a person.
Do guys return after ghosting?
Girl, it really depends. Some guys just genuinely lose interest or change their minds, and there’s nothing you can do about it. And then there are those sneaky ones who might come crawling back for a second chance after realizing that they fucked up by ghosting in the first place.
But listen, if a guy ghosts you once, chances are he’ll do it again. It’s not worth your time or energy to wait around and see if he comes back to you. Until…you think he’s the love of your life.
Again, if he truly is, why would he put you in a situation like this?
Do yourself a favor and move on to someone who will actually treat you with the respect and communication that you deserve. Ghosting is never okay and deserving of a second chance. You deserve better, boo; go find it!
Do men regret ghosting?
Honestly, it depends on the person. Some men might not give it a second thought once they’ve achieved their goal of ending things with minimal hassle, a.k.a ghosting you successfully. Others may feel guilty about their actions and genuinely regret ghosting someone. So they’ll come back sooner or later and apologize, which makes them just a little nice.
However, it’s important to remember that no matter how much regret someone may or may not feel, the result is still the same – ghosting is never an okay way to handle a situation. It’s important to communicate honestly and respectfully, even if it means difficult conversations and sometimes angry fights.
That being said, if you find yourself on the receiving end of a ghosting experience, don’t waste your time and energy waiting for an apology that may never even come. Do what’s best for you and move on from that toxic relationship.
final thoughts on how to make a guy regret ghosting you
Ultimately, if you want to make a guy regret ghosting you, you need to take decisive action and refuse to let him get away with it. By cutting off all contact with him, posting about how happy you are now that he’s gone, blocking him on social media, and refusing to be his friend anymore, you can show him how serious you are about moving on without him.
And by spoiling yourself and enjoying life without him in the picture, you’ll prove that he is not worth your time or effort. So don’t let a guy get away with ghosting you – stand up for yourself and move on stronger than ever!
