It’s a common theme in contemporary dating, you’ve been talking, you’ve been on a date, and… they haven’t messaged you back. Have they just forgotten? Are they feeling anxious? Are they just not into you? I’ve written about this here.
But what’s the next step? You figure they’re not into you, what do you do now, to improve things best for you.
Here’s a few simple tips:
- Unfriend them on Facebook, unfollow them on Twitter, Instagram, etc.
- Turn off chat on Facebook.
- Delete the conversation thread on Facebook.
- Delete their number.
- Delete the conversation thread on SMS.
- Delete any emails you’ve exchanged.
The most important thing to do now – is what’s best for you. Seeing them on your newsfeed, or seeing that they’re active online, is just going to trigger a twinge of rejection.
By deleting their social media presence, they’re out of sight out of mind, and you begin to forget.
I’ve been rejected many times in the past. One particularly poignant heart break, I wrote about here.
The thing with all of these heartbreaks, is at the time it feels intense. These days, unless I’m actively trying to remember times I’ve been rejected, I don’t even think about them.
That’s the state you’re going for, not thinking of them, and to do that, delete the messages and unfollow them on social media.
