I met a great guy on Desi Spark last month and we started chatting online every day. That progressed to talking over the phone – which was a first for me. I thought things were going extremely well but then he did a Houdini on me and vanished. I don't think I did anything wrong. What happened?
Dear Vanishing Act,
This is a situation we can all relate to -- online and offline. You did nothing wrong. It sounds like Houdini wanted to end the relationship but was too scared to deal with the situation so he vanished. Both men and women struggle with break-ups because they don't want to hurt the other person. Unfortunately a majority think that by disappearing their doing you a favor by sparing you any conflict but to be honest, I think their doing it to save themselves from the conflict.
The bottom line is that if anyone pulls a Houdini on you they aren't ready for a mature relationship because they haven't yet learnt how to openly communicate. I would count yourself lucky and move on because you deserve better!
