Why is my boyfriend ignoring me?
A lot of the time when a man becomes turned off, or simply changes his mind about a woman he’s been seeing, rather than “man up” and tell her, he simply ghosts her and stops answering texts, messages and calls.
He takes the coward’s way out.
And you’re stuck wondering what happened. Did you do something? Did he find someone else?

This type usually fails in relationship after relationships and you can be sure that at some point he’ll reach out to you. Don’t be fooled by his pretending to ask for forgiveness. He kicked you to the curb in the worse possible way. Not it’s your turn to ghost him.
You are able to talk to him about what happened.
This is a start to getting “relationship closure”. How you handle the conversation and how he responds, and what he says, will tell you the kind of person he is and if he’s worth fighting for, to try again in your relationship.
Don’t show how hurt you are, don’t make him defensive, this is about you and how you respect yourself and he needs to do the same.
What you need to do next is…
