I Hate When People Leave Without Saying Goodbye

    I hate when people say they will stay in touch

    or still want to be friends, then you never hear from them again. You don't need to say that just to be nice. Be honest and say you want no further contact if that's really the case.

    It really does hurt. Especially the ones

    where you've talked nearly every day for months on end and they all of a sudden leave. You learn to get through it and you dont let it affect future relationships/friendships. At least i don't.

    I've had 4 people recently just delete their

    profiles without saying goodbye. Very disheartening when you think that you mean something to someone and they do this. At least have the decency to say goodbye.

    You have to say good bye

    because you never know when you'll see them again, and I always hug when I say goodbye :)

    In the last two years I've had 5 people leave my life with no goodbye, no responses to any of my attempts to communicate. I haven't gotten any explanations as to why but I'm starting to think its me. I never had this problem until I moved to Chicago. I can't seem to keep anyone...

    I know this is just another online realm,

    but common courtesy should still apply. After 3 months of consistent conversation with someone, just up and leaving is rude...even if we didn't know each other in the real world. a simple goodbye would have been suffice.

    I hate myself for not saying goodbye to my mom

    before she died. The school always holds me back they refused me the afternoon off after I received a call saying she was taking a turn for the worse, I just wanted to go and see her at the hospital, when I got out of school, my dad told me she died that afternoon.

    about her. Though you are not my last love, you were my first. I'll never forget you leaving, mostly as my friend. Can't even remember the last time we talked. I hear you're doing well. I don't know what happened. I don't know why you left, without saying goodbye
