3. Stand Up for Yourself

No matter how hard you're shaken by his come back, you should stand up for yourself. Know your worth and what you want to do with him. Told him clearly and explicitly about what you want. If you want to give it a go for the second time, tell him what you expect from him. It's the same if you want to cut him off for good.

Ghosts usually reach you through text first. What's written there is the most important. Read and reread it over and over again until you fully understand what does it mean. Take time as long as you want, until you become sure about what you want and what you're going to do next.

5. Think About Your Feeling

But things could be irritating if all he says is "Hello" or "Hi". If he doesn't have any signs of boyfriend material you wish to have, then leave him for good.

6. Let Him Know What He's Done

If you have decided to response to him, take the opportunity to let him know about what he's done to you. So giving respons to him doesn't mean that you're taking him back. You can take this opportunity to find closure for yourself. Tell him how he has ghosted you all the time and how it hurt you.

7. Consider the Risk

The biggest question coming into your mind must be: "Will he ghost me again?" Taking him back is such a risky decision so you must consider this very carefully. Are you ready if the same thing happen again in the future? Or are you at least have the signs you are ready for a new relationship?

8. Take One Step at a Time

You finally come into decision to give it a try. Be very careful with every move you made and don't let the same thing happen again. You must prepare an umbrella before it's raining, preparing if he might ghost you again.
