How can you turn things around with someone that’s ghosting you?

I agree with what others have said. I know we all need reasons and closure for ourselves, but most of the time, we can't trace back people's actions and reasonings back to them. In most cases, the individual who is ghosting has personal concerns that they must address on their own. In my case, the other person didn't want to have anything to do with conflicts. In other instances, the individual who is being ghosted may be to blame. In that instance, the individual who is ghosting may not feel compelled to communicate. Ghosting can hurt depending on who the person was to you, and what I can suggest is to maybe try giving them an ultimatum. As in, a phone call, a text message, or a message stating that if they don't communicate within a specific amount of time, you'll consider the relationship to be ended. This way, you've taken care of things on your end and can move on. This is something I've tried and it's worked for me. It made me feel a lot better. It takes some time, but it's a huge relief.

I guess when something is ghosting you, you should keep your distance. Whether someone whats to communicate or interact with you or not is not under your control. Forcing or following up with them will only make you even more frustrated. I would accept and move on. That is if s/he doesn't have any significant impact in how i live my day to day life.

If you're being ghosted, it's probably time to move on. People who ghost you, do it because they don't want to say their initial goodbyes. Or, they may not be interested in hanging out or speaking to you. Best advice I can give you here, is to just move on. If someone is ghosting you, it's because they either don't like you, don't want to talk to you, don't want to argue, etc. 

Ghosting usually means they're peacing out. It's kind of the easy way to cut contact with someone.

When someone does this, they want to avoid you. If you push more, they will only ghost more. Just let it go and move on. If they decide to come back around, make sure you are not so available. People that tend to do this behavior only think about themselves and their own interests anyways.

I don't think there is any point in trying to turn things around when you're ghosted. I personally think ghosting is a terrible thing. It is better just to let the other person know that you're not interested. So if you get ghosted, make one attempt to establish contact, just in case there is a reason why they've ghosted you and if you don't get a response, then let go.
