It's okay if you don't feel like talking to the person on online dating apps. There could be a variety of reasons for this: maybe they don't make you feel comfortable, or you find another person more attractive, or maybe just the vibe doesn't match, and so on. We've all had the feeling that we shouldn't continue the conversation during online dating. However, ghosting someone is not the best course of action in this situation. There are several ways you can end a conversation with someone gracefully. All that is required is a sense of calm and courtesy. 

Explain Them The Reason

The best thing you can do right now is explain the situation to them. It's true, you don't have to explain yourself, but saying something is better than saying nothing at all. You may feel uncomfortable confronting the person, but stopping the conversation without saying anything might be quite difficult for the other person.  Just Imagine the discomfort and frustration of never knowing why you have been ghosted. 

If you're not sure how to express yourself or how to tell someone what you're feeling, here are some ideas to get you started.
