To The Guy Who Decided To Block Me Because He Couldn't Confront His Own Feelings

I hope you realize what a mistake you made because you lost out on someone great.



Remember me? The girl you were talking to every day? The girl you told personal things to? The girl you called on the phone to ask her about her day? Yes, I'm still here, even though you decided to block me and ghost me out of nowhere.

I was blindsided, let me tell you. Everything was going great. You had planned for us to go get dinner and go mini golfing and you even sent me a Google calendar invite for it. You were telling me how excited you were to see me again (in all caps), too.

When we first hung out, I was really nervous, but I slowly started to feel more comfortable and we were laughing at each other's jokes and stories. You even said that your face hurt because you were smiling so much. Everything seemed to be going perfectly. I couldn't wait to go to sleep so I could wake up to your "Good morning" text messages again.

You see, I was really starting to like you. It did scare me a little bit, but I kept telling myself that this was a good thing and I shouldn't be scared of something great. Two days before our mini golfing date, everything was normal. You texted me in the morning and we had a conversation throughout the day. I updated you that I would for sure be able to go out with you to mini golf to which you responded, "Yayyyy!"

You were having a busy week with work and moving so I had asked if you were excited to move. I didn't receive a response, but I just thought it was because you were really tied up with things and that I would hear back from you in the morning.

Much to my dismay, I woke up to an email saying you canceled our date and that it was removed from my Google calendar. I checked my messages, no word from you. Something inside me told me to check Snapchat. Suddenly your name was gone and you were no longer on my friends' list. Blocked.

So, I go to Instagram. "User not found," but yet, I can still see your Instagram profile image and the number of posts you have even though it says, "No posts." Blocked.

At this point, I'm upset, angry, and I'm feeling stupid. Here I am thinking this could actually be a good guy for me and for once, this could work out. I decided to call you out and text you and say, "Is there a reason I'm blocked on social media and you canceled our date? If you're not interested, at least be honest." No answer, obviously.

I'm not sure what exactly your reasoning is to be treating me like this, but to me, it seems like you're running away from your feelings and decided blocking me would be the easiest solution. Or maybe you have a secret girlfriend and you don't want her to find out you're talking to someone else. Whatever the case may be, it sounds like you're a coward. What an immature thing to do. You don't get to smooth talk a girl you say you're into and then toss her to the side when you feel like you're scared, especially coming from a man who claims he respects women.

I'm not sure if you will ever see this, but if you do, I hope you have a really good apology.

I hope you realize what a mistake you made because you lost out on someone great.

I Went To Various Restaurants Comparing Phone Usage During Meals And The Results Aren't Very Appetizing

It's crushing basic human interaction.


Over the past 30 years, technology has developed in ways that have completely shifted the way we live our daily lives. For many years, it was rude to place elbows on the dinner table. Now – it is completely normal to incorporate cell phone usage at dinnertime. However, we felt that although this is a quite ordinary standard for humans in modern times. It is not a secret that human interaction has completely altered because of cellular devices.

Unfortunately, most of everyone is guilty of this action of sitting on their phones at the dinner table, rather than having a true human conversation with one another. I selected this project because it affects everyone in modern society. Considering everyone is guilty of this action under certain circumstances, I felt that I was able to withdraw from reality and look at the issue from a third perspective.

Also, I wanted to watch if there were any trends that needed to be identified or if the subjects were just completely random. Phones are damaging relationships in today's society. When the observational data was recorded, the data was presented that this is a truly sad epidemic.

I went to various restaurants and collected information based on various factors. When I was looking for data, I was targeting the following: age range, if people were in groups or by themselves, the time of day and what day, a formality of the restaurant, and whether they pulled their phone out and if there was a reaction from the other people at the table. As expected, this action is especially prominent with families and those in relationships, rather than those who are sitting by themselves.

According to two researchers, Elizabeth Dunn and Ryan Dwyer from the University of British Columbia in Canada say those who use their cell phones at the dinner table are less happy than those who do not. "You see people in restaurants all the time who are sitting across the table from each other, and instead of staring at each other, they're staring at their phones," says Dwyer. "We were really curious: Is it having an impact on people's social interactions, how much they're enjoying the time they're spending with other people?"

Cell phone usage at the dinner table causes extreme distractions and less engagement in social communication. It has become a true problem that needs to be addressed. I found that no matter the situation, whether someone was with their family or loved one, that they would place their phones of higher importance rather than actual human interaction.

It is quite an odd phenomenon because everybody hates the action of cell phones at the dinner table - so the ultimate question rises... why do we all continue to do it? The answer is still unknown. I truly believe that if people started calling each other out, this epidemic would slow down or come to a complete stop. Could you imagine a world where we actually interacted with each other at the dinner table? I sure would love to.
