Have you ever left without saying goodbye?

I hate saying goodbye, so I usually just sneak off (even in relationships)

No, I try not to do that. I think it’s cruel. How would you feel if someone did that to you?

Where I come from there is a word for that..jerky… aka intimacy issues. Might want to look into that.

After my very difficult first marriage imploded and upon seperating from my first wife, there were no goodbyes to be had. It was mostly animosity, hurt feelings, and pain. It’s an experience that I’ve never forgotten and something I never want to happen again with anyone else (not saying goodbye).

Like @Likeradar mentioned above, it can be cruel (and painful too) and it should be completely avoided if possible, in my opinion.

Yes. I left a job after 8 years without telling anyone but my boss that I was going. On the last day I carried home my potted plant and a few personal things and said good-night as usual, and no one was the wiser. I have always regretted that. I didn’t want a sendoff party and thought I was just avoiding awkwardness, but I later realized it was really very selfish, disrespectful, and unkind. There was no way to make amends. I moved out of the area within the week and never saw them again.

I don’t like saying goodbye. But if it’s really goodbye and not see you next time, I’ll say goodbye for the closure, even if it’s hard to do.

I agree with chasethestars.

If that person did something that left me speechless ill just go away and never say anything, i have no need to. Especially to ex’s.

Hey Triipple
If you are left speechless, then wouldn’t it be good to have a conversation about what happened so you can both move on without anger?

Lol sometimes girls do things that you rather do something else then talk it out if you know what im saying, sometimes its better to just walk away.
