Your question was: Match.com Functionality?.
I've never done that because I was always too proud to let a guy know that I cared enough to be mad about him ghosting. I figured he could just think that I was too busy with dating (online dating with Match.com) other guys to really worry about.
I had to think about this one. I did do this once in college. It was my senior year and I was just about to graduate. I had been seeing this guy for awhile, but just couldn't see it lasting. Little things, like the way he chewed, drove me nuts. I got tired of thinking about it all and ended it. Just told him straight up. He handled it so much better than I thought he would. He did try to convince me to stay with him, but I couldn't. I realize now that I just wasn't ready to settle down. I had the world at my finger tips and I didn't want to settle down and marry a soon to be preacher. Nothing wrong with his choice of profession, but it wasn't for me. I wish I could have told him that back then. It would have some him some recovery time.
Only if we had some sort of relationship (thru Match.com) or commitment that I felt bound by regardless of his behavior. I was seeing a guy a while back and we'd agreed to be sexually monogamousbut then he started not calling me long periods of time and I wanted out. So because I'd made the agreement with him, I felt it was necessary of me to end it, even though his behavior indicated that he wasn't really interested in me. My word meant something to me, in other words, even though it would have been reasonable for me to move on without telling him I was doing so..
Not surprisingly, he came back and said he did want to make it work, blah, blah, blah, but by then I was done..
Yes, I have done that and men have thought I was playing a game of hard to get or coy or something. They would call back and try to ingratiate themselves and that is how I knew that they still didnt "get it" and take what I say seriously. The end result was a breakup of course...
