When it comes to the struggles of dating today, one study claims that getting ghosted is totally not your fault.

A study by eHarmony claims 64 percent of Australians were ghosted in the last year, and 51 percent admit they’ve ghosted someone else.

Having someone you’re interested in suddenly disappear without a trace can be disheartening, but the researchers behind the study say it’s not personal. Instead, their theory is a pretty obvious one: With dating apps and social media, there are just too many options out there.

“The research here and around the world shows there is a lot of dissatisfaction in the outcomes of many dating apps,” Nicole McInnes, Director of eHarmony Australia, told Cosmopolitan.

So… don’t hate the player, hate the game, I guess?
