I dunno, I think she wasn't that attached to you to begin with if she just let it go after that. If she was attached to you, she would have made your life a bltch for ignoring her AND THEN breaking up with her until she either got in trouble or had an epiphany. Or perhaps she learned from her past relationships she really shouldn't let it go that far.
Your method was only successful because she wasn't heavily attached to you yet, and because she wasn't, the distance you implemented did help decrease the attachment. This method could actually backfire on you if you're not careful in the future.
If it were me, my BF's intentions to purposely ignore me would be the cause of my shitty behavior, unless I wasn't that into him. Of course, being honest is going to hurt and I'm not going to respond merrily, but that should be expected and normal. I'd rather him be prompt than string me along like a bltch.
The last guy I formed an attachment to, I kinda revealed shitty things about him on a forum we both frequented because he just abruptly stopped communicating with me with no evidence of empathy or apology. It wasn't slander, it was all factual, but it wasn't right and I wish I had controlled my emotions better. We're actually still friends now and play LoL together from time to time. I no longer feel anything for him at all and he doesn't hold what I had done against me.
Don't ever date me.
To be fair, I believe most, if not all, people on the planet are capable of extreme reactions if given the proper stimulus. Most people are only exempt from such behavior because they've never been presented the opportunity or haven't experienced the equation that formulates such behavior.

... That moment when you realized that your bath towel is covered in sawdust.
Haha yeah, we were a pretty terrible match. I was at a point of "anyone is better than no one" and settled. Like I said, anyone knows I'm definitely not that kind of person. My relationships tend to end with me high and dry because I was TOO accessible. But whatevs. It's oister solo time and I'm just gonna ride it out for a bit. If I end up a male cat lady, I'll be a cool one. LOL.
That last one turned my cynical bitterness up to 11. I'm burnt out on trying and focusing on my work grind. Not as fun but I gotta do it eventually :P
neglect and lack of communication
works well with non-crazy girlfriends too.
