Being ignored is one of my pet peeves I guess. It annoys the life out of me. You can at least acknowledge someone when they go out of their way to acknowledge you... Just saying.

I will give you a hint... Um...your a smart woman I am sure you know where it happened. And as for the who, that should be easy for you to put together also.

If someone is ignoring you they have very poor manners. I don't let it bother me anymore. That just speaks to their character or the lack of character. I hope they teach their children differently, but who knows. Children learn from their parents, copy their parents, and want to be (usually) like their parents. I would rather concentrate on things I have some control over these days. I have control over myself and that's what I am concentrating on. Great discussion by the way.

You are absolutely right. It speaks of who they really are and why would I want anything to do with them when they ignore me? Good point, maybe I should just worry more about what I am doing and forget what others do because your right I have no control over them or their actions...

That is kind of rude for people to ignore you. Sometimes I think people are preoccupied with the everyday stresses of life and don't really pay attention. I know my daughter might be talking to me while I am concentrating on something else and I won't hear her, or I will hear but can't put what she says together because I'm not following. I'm not ignoring on purpose. I'm just concentrating on something else and my brain hasn't switched over to concentrate on what she is saying.

I agree with you, I think this person is always very busy so they had better things to do with their time than answer me. Lol, I have done that with my kids too. But I wasn't speaking to the person, it was on the computer.

How long do you give it before you assume that you are really being ignored? A minute, an hour, a day, a week or longer? Do you ever put your self in the other person's shoes? Why think immediately that the only reason is that they are ignoring you when it could be that disaster might have sturck? Like they might have lost their connection or cut themselves while getting ready for the party even? How about this person was dealing with everyone else and leaving you on a back burner until last so that they could spend more time involved with you with no disturbances? Remember too that as age increases things take longer to do Ah... it's hard when your crush gets crushed eh?

Oh hush, we already settled the matter! And I was being impatient I suppose...A little bit. I'm over it. Wants to spend more time with me? Who said that? Are you speaking for him? Not sure he would like that...

I am certain that he is quite capable of speaking for himself I was merely suggesting all of the options so that next time (if there is one) you can come back here and read them and then maybe, while you are reading, you will get what you were waiting for

Yes, why not...if someone says how are you? It is just normal to answer back. I am ok... Sometimes even i f you are not really ok. Trying not to be rude. Of course. The level of response depend on the level of how well you know the person... The safest. You can answer to be civil is you areok. It is. Really annoying if this person will not e ven look at you or smile back. Too bad and i am sure. You will pledge. And promise to yourself that it will be the last t ime you are going to greet this person. I agree with you arrgh. Suc annoying and rude people

I agree with you.Being ignored makes us feel as if we are worth nothing,as if are not entitled to be taken cre of or be heard.It makes us feel we are worthless.Any self respectful person would like to be physically hurt rather than being ignored.It is the greatest insult we may face.I would like to be either loved and respected or hated,but can't put up with the painful feeling of being ignored.

Yeah it is not a good feeling at all and it is very rude. I feel like we should be more respectful than ignoring people. Especially when I took the time out to say something nice and they ignored me...So not right...

yes i do that when i'm upset or disappointed in someone but don't know how to tell them in a mature way (something i'm still struggle with). some people have no second thoughts of blowing up in your face whether you deserve it or not, with or without people around. i tend to avoid and disappear.

Most of them don't love to be ignored especially in front of the public. I find it as a very bad habit. It is my hard luck to see such a habit in my life. So I don't feel such a emotion when as person is being ignored but I am well aware about it.

I hate it too. Unfortunately it happens more than I care to admit. I remember once a few years back I was in McDonald's one night. I was talking to someone I went to high school with when I happened to notice ANOTHER person I went to high school with (and graduated with). She was at the counter halfway turned around and kind of staring at me. So of course I waved at her. She stared a second or two longer, turned around, and completely ignored me. It is pretty annoying, isn't it?

It is annoying to be ignored. That was rude of her to completely ignore you like that. She could have at least waved back, I don't understand people like that...

Hi friend, you are right, no one likes to be ignored. Each and every person is having their own talents, skills and uniqueness. No one is superior to ignore others and we must avoid such kind of ignoring activities

Yup. I have been there and it is really annoying! When I was younger I thought people did this because they did not like me! Maybe some. did. Others did because I at one time i was very immature and really annoying myself!!!! At times my friends could not tolerate me! Now that doesn't happen as much! I have seen people do this at work. The reasons are people will act immature for dumb reasons or are so sick of someones endless complaining! I hope that ends at work soon! The whole kitchen staff is sick of this ones person's attitude!

It is super annoying and rude. Maybe this person doesn't like me but even if they don't they can at least acknowledge that I went out of my way to acknowledge them! Even if I don't like someone I will not ignore them, I might be short with them but I won't just ignore them. That is so annoying to me.

What I want to say in this connection is that if someone ignore you best things is that instead of getting upset you too ignored that person . If you also ignored such person then surely that person will realize how one person will feel when they ignored them

I also hate being ignored but I just accept the fact that the persons ignoring me don't like me personally so that is it. I will also ignore them. We can't force a person to like us.

So who is ignoring you. . . it certainly is not me. I am paying attention. . .see? But yes, I agree, it is pretty hateful to deliberately ignore people, and I can think of a couple that I would like to. On the other hand, I do try to communicate with people I do not want to annoy.

Think about it - denying someone your acknowledgement of their existence. Not saying something hurtful, just walking right by - that's the true opposite of love. Love and hate are akin in your investment in the situation.

Being ignored is very rude. People now days are very rude. THey aren't taught to be mannerly and/or respectful. It is sad. A person who doesn't acknowledge you when you take the time to do is a twit. They should be taught better at home. Manners used to mean something. Now a lack of them seems to be thought of as cool.
• Jacksonville, Florida

It is indeed. Your right that most people are not taught manners anymore. I don't know where the losing of respect came from but its terrible.

It used to be that kids grew up in multi generational homes. Grandparents made sure kids were taught to mind and to be mannerly and respectful. Not so anymore. Grandparents are shipped off and kids don't spend as much time with them.
