When someone ignores you

November 4, 2009 4:00pm CST
It generally means they don't want to talk to you. Or did I miss something and it doesn't mean that anymore? Do you get cross when people don't get the message? When was the last time you ignored someone? Or someone ignored you? What did you do about it?

My wife and daughter insist that I ignore them all the time Usually this happens when I am in another room and do not hear what they said then they talk loudly (so I can hear) and say I am ignoring them If people ignore me then I assume they do not wish to talk with me and I just let it go. Not a problem for me.

I can hear just fine, I just generally have the television on and I'm listening to that instead of the conversation in the other room. Sometimes I ask them what they want and they tell me they weren't talking to me so after that I ignore them and they wonder why

Being ignored sucks. But nowadays it doesn't seem to be the simple case. I've found that people get ignored when they make people feel things "that they aren't supposed to feel" or when they are more interested in you than they are comfortable being? I dunno, but I live in Texas right now, and sometimes people I talk to (from home in NY), all of the sudden stop. I'm friendly, and honest, so I'm not sure what the deal is... but sometimes they disappear.. and then show up talking about missing me...blah blah blah I dunno, usually I assume they are in a relationship that they aren't being honest with themselves about, and I don't think it's me. You can only do so much to make someone happy, and if they ignore you, there are 10 others who won't.

Some times when I feel that some one is ignoring me I do not talk with that person util that person come and talk with me. I never ignore anyone.

If I'm ignored then I'll go on with my life. I wouldn't insist myself of talking to a person who keeps ignoring me. Sometimes I would accidentally ignore someone but I see to it that the next time I meet this person, I would apologize. But others wouldn't accept it thus friendship starts to become bitter.

I would agree to you guys, being ignored really sucks. I felt it a lot of times already and since it's hard to push myself to that person what i do is just ignore them as well.
