I’m not sure if it is something about wanting what you can’t have or if it is just something we can’t help, but it can be hard to ignore a guy that ignores you. We deserve a guy who gives us his attention and enjoys talking to us, not one that ignores us. We have all been there. Whether it is full on ghosting, or a guy who only texts you when he needs or wants something, it sucks. But yet, we go along with it. Wouldn’t it be so much easier if we just know how to ignore a guy that ignores you, and get on with your life?
#1 Keep busy.
When you are busy, you aren’t thinking about who is or isn’t ignoring you. It isn’t about seeming like you don’t care, but actually not caring. Clearly, he isn’t bothered by the fact that he is ignoring you, so don’t let it bother you either.
Work on your passions, read a book, cook a new recipe, run errands, do laundry, or what have you. The more you do, the less you’ll think about him and reaching out. [Read: How to stop feeling sorry for yourself and move on]
#2 Talk to someone else.
If you are all caught up on your to-do list, reach out to a friend. Vent about guys that ignore you or talk about anything else. Talking to someone will take your mind off of him as well.
#3 Demand better.
This isn’t technically ignoring him, but it can end the vicious cycle of ignoring each other until the end of time. Tell him how you feel. Whether he is ignoring you after dating for weeks or chatting online for a few days, tell him you won’t put up with being ignored.
Yes, that can come across as stuck-up, but you deserve better and you won’t get it unless you ask for it. Maybe he really is busy, but if he was ignoring you, at least now he’ll know that women deserve better. [Read: Why did he stop texting you? 13 real reasons why]
#4 Leave your phone.
I know it can be difficult in this day and age to step away from your phone. I mean you probably go through withdrawals if you forget to take it into the bathroom with you. But ditching your phone for a while is not only healthy for the rest of your mind but guarantees you’ll ignore him right back.
No phone means no texting, DMing, or calling. Leave your phone upstairs on silent while you’re having dinner, reading, or watching TV.
#5 Find a new guy.
I don’t usually recommend a rebound, but if this guy is ignoring you, find a guy that won’t. And once you do it will be easier than ever to ignore the first guy.
