Reasons why a guy could be ignoring you…a must read for all ladies


If you feel or believe a guy you like is actually ignoring you, you need to ask yourself these three questions in the first place.

#1 Is he really ignoring you? Has he shown significant interest in you that leads you to believe he has feelings for you in the first place? Or were both of you just in a scenario where he had to spend time with you, and now that the moment has passed, he’s moved on with his own life?

#2 Why do you think he’s ignoring you? Did you notice any clear signs recently? Is it something you said? Focus on all the ways he’s ignoring you, and ask yourself if you’re sure you are being ignored. And try to recollect the time period when he started backing away from you.

#3 Does it matter? This is the most important part of it all. Of course, it hurts and annoys you that you’re being ignored by a guy you think is pretty special. But in the grand scheme of things, does it matter to you? Do you see this guy as an integral part of your future? And finally, is he worth the effort you’re putting into trying to understand why he’s ignoring you?

Do you really need to know why?

Sometimes, trying to understand why a guy is ignoring you is just not worth the effort. You could ask him, but in all probability *if he’s truly ignoring you*, he may just lie to you and pretend like everything’s normal. *while continuing to ignore you at the same time!*


So, the bottom line here is that you can never really know why he’s being distant for sure.

But here’s the catch, the reasons why a guy ignores a girl aren’t many. And unless this guy is from another planet, in all probability, you’ll know just why he’s choosing to pretend you don’t exist just by reading a few signs and making your own deductions


When a man ignores a woman, there’s a very good chance that it’s just one of these 20 reasons. Sometimes, it could be more than just one of these 20 reasons too. Now all you need to do is read these 20 signs and using the earlier questions, try to see where this guy fits in the scenario of the ignoring game.

#1 He’s losing interest in you slowly: He was infatuated by you when he first met you, but as time passed, he’s probably getting bored or has found something better to do.

#2 You misunderstood him: He isn’t interested in you in the first place. He never really liked you “that way” but you just misunderstood him and assumed he was in love with you.

#3 Light love: He’s more easy going about love, and takes it easy in the relationship. He probably doesn’t read fairy tales or romance novels, and doesn’t really think a relationship is that big of a deal just yet.

#4 Awkward! He doesn’t really like you, and feels too awkward to admit it. He’s flirted with you, but now his wise mind has convinced him that ignoring you is a better alternative to telling you that he’s not interested.

#5 The good life. He’s got something more exciting going on in his life, and he’s forgotten about you, at least at this point in time.

#6 Confusions. He’s confused about his feelings for you, and he’s decided that taking a step back and avoiding you for a while can give him the time he needs to make up his mind.

#7 Expectations. You think he ignores you if he calls you over the phone less than three times a day. He thinks speaking to each other once a day is being clingy! Both of you have different expectations from each other, and one of you ends up feeling ignored.

#8 Moral dilemma. He’s cheating on his girlfriend or wife with you, and as the noose gets tighter around his neck, he thinks walking away from you is the best thing he can do.

#9 He doesn’t care. He’s probably not ignoring you intentionally. He just doesn’t care enough about you to think about you or your opinions.

#10 Space. You’re too clingy and needy, and he just wants his space. And you think he’s ignoring you.

#11 Imbalanced love. You just love him more than he does. And no matter what you do, you’ll always be the one feeling miserable.

#12 The busy guy. He’s truly busy, and as much as he wants to spend time with you, he’s just got other priorities that need his time and attention.

#13 The love triangle. He’s started liking someone else, and you’re taking up less space in his thoughts.

#14 Not into you. He was never into you, and you’ve just been misreading the signs all the while.

#15 The honorable guy. He’s realized that you actually like him and he doesn’t want to lead you on.

#16 Priorities. Both of you have evolved over time. He has different priorities in life now, and you’ve just been dropped down a notch or two.

#17 You’re too easy.  Sometimes, a guy likes a good chase to know that a girl is worth it. And now that he’s snagged you easily, he doesn’t find wooing you or impressing you much of a challenge.

#18 Wandering eyes. He thinks the grass is greener on the other side. Even though he likes you and thinks you’re a very nice person, he thinks he can find someone better.

#19 The scary kind of love. He likes you too much, and it scares him. He thinks it’s better to ignore you now, than fall madly in love with you and get walked all over by you in future because he doesn’t believe you would love him back.

#20 He’s just a selfish guy. He’s used you, and now he’s over you. He probably hops from one girl to another. He sees no reason to stay in touch with you and pretend like he cares!

The above 20 points is not written to scare you or to make you feel sad about your relationship but to take note and make amendment when needed.
