    Someone starts a text conversation,

    Have some courtesy and reply to someone.

    My husband came out this morning. "There's coffee," I told him Silence. He kept walking. Not even a thank you. Sigh.

    I swear he is just messing with my mind.

    .. one moment he wants to talk to me, the next I don't hear from him and he doesn't respond to my texts. Why does he keep contacting me if he's not interested... ugh... wish I just knew either way. Either leave me the **** alone or actually make an effort to be a part of my life...

    I was leaving the gym this evening

    after my workout and was approaching the front desk heading toward the exit. These two guys were standing there, both employees, having a conversation, and as I was passing them I said, "Have a good one!" They were no more than a foot or two away... No reply/wave from either...

    with someone and then you don't hear from them.

    I hate when I message someone

    and due to their lack of concentration or interest they just "see" the message and it's really annoying how it is!

    I am not married to my cell phone by any means,

    but I happen to believe that out of respect, if someone takes the time to send you an electronic message, you should at least respond, even if its just to say "im busy at the moment, but I'll get back to you as soon as I can".That at least let's someone know that you care enough...

    What's the point of ignoring someone?

    It's so RUDE and INCONSIDERATE of that person's feelings!! If you really don't want to talk to them then just grow some balls and TELL THEM in a polite but firm manner and that person will leave you alone. You're only playing with their feelings and wasting precious time!

    the one thing I hate is being cut off.

    like it makes me mad. I could be talking to someone and a person comes out of no where and cuts my sentence to say something. that's one way to make me mad.

    If you don't wanna talk to me right now,

    just tell me. It's not that hard. I'd prefer it if you just told me "I'm not in the mood to talk right now.", rather than flat out ignore me.

    life. People assume that just because I'm an introvert I'm automatically anti-social, that I only like being alone. I do like being myself at times, like when I'm reading or busy with other things but I don't like being all alone. I feel this way whenever we go out with friends...

    I think being ignored is one of the worse feelings. I hate when I message my friends, and they don't answer, and it shows that they actually read the message. I hate when i'm talking to someone in person, and they just totally disregard what i'm saying, and it takes them forever...

    To me being ignored is the worst thing ever.

    I think ignoring someone is the most disrespectful thing anyone can do. To not acknowledge their existence. When you ignore someone you're telling them they don't matter, they are worthless. I believe the opposite of love is not hate but indifference. And when I get ignored I...
