I Hate Being Ignored

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 10,157 People

    I hate when this happens.

    Everyone needs some type of daily social interaction, and it hurts to the core when we're ignored by others. Especially when we've gotten attached to them.

    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!

    Honestly, I ******* hate being ignored.

    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...

    I'll be talking to my mother

    and I'll ask her a question and she'll just turn around and start walking away without answering the question. I know that her hearing is bad, so I'll ask her if she heard me. She frequently says that she heard me, but didn't understand what I said. If she didn't understand me...

    It sucks when you meet someone on here

    and hit it off. You chat on here for a bit, private messaging each other. Soon you take it off of EP and start texting each other. You send each other pics and find each other attractive. Next thing you know you're swapping naughty pics and texts. You're planning on having some...

    As I see it. To be ignored can be

    because of 2 different things... 1. U have hurt someone's feelings and that person then ignores u, plays cold. This way is not acceptable in no way. It's childish and disrespectful. Grow up and talk with your friend. How would any relationship work without communication...

    I hate it when I send someone a message

    and they read it and don't even try to get back to me, or just being ignored in general.

    When people ignore you

    I must be so difficult to talk to. All I wanted was for him to just listen and not get defensive. I was bitching about something and nothing to do with him. I was just letting out frustrations by talking it out and he tells me to stop. I'm like what why? He claimed I was...

    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.

    know something but won't involve me in a conversation. It is so darn rude. She will be talking to my dad about something and I am there. She will only look at him when talking and expect him to answer. If I say anything I am ignored like I am not there. She does this slot. I...

    on purpose. I tried talking to a friend all day yesterday. Sent them 4 messages - and each one said it was read. So I send two angry face emojis - and I get a reply - "is there something wrong?" and I said - "not really. Just thought you were ignoring me all day." And he tells...

    People who know me well know I hate being ignored. It's not a narcissitic thing by any means. I don't feel that I am God's gift to anyone or that anyone owes it to me to pay attention to me at all times. I don't expect much out of any of my friends....just be there for me, share...

    I've always had this problem... Last year I invited 20 people to my birthday party, and not a single person came... So I rescheduled, and the morning of the party, one by one, I received 20 cancellations. There's a man I've been in love with for three years. He sends me...

    I was ignored a lot as a kid.

    Today as an adult, I really, really hate being ignored. Sure, sometimes people can't always get back to you right away. That's fine! But if someone can't or doesn't want to talk, is it so difficult to say "can't talk right now!" ? When I know that someone is deliberately...
