    How Often Should You Try To Get Their Attention?

    After the first time, it's common courtesy. After the second time it shows you care. After the third time, it shows you care a little bit too much. After the fourth time, you realize that shaving your name in their pet's fur might not have been a good idea after all...

    What If They Ignore You For The Wrong Reasons?

    Let's say they got the wrong idea about you, that happens... they turn you off, cut you out of their life, don't return your calls, emails and whatnot. You said something they took the wrong way... especially in a restricted form of communication like email or text. Well a...

    I HATE being ignored. Bottom line. It's one of my major pet peeves. If I want to be ignored..I will go out to a ******* bar by myself. I don't need people who are supposed to care about me ignoring me. Ignoring my e-mails, my texts, my phone calls or whatever. Or just...

    life; in fact always try to value them because big surprises come in small packages.

    Couldn't Care Less

    Not everyone is going to like me. That's just the way it is, and I don't take it personally. I've got too many things going on to worry about what other people think of me. If they like me...great. If they don't...next.

    The people who ignore me,

    don't deserve me. The people I ignore, I don't deserve them. We're all just so insecure that we need to know why people dislike us.

    I agree. I just find it hard to deal with

    because I'm not used to being ignored. Especially when it's someone that I interacted with daily. To watch them volunteeringly walk out of my life hurts. It's going to take some getting used to. I'll be ok eventually though.
