My Boyfriend Ignores Me! What You Need to Do to Change This

in Boyfriend

My boyfriend ignores me. Most of us have said that at some point when we've been in a dating relationship. We don't want to say it, we're embarrassed to say it but unfortunately it's something we feel and we need to express it. When your man ignores you it can leave you feeling rejected and suspicious. Your mind starts wandering to thoughts about him cheating on you or falling out of love with you. In most cases there's nothing quite as sinister going on. If your guy is ignoring you, you need to get a clear understanding of why it's happening and then you can change it so he starts treating you the way you want to be treated.

What tends to happen in dating relationships is the couple reaches a point where they're both so comfortable with one another that one person begins to take the other for granted. That's happening now in your relationship. Your boyfriend feels so secure in your love for him, that he doesn't see any reason to go the extra mile to continue to try and make you happy. If you've been accepting of his neglecting you by not calling or not seeing you for days, he'll just see it as being okay and he'll continue to do it. Even if you get upset with him when he does ignore you, your actions are telling him that he can do it as long as he wants, because you'll still be sitting and waiting for him once he does decide to come back around.

A man will always get away with things in a relationship if the woman allows it to happen. Men test the relationship waters to see exactly how far they can push things sometimes. This is what is occurring when he's ignoring you. That's why you have to change your attitude towards this mistreatment right now.

Getting angry won't work. Trying to talk to him about it in a civilized way won't work. What will work is holding your head up high and ignoring him too. You're not going to be petty or childish with this and it's not a game. It's simply a reaction to his neglect of you.

The next time your boyfriend ignores you, turn off your phone and get out of the house. Go out with the people who do appreciate you like your friends or family. Go buy yourself something fun or extravagant. Or take a couple of days away to go on a hiking adventure. Do anything that will keep you from obsessing over him.

Your boyfriend is going to quickly notice that you're not chasing after him anymore. His ego will take a hit and his heart will be stung a bit. Then when he realizes he can't get in touch with you he'll be the one with all those sordid scenarios bouncing around in his head. Once you do call him back, you'll notice a much more caring and compassionate man on the other end of the phone. Sometimes you have to mirror his behavior to get him to treat you the way you want.
