4 reasons he is ignoring you

30 April 2015, 15:37 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  I will be honest and admit it might have happened a couple of times to me too. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, no matter how beautiful you think you are there will be that someone or someones that do not think you are all that you think you are.

In my case it might have been one time, I was sitting with a friend of mine and we saw a particularly good looking man, I was the one with my tongue out she was less than concerned. On a dare, she told me to go and ask for that man’s number. After a couple of minutes which felt like hours, sweat dripping from my forehead, blurred vision and intense negotiation of what to say and how to sit… also how to smile (not too broad and look like the joker but serenely), off I went. At the end of that traumatizing experience, I had the number in hand and quickly started daydreaming of our date. I was very excited.

I should mention, it did not pan out and do you know, I ignored a particularly good looking man who looked normal and not clownish all in the name of being loyal to a man I had yet to go out on a first day with (mental donkey kick on my behind). I still regret that decision to this day because I lost out on a potentially good guy because I had just gotten a number from some other person. Female loyalty can be a crutch.

Side-note to you ladies, never do that to yourself. Until a man proves himself to you, you have the right to entertain that next man too.

So why did he ignore me after that, I called and we had a couple of very mundane two second discussions of how he was at work or the network was bad. I am a girl who quickly takes a hint and not look too desperate.

He was never really interested in the first place

This happens mostly when you are the woman and you approach the man because some men said, it is a turn on when a woman has the guts to approach you. At times, most times it does not work as you might know.

To save you embarrassment or an awkward conversation of him saying no, he just gave you the number or the card but planned not to entertain you. It is that simple. So stop sending 100 texts and calling 30 times a day and leaving voice messages. He is just not interested.

Lost Interest

It is bad when you put yourself 100% in something. You are convinced he is also legitimate. You flirt intensely, send each other very bad texts, you make plans on what you will do when you meet. That is the problem with phones because they took out all that intensity that used to be involved with the long wait. Waiting until you saw someone so that you can have an actual conversation.

When you keep talking about it over the phone at times it just wanes and interest is quickly lost. If you see the signs please read them and save yourself some agony.

You are the last person on his mind

People who are into you and having something with you will keep you at the forefront and if you are not first you are somewhere on their list. At which point, he will get to you. On the other hand, when you are going out of your way and he is not concerned it is simply because he does not care at all.

About you, what you want what you think, what you have been doing the whole day… he could care less!

People will ignore you when they are cheating

Maybe you called when the wife was around or texted while she was sat close by. Maybe you were that last minute state of confusion of him thinking whether he could pull it off without the wife finding out. Or maybe conscious thought came knocking. People who cheat will ignore you because at the end of it they realize you are not worth it or they simply cannot keep up with your demands.
