2. Talk to someone else
If you are all caught up on your to-do list, reach out to a friend. Vent about guys that ignore you or talk about anything else. Talking to someone will take your mind off of him as well.
3. Demand better
This isn’t technically ignoring him, but it can end the vicious cycle of ignoring each other until the end of time. Tell him how you feel. Whether he is ignoring you after dating for weeks or chatting online for a few days, tell him you won’t put up with being ignored.
Yes, that can come across as stuck-up, but you deserve better and you won’t get it unless you ask for it. Maybe he really is busy, but if he was ignoring you, at least now he’ll know that women deserve better.
4. Leave your phone
I know it can be difficult in this day and age to step away from your phone. I mean you probably go through withdrawals if you forget to take it into the bathroom with you. But ditching your phone for a while is not only healthy for the rest of your mind but guarantees you’ll ignore him right back.
No phone means no texting, DMing, or calling. Leave your phone upstairs on silent while you’re having dinner, reading, or watching TV.
5. Mute him on social media
You can go strong ignoring a guy that ignores you for hours, but then his face pops up on Snapchat or Instagram and bam, you are thinking of him again.
Well, you don’t have to block him to block him from your mind, but you can mute him. This way he won’t know you aren’t seeing his posts, but he won’t pop up in your feed out of the blue to mess up your confidence boost.
6. Turn off notifications
The same goes for texting. Guys who ignore you often reach out randomly when it is convenient for them only to once again ignore you after the conversation starts getting good.
So, to help yourself avoid answering right away, turn off notifications for your conversation. This way if he texts you, you’ll see it next time you reach for your phone, but won’t be notified right away. This way you’re ignoring him without even realizing it.
