  1. “When your husband ignores you, no matter if it’s all the time or just after arguments, he is trying to avoid and run away from a problem instead of dealing with it and solving it.”

    This one makes no sense. Sometimes we ignore our wife because it’s a repetitive issue that we’ve tried to resolve multiple times and just became fed up with getting pushed back every-damn-time!

  2. There’s never an us in the first place. But why did you said that you liked me?
    We both like each other but he doesn’t like to put to be committed and keep being friends with everyone.
    Please don’t make everyone feel there so special to the point that they’ll end up falling for you.
    I just missed you. I missed how I can reveal my inner self to you. I don’t know if you can remember me too, but if you do, remember that I always liked you.

  3. love is sometimes so scary…this is me, he would ignore my calls n texts and now blocked me…still healing n learning to love myself.

    • Yes this happens to people who care a bit too much for others…people just tend to take advantage and finally leave behind a black hole…it is we who have to gather that strength and cope with our situation and grow because we really dont deserve to be maltreated by some wretched fellow to satiate their ego…you would also learn this eventually and be a much better version…

    • Love urself in love with urself we don’t need someone to be happy! Happiness is inside of Us n all around Us ♥️

      • Everything is temporary don’t get attached✨Just follow with the moment and be happy✌️ ka answer

  4. We’ve been together so much in love for 6 years but suddenly when she went for further studies in city she has started ignoring me n got a new phone replacing the old one I got her years ago, now we live nearby but she doesn’t reply to what I wrote to her, I’m confused becoz she never like another boys just me. I don’t know what to do….

  5. My boyfriend stopped calling and texting me though the last time I called him,the way he responded hurts my feeling.
    Since then he hasn’t call or text and I’ve not call him either but we did not have a fright or any misunderstanding.
    I’m heart broken

  6. Expecting something from loved ones is a hope but gaining without any intimation is love
    Dont wait for something when the time comes it happens…..

  7. I am in a two year relationship. We were long distance for a year in total and we worked it out quite well. Now we are not separated anymore, we live in the same town, but he now feels as if his attention towards me is never enough, because i missed our time together. During that year on and off, we saw each other once a month. I really want some psihical attention but he sees it as a task he has to fulfill not as a desire like i do. I feel cornered, i made him believe its like that, i feel neglected even though he is giving me attention. But when he tells me he doesnt want to go out of the house or that he dislikes when i ask for attention that its giving him pressure, i grow depressed.

  8. I’m not sad or unhappy when you ignore me, it just becomes worse when I remember the times when we were together.

  9. All I can say is thank you, I’m going to share this with my daughter, She tried for many years to get his attention, suggested on going for couples therapy. He choose to ignore her. Would go silent for days weeks, it became the normal in his eyes, but my daughter was hurting bad, I insisted she stay in the relationship for the sake of my grandson, not taking her emptiness, sad, hurting heart into consideration. I’m sorry …

      • Every time we have a misunderstanding he stops communicating with me and goes offline for days, my worry is that does he really love me or maybe he has someone else? Thought he has started processing his documents so that he can relocate and quit his job

        • There’s no way I can tell if he has someone else, I guess it’s something you know in your gut. But when people fight, sometimes they distance themselves – whether they are at home together or in another place. This is a form of punishment. It doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love you, it means there are issues in your relationship that have to be solved.

    • Don’t stop believing in him sometimes the reality become different then imaginations. Let him miss you and I’m sure one he’ll realize that how important you’re to him
