Doctor, Doctor, people keep ignoring me!


Have this pet hate! Hate being ignored. You know the one where you send a text and don't get a reply. Can make allowances when I'm ignored once, twice well maybe there's a good reason; but three times and, well, I honestly feel a bit hurt.

If I meet someone in the street and I say hello I would expect them to say hello back! If I kept saying hello and they kept ignoring me, I guess I'd just stop saying hello.

Strangers come in all shapes and sizes and some are nice and some not so nice.

Friends you tend to choose and like to think that friends for the most part are nice to each other. So it's easier to be hurt by a friend than by a stranger.

That could bring me on to the whole question of friends, good friends and acquaintances. Sometimes it's not that easy to spot the difference. But there's a whole other blog in that one.

I hate loosing friends. Hate loosing good friends. Good friends are hard to find. Just like a "good heart" as Fergal Sharkey would say.

If they really are a good friend, you're not gonna loose em. Hope you got a response in the end babe.

You're right, if she is a good friend we'll work it out; and if not then I'll be disappointed and hurt but I've coped with those emotions before.

Sometimes I think we're nicer to strangers than to the ones we love. Good blog!

Think maybe it just seems that way sometimes. Like I say it's easier for us to be hurt by our friends; maybe because we expect more from them or maybe because we expose ourselves so much to the people we love.

I have had people here say that they IM'd me on this site and I don't answer back. Well, I never fire up the IM on this site....and yet, somehow it always says that I'm on it. So, I guess I have inadvertantly done that....but I sure didn't mean to! Hope it wasn't you!

Not talking about AdultFriendFinder or IM. But I know you would never ignore me. You're one of the few people I know on blogland who always responds to every comment on her blog. I've never met you angel but just know you're kind, gentle and big-hearted. Wish I lived closer; suspect you'd be a great friend to have

we all hate to think we have been ignored...sometimes circumstances just get in the way...

We do all hate to be ignored. Remember someone I met once who was annoyed at one of her close friends who had been ignoring her messages. And you're right sometimes circumstances do get in the way. But then may we let them! maybe we can use that as as excuse! only one person can really answer that! The test is to reflect and consider whether all texts have been ignored or whether this person has managed to find the time to respond to some people.

Anyway HB it's no big deal. I've always found that words are easy (if not cheap), it's actions that usually reveal what a person really feels, thinks.
