You can even try ignoring man after being married. But the reason or result of using this relationship trick in different situations will yield varied results.

Giving Him Space

Men are forever complaining that women don't give them space in relationships. While this accusation might be justified sometimes, it is often exaggerated. So ignoring a man is a nice way to let him know that too much space in a relationship leads to 'distance' between the couple.


Playing Hard To Get

As we said before, women often ignore the guy who takes interest in them. It is a cliched feminine ploy to make the guy desperate.


Making Him Jealous

When you are in a relationship and you feel you are not getting enough indulgence from your boyfriend, ignoring him is a good way to make him jealous. When you start ignoring a man while going steady, he gets suspicious that may be you are not interested in him anymore.


Making Him Propose

Men are slightly slow when it comes to picking up hints especially when it comes to marriage. If you want him to pop the question soon, you should try ignoring him to make him insecure about you.


Getting Rid Of Him

Ignoring a man could also be a subtle hint that you actually don't want to be with him anymore. If you want to dump him, you can ignore him so that he gets the idea that you are going to dump him.


Showing You Are Angry

Suppose you had a huge fight and you want to let him know that he behaved like a prick, then silence and indifference is the best way to give him the message. He will understand that you are angry but cannot get into a direct confrontation.


Tit For Tat

All relationships have inertia. When you are a few years into a stable relationship, your guy might start ignoring without meaning to do so. If you confront him he will obviously not agree with you. So give him a taste of his own medicine by paying him a little heed.
