Stop texting them! Find someone else to text (friends, sister, brother). A person will want to know what you are doing when you start ignoring them. Trust me it's a good feeling when they want to know what you been up to ;)
You have to realize that you are worth someone's time and attention. It may not be that particular person that you'd like it to be, and if that's the case, it will feel a whole lot better to let it go, than constantly deal with the emotional stress of being rejected and essentially abused. The opposite of love is apathy. If a person doesn't care it can be much more damaging to continue to be in contact with them.
It really helps to delete their phone number. If you want to have it just in case that person texts you, then give the number to a really good friend so you won't feel tempted.
You texting them, fuels their ego. Just wait a while, they will probably text you. If not, you lost nothing.
It's so hard, I'm going through a similar thing. Just think of your self worth. Surely you are worth more to yourself than someone ignored.
If they are ignoring you then let them, its their loss. Text someone else often that you like talking to (and who actually enjoys replying) or distract yourself by keeping yourself busy, for example watch movies, read, exercise or get a job.
I would say the first thing is to erase the number to prevent you having easy access. Try this and if the other person reaches out to you afterwards then consider your options then.
If they're ignoring you, its best to first apologize if you've done something wrong, and if they still haven't replied, they're not worth your time
The best way to stop texting someone who is ignoring you is to simply stop. One should come to the realization that they are being ignored and move on. A person is only in control of their own actions. They have no control over what another person is going to do. So if someone is not willing to answer you the only power you have is to move on and stop texting that person.
Practice self-control. If are you feeling badly when they ignore your messages, you can think about that emotional response anytime you get the urge to text them & hopefully that will be enough to deter you. If you find your will power failing, you can always delete their number to remove the temptation.
Delete their number, look what triggers you to write them and find coping mechanisms. Find another outlet for your feelings, like writing a journal, drawing etc.
Block him/her or delete his/her number without memorizing it. Or just use pure will and tell yourself to stop, and just stop.
Turn off your phone.
I've struggled with the same problems. My best friend in middle school actually became popular overnight (one sleepover wrecked it all for us) and I was suddenly deemed not good enough. It might seem hard to let them go, but I speak from experience- if they're willing to ditch you, they're not worth it in the long run. I found better people now who truly care about me, and you will too. Keep that in mind whenever you feel the urge to text them, it's not worth your time. Hope this helps! -Madeleine
This saying applies to multiple people from ex-friends, ex-colleagues and ex-partners; "ex's are ex's for a reason". Remember all the bad times especially if they have been really horrific. You don't need those sort of people in your life. Find those who respect you and will always be there for you when they can.
You need to realize that if they are ignoring you then they probaly dont are aout you and you can do better
obsesive behavior, delete his number...if they dont want to talk to you they dont want! selfrespect darlying.
I get how you feel :( Unfortunately people are not alwaays as receptive of our company, love and care, as we are desperate for theirs. So I am happy you realize a person ignoring you should not get a text back. What helps me is to log off of the platform for a while (sometimes instagram, facebook). I also DELETE all the previous chat. That way I don't slip. I also find new people to talk with, because I want attention from the person, I go to another. but the best way know who you are you don't need them if they don't care for you. Good luck/.
Delete that someones number from your phone. In fact delete all contacts that you have with that person, yes it would be really difficult in the beginning for you but over time you will find other things to do to get your mind over contacting that person since you have no choice and you don't have the means too.
Depends on what platform you're on. I would delete their number or block the user. But after all, it also takes a lot of selfcontrol.
You could try blocking their number if that's what you really want between the two of you. Otherwise, just resist the urge to text.
