If a guy is a quality guy and cares about you enough and is even worth YOUR time to have around, yes he will eventually come around and start to "behave" if you ignore him. A lot of guys don't want women to know this because their ultimate power grab in this world is to keep women competing for them. It's like a game or a sport to them. But they won't take seriously any woman who seems like she "needs" him or pays him too much attention. It is absolutely true that ignoring a man is sometimes THE BEST thing you can do. They just don't want you to know it because then they lose some of their power and have to start putting in their fair share of effort. [ hollymaria's advice column | Ask hollymaria A Question ]
NatCanney answered Tuesday October 20 2009, 3:01 pm: Honestly..it works. this is how it works. first get him to like you dont just ignore him.. but get him to like you and dig you and feel you out. dont be clingy or needy! dont text him first nothing. but when you get into a fight or whatever with him and want to message him or whatever..DONT, STRAIGHT UP IGNORE HIM..you'll get him whipped in NO TIME!

Mackenzie answered Tuesday October 11 2005, 7:11 pm: Some males might think that, definitely. However, when asking some of my male friends this question for you, they all said that ignoring them would be a major turn off. I happen to agree. If a male were to ignore me, I'd be hurt, not intrigued. I just feel there are better ways to go about getting someone's attention than to completely disregard the fact that they're alive.

FunnyCide answered Tuesday October 11 2005, 5:30 pm: I guess it depends on the guy, because most guys I know pretty much hate it when girls play "hard to get," but some guys like it.
If I were to "ignore" my boyfriend, not answer his phone call or dodge questions, he would KNOW something is wrong. However, that is in a relationship.
Although, I was watching the Today Show and they had some authors of a book on the show. The author of the book said that when you're breaking up with a guy, to stay away from him, don't talk to him etc. for 60 days. That's kinda like a signal that you've turned away, you're giving him the cold shoulder etc. I think it's probably the same way for when you are trying to get a guy to like you, if you ignore them, they think you don't like them. But hey, what do I know? I'm just a girl. :D

Mercy_x_Me answered Tuesday October 11 2005, 4:45 pm: DEFINETLY. Seriously IGNORE what people say otherwise. Well, don't ignore. It's good to hear both sides of opinions, but I know it works for sure. For example; if you're ALL over a guy and giggling and talking to him every second COMPULSIVELY...he'll be satisfied...and might even get bored. But if you're quiet even when you want to talk to him for hours on end, it leaves him guessing! Mystery is where the intrigue lies my dear! When your all quiet...they start to wonder why...and they feel like they "miss" you..and so they'll start doing things to get your attention. Let them initiate conversation with you, don't act like it's a priority to talk to them. They will seriously do stuff to get your attention if your quiet or they think you're "mad"...for example steal something from you; (ex. shoe). To be honest, I've even been sung too in the past just to get my attention! lol...it was in a joking way but it got me to laugh!! See what I mean? It depends on the guy I guess...and whether or not he has interest in you. But if he has interest even to be the slightest friends, he tends to go for you more.

Dakmor answered Tuesday October 11 2005, 4:35 pm: Ok, first of all, huge typo that will prevent confustion of so many people you're talking to. You said we never SEIZE amazing you. To seize something is to like take it, hence the phrase "seize control". You're thinking of "cease" which means to stop. We never stop amazing you, not take amazing you =D
Anyway, English class is over. Time for your answer. I really don't know, I mean this girl is sort of ignoring me and she knows for a fact that I love her a lot a lot a lot, and so I'm constantly staring at her and stuff in the few classes we have each other, and I guess I'll be more proud of myself if something goes right because it's not just take five minutes to get a girl and then ride bikes or something. But I would be very happy if she just said yes plain & simple. Ignoring him is just going to cause him much frustration and anger and stress and he'll eventually go into a state of depression and not want to go on living. Depression this great can turn the biggest class clown (aka me) into a boring serious student who never cracks a single joke, like that episode of South Park where everyone took Riddlin. Sorry, I get sidetracked a lot. But the point is, don't ignore him! I hate it! It's so annoying! Tell him you like him! Hope everything goes well between you two, good luck!

thinkpink03 answered Tuesday October 11 2005, 4:14 pm: it depends on the guy. some guys are attracted to that and the more you are mean to them they want you more idk, those kind of guys are weird but it just depends.
sbloemeke answered Tuesday October 11 2005, 4:03 pm: Depends on how he wants you now. If you ignore him when he has no interest in you, or minimal, he will give up. But if he does want you, he will want you even more. Unless you ignore him in a mean fashion.

My brother would quit. My best friend said he'd quit.
