Why Is A Scorpio Man Ignoring Me? 5 Possible Reasons
In astrology, Scorpio is a fixed water sign. Scorpio’s fixed nature is represented by a Scorpion, a creature that hides alone in the shadows and stings (an act of self-sacrifice) when it feels threatened or attacked.
Because water signs are naturally sensitive individuals, the Scorpio man has a soft side that is sometimes impossible to uncover. Instead of exposing their sensual nature, they often choose to repress their intimate feelings and physically retreat. So what does it mean when a Scorpio man ignores you?
When a Scorpio is going through one of his transformation phases, you may not hear from him for weeks.
First, you must try to get an answer from him and find out the real reason for his behavior. To answer a question about why the Scorpio man ignores you, note that he could be ignoring you for one of the following reasons:
- He doesn’t understand how he feels about you.
- He is fearful or afraid to move forward.
- He finds you too aggressive or too needy.
- You are too dependent on him.
- He is dealing with something difficult.
When A Scorpio Man Says He Loves Me But Ignores Me, Does That Mean He Is Playing Games With Me?
When a Scorpio man is playing games with you, he is trying to see how you will act in certain scenarios. Examples of Scorpio mind games are numerous. He is trying to see what type of woman you are and how far he can push things.
A Scorpio man’s dark side comes out when he acts like this… He is quite manipulative, and he uses games to see what kind of person you are. He wants to see how much drama you are going to create or how chilled you are going to be in times like this.
As creepy as it sounds, he’ll watch how you move, how you act, how you react, what you say, and what you want, but he knows that there is a lot he can learn about you when he puts you to the test.
Scorpio men are really clever, and it isn’t always easy to pick up on what they are doing. They are very sly and cunning, so whatever they do, you might as well accept that they have an ulterior motive going on.

How To Beat A Scorpio Man At His Own Game (7 Ways)
So I have some useful tips on what should you do when your Scorpio man is ignoring you. Let’s check them out…
1. Call Him Out When He Deserves It
This may seem like controversial advice, but one of the best ways to respond to a Scorpio man who is suddenly ignoring you and intentionally playing hard to get is to beat him at his own game and call him out on it.
Let him know that you see he’s playing games. He is probably going to be pissed off and defensive at first. Ruled by power-driven Pluto, the Scorpio man doesn’t like to feel like he’s not in control or the most clever one in the room.
However, once he gets over his hurt ego and bruised pride, he will be turned on by your self-confidence and directness. The last thing a Scorpio man wants is a doormat as a partner. Here’s more on what a Scorpio man likes and dislikes in a woman.
Just make sure that you call him out without using disrespectful or foul language. If there’s another pet peeve bigger than someone who can outsmart him, it’s being disrespected. So tread lightly and take an honest approach.
2. Stand Your Ground
If a Scorpio man disrespects you for no reason (you did nothing to provoke him), it’s okay to speak out on it and let him know that you won’t tolerate the subtle disrespect.
Sometimes Scorpio men can use their conflicted emotional disposition as an excuse to manipulate others or mistreat others. But what he fails to realize is that going back and forth with someone who ignores you is emotionally draining for all parties involved.
So, instead of feeding into his drama and escapist tendencies, call him out on it and let him know that ignoring you is not the way to respond or react. Rather than avoiding his emotions, help him see through direct communication that you are on his side and want things to work out.
3. Ask Him What’s Wrong
One of the quickest ways to cut through the ego of an emotionally detached Scorpio is to blatantly ask him what’s wrong.
Oftentimes, Scorpio men don’t know how to express their complex emotions, and rather than saying they feel confused or overwhelmed, they choose to say nothing at all.
Rather than letting the silence go on, share your concern and frustration by checking on him. Ask him if it’s a personal issue that he’s having or if something within the relationship has changed.

4. Let It Go
As hard as it may be, if a Scorpio man ignores you on a consistent basis, it’s a telltale sign that it’s time to let it go and walk away. No matter how many times you tell yourself it’s just his personality, whether the love is so good or how connected he makes you feel, you deserve someone who will show up for you.
If you decide so, you need to make sure that you are ready to walk away from a Scorpio man. Don’t use ending the relationship as a tactic to draw attention or make him chase you, because threatening to leave a Scorpio man is a guaranteed way to push him away. Only say you want to end things or take a break if that’s what you are going to do.
Few More Tips On How To React When A Scorpio Man Ignores You
5. Apologize (If You Were Wrong)
If you recently had an argument with a Scorpio man and you hurt his feelings, good luck trying to get him to come to the door or answer the phone.
A hurt Scorpio is a bitter Scorpio, and a bitter Scorpio stings. As an emotional water sign, the Scorpio man is secretly sensitive and has a hard time letting go of hurt feelings.
So instead of talking about how he feels, he pushes you away and pretends you don’t exist. He would rather ignore you than confront his pain.
On the other hand, waving the white flag and taking responsibility for your part in the argument is often all it takes to get on this grumpy man’s good side again.
Although Scorpio men are known for holding grudges, they can be forgiving too. Just don’t hurt his feelings too often, or he may decide that the relationship is too stressful and walk the other way for good.
6. Play It Cool
It may be hard to believe, but sometimes the Scorpio man isn’t ignoring you on purpose. Sometimes he simply forgets to text you back, or he’s focused on something else.
Scorpio is a fixed water sign, meaning he becomes fixated on his desires easily. He has no problem focusing all his energy on one thing. Not that it’s any consolation when that focus falls away from you!
Instead of overreacting, keep your calm and play it cool. Let him know his absence hurts your feelings, and ask him to please call in the future. Be understanding and respectful when mistakes happen, but don’t be a doormat.
You need to set your standards so he knows what is and isn’t acceptable to you. Believe me, this is one of the best ways to beat a Scorpio man at his own game.
7. Check-In and Make Sure He’s Okay
If he is not busy, angry, or hurt, but your Scorpio man is still ignoring you, you may want to check in and make sure he’s okay. Although it’s not unusual for the Scorpio man to wander off into the hidden caves of his mind, he is still a social and intimate person who enjoys one-on-one contact, especially with the woman he’s dating or committed to.
Sometimes, the Scorpio man can overwork himself or become exhausted by intense emotions and need to retreat. But still, this is no excuse to ignore you…
Once you’ve checked in and made sure your guy is okay, remind him that you are a team, you are partners, and he doesn’t have to push you away to find space, rest, or heal.
For a lot of Scorpio men, feeling safe and supported by their partner can sometimes make them feel a little weak, and they feel like in order to regain their strength as men, they have to pull away.

Is Your Scorpio Man Distant After Intimacy?
Does your Scorpio man pull away or get quiet when you’ve just had a deep emotional connection? Does he seem to disappear just when you thought he was getting closer? Have you felt confused by his hot and cold behavior?
If so, then he might have an avoidant attachment style.
He could be Dismissive Avoidant and completely terrified of commitment… Or he could be Fearful Avoidant and REALLY want commitment…
But get scared when he feels himself getting closer to you.
If he has either one of these attachment styles, you’re going to end up feeling extremely confused at times. And both are caused by childhood trauma.
When you can see the scared little boy inside him that had to shut down his feelings if he’s dismissive avoidant… Or have a parent not provide his needs consistently if he’s fearful avoidant…
It can make it easier to have empathy and compassion for his confusing and frustrating behavior.
But that won’t fix it.
And while advice on attachment styles can be helpful… What you really need to stop this frustrating hot and cold cycle is to understand him better.
There is a simple system to TRULY understand how a Scorpio man ticks based on his astrology. It will stop him from pulling back when you begin feeling closer. And it will accomplish this in only 30 days.
So no more crying yourself to sleep when he pulls back… No more feeling incredibly confused. And no more wondering what in the heck is going on with him…
Even if he has an avoidant attachment style.
