Ignoring a Scorpio Man Can Be Disastrous – This Is Why

Are you irritated or hurt by a Scorpio man but you’re not ready to talk to him about it so you’re ignoring him? There are some really good reasons why this isn’t helpful to you.

Keep reading why ignoring a Scorpio man is a mistake:

Doesn’t Know What Is Wrong

If you are ignoring a Scorpio man out without giving him the courtesy of telling him what he did, this will annoy him. He cannot defend what he doesn’t know happened or what he supposedly said.

Scorpio men are inquisitive and analytical. If you ignore him, it will drive him crazy and this will lead to him being pissed off. Once he’s pissed off, he will have a hard time calming himself or he will blame you.

The last thing you want him to do is turn it around on you but if he isn’t sure why you’re angry or hurt then he cannot fix it, defend himself, or even apologize. Ignoring him isn’t the right thing. Tell him what is wrong.

Tell him what he did or what he said that made you so upset. This way he has a chance to figure out what the right thing is to do given the situation. He’s already an emotional guy so when you ignore him you make him go nuts.

Playing Games

Ignoring a Scorpio Man

Scorpio man is good at playing games back if you insist on playing them with him. What I mean by this is if you decide you want to make him chase you or make him jealous, he’ll probably do it right back to you.

No one wins if he’s busy trying to even the score. Ignoring him to see if he’ll chase you down is a gamble that probably isn’t worth the risk. It’s better for you to tell him that you’d like more of his time or attention.

It’s typically best to be honest with him rather than try to play with his head by not responding to his texts, not calling him back, etc. Some Scorpio men may try again to be with you but some will just go ahead and move on.

If you flirt with other men to get his attention while you’re ignoring him or post on social media how great your life is when he’s not around, he will retaliate and you will be hurt. That’s almost a guarantee. Don’t risk it!

May Think the Worst

As I mentioned before, the Scorpio man is analytical and his brain is constantly tossing around scenarios. If you ignore him, he will mull through various types of situations that could be causing you to ignore him.

If he believes you are ignoring him because you’ve found someone else or that you’ve moved on, you probably will not ever hear from him again. He will simply figure that you’ve chosen and it’s time he moved on.

Even if he loves you and never forgets you, he will not stick around and wait for someone to talk to him or explain herself if she’s left him for someone else or decided that he wasn’t worth her time.

That’s basically what it comes down to. He feels that if you aren’t paying attention to him or are ignoring him when he reaches out that you’re just not into him, you have secrets you’re not sharing, or that you have no respect for him.

He may also think that you are ghosting him. Certainly, if you’re upset or angry and ignoring him but he is unaware of the reason then yes, he will think the worst and it’s probably just not a good idea to not answer him.

Bad Call To Make

In general, it’s a bad choice to make if you decide to ignore a Scorpio man. Whether he is aware of what he did or isn’t, he will not tolerate being ignored. He’s the type that will be like “my way or the highway”.

That also applies “either pay attention to me or you can be replaced”. I wouldn’t test any of these theories honestly. Scorpio man wants to be paid attention to, he wants you to respond to him, and he wants to have confidence in you.

Basically when you ignore him no matter what the reason, he feels that you aren’t being respectful and you really don’t care about him. He thinks that if you did, you wouldn’t leave him hanging.

When he feels that you’re not giving him what he wants or what he needs, he will not stick around and wait for you to come back out of your shell and share with him what you’re feeling or what happened that caused you to go silent.

Before he takes off though, he may want some revenge. He may say something really messed up before he then goes silent on you. It’s like you’ll want to respond to him but then you won’t get anything from him after that.

He wants to give you a taste of your own medicine. So the moral of the story is here, don’t ignore a Scorpio man no matter what. If you’re upset with him, tell him you are and then tell him you need a little while to process it.

Tell him you need quiet time to think. That way he’s aware of what is going on and doesn’t feel as though you’re ignoring him.

Though truth be told, he’d rather you just tell him flat out what he did wrong or why you are so upset than simply ignoring a Scorpio man.

Conclusion

Ignoring a Scorpio Man

He may not like it and he may become upset himself but at least he knows what is going on and can try to work with that. It’s better than taking the huge risk of just going radio silent on him.

Scorpio men do not like to be ignored by their partner and will not do well with it. It’s best to be upfront and get it out of the way.

    • Hi Hana

      Oh hell yeah. That happened to me several times with a Scorpio. I’m a loving Cancerian woman and don’t deserve this. First of all, every time I would want to talk with him about something he did that made me upset, he would just shut down and disappear for a week(no emails, no phone calls,no contact whatsoever) even after I would explain how communication is important in a relationship. He toyed with my heart. So he’s on active military duty and didn’t even say goodbye to me before he left, and then out of the blue when he’s out of state on the military duty, he emails me. Of course, I didn’t answer back. He’ll be gone the whole month of November, and I plan to “ignore” him for that whole time. I even ignored him on his birthday which was yesterday. Let’s see how that Scorpio likes a dose of his own medicine. He’s not only shuts down and disappears, but he lies, is neglectful and has no remorse for the things he does. Take him back??? Hell no!

  • Long story short, my scorpio guy friend is not talking with me because I did not want to drive him for over two hours with my car in a bad state. Yes I did have one thing repaired, but there are a whole bunch of other things wrong with it, and I had just gotten out of the hospital with an illness. His car had broken down the day before mine got fixed. I suggested he call the guy who wanted him to come see him as he was willing to help him out in all sorts of other ways. This was 2 days ago, and I haven’t heard a word. I have tried to text and call him a few times, but radio silence. We normally talk/text all day long. Is there anything I can do? Thank you for your reply.

    • Just randomly pull up( show up to places he’ll be at and play like you had no clue 😤✌🏽If you lucky and you do find him( which btw he is in between hurt and the disliked mental maze we go through 🤷🏽‍♂️the gesture of not picking him up changed his whole mood about you and towards the situation.), but if you do find him, have on the most gorgeous yet respectful dress you can find, and it HAS to be in his favorite color, otherwise he will completely will ignore you like you two never met. Best wishes on your journey ✌🏽

      • its true 🙂 my scorpio didnt talk to me and distance himself for 1 week straight. No text no call, no liking pict on IG no comment on wa, lol. just distance and i know he’s online. The reason is because I ask him to create a short vid because i miss him so much. And he say too busy and not that free. Meanwhile i always send him my pic or vid. So i decided to stop that. no more picture or vid for 2 days straight too. No text no call. i dont much post on my social media too. I know he’ll miss me.

        So i dress myself so cute that night. create a cute video saying the situation (make sure you mean it and says it clear about whats going on lately. dont get too much drama).

        That i notice he didnt response to me the way he used to. I’m not sure why, but id like to understand the reason. And also i explain, mostly i stop talking or ignoring someone is because i mad, sad, or angry. I do apreciate if he can find any other solution because i can’t continue doing this if he keep shutting me out. Also i tell him i love him, and feel blessed for his love. All those phrase i create, calmly and pure energy. I look straight to the camera. only 1 minute vid. I make sure he sees my leg, my hair, my smile he always adore. Simple makeup but cute af.

        And guess what? he reply with lots of love. kisses. and saying my dp and video are so cute, he want to kiss me each time he see my face. (see? he did notice i change my dp, but pretend not to).

        he open up himself again. Keep calm. No rush. Understand that he is sensitive and sometimes overwhelmed by his own feeling and overthinker. I surprise him by saying, baby, i’ve been naughty this past 2 days and maybe deserve a spanking 🙂 he react cool, so i can approach more to seduce him. He always love the feeling of being wanted so bad. I give him that sensation, only if he be a good guy (like responding my approach). Yes. Its a game for this zodiac. Its about sensation. Play with him as long as u dont get drawn. Know your worth. If it hurt u, let him know. He may say it your fault, for let the stupid feeling control u. But deep inside, he was talking to himself about that :). Mirroring. Understand that. He change his behavior step little step. Appreciate that.

        Am a Tauran, by the way

        • Hi Tauran Lover! Thank you so much for sharing your experience. It sounds like you’ve found an excellent formula for making things work in your own relationship. Kudos to you! Yes, knowing your own worth is VERY important. No woman should ever allow a guy to treat her badly or that her feelings are unimportant. I love what you had to say and blessings to you sweetheart! I wish you all the best.

      • Hi Shawn! I’m not sure if that would work well on the guy she’s referring to. He sounds to be about him and not really caring what her feelings are. If he does ignore her then she needs to move on and leave him alone. He may not be very fruitful in her life if he’s going to act that way. She should proceed as normal and see how he acts. It’s not alright for him to be the way he was.

    • Hi K! He sounds like he was being rather selfish then if he didn’t understand what you were going through or dealing with. That’s on him, not on you. He needs to get over himself and get back to talking to you like normal. I’d text him like normal and not mention anything and see what he does. If he’s pouting then he won’t reply or he’ll give a childish answer. If he answers you like normal then just proceed like it never happened. Be leery of this behavior of his though.

  • Okay so me and this Scorpio man have the same birthday November 4 and we don’t date but he thinks we do I can’t stress it enough I tell him we are not dating you ain’t my daddy or nobody I have to respond to ASAP we have the same birthday and so I was thinking we kinda are the same sort of people but I guess wrong he just kept on stalking me like damn I couldn’t breathe he just kept on texting and texting we are in different states we fell out a couple of months ago but I do kinda miss him I guess he blocked me on Instagram so I mean it’s whatever

  • what if your scorpio man has broken up with you? I have been doing no contact (even on his birthday) because he decided to end the relationship.

    • I tried that no contact rule. It didn’t work. I greeted him on his bday, 5 months after he broke up w me. Not even a thank you. I’m sorry you’re going thru this. I feel your pain.

    • Hi V! Well if he broke up with you then he probably will not be the one reaching out to you. He feels justified in doing what he did. If you want to talk to him, you’re going to have to reach out to him otherwise you will have to let go and move on. If he’s not the right one then there is someone else who is and your heart needs to be open and ready!

  • Yes..I can totally relate. They seem to have different rules for themselves. Its very frustrating. I don’t know the answer. Totally confused.

  • Why can they ignore you. Climb into their shell. But won’t tolerate you doing the same. Mine won’t ever address problems. So I feel I haven’t a choice. These men can be high maintenance indeed. It’s been a wild ride. And a bit frightening. I give him tons of love and attention..he is clueless of my needs. I feel silly seeking them out to him when he hasn’t any desire to meet them. He has said very sincere and amazingly sweet things to me. But much of his behavior is defensive. We are like 2 sides of the same coin. I feel like our soul contact has expired but because we work together a few days a month it is very hard so resist the attraction. Very strong. I know his body language. The nuances in his voice…we can be yards away and one look between us is eletricfing. Our interation definitely has a dark side to it. We both have Water and Fire in our charts. Not much Earth. His moon is also in Scropio. Holy smokes. What do you think ?

    • Hi Alana! Sometimes you have to keep bumping heads with a Scorpio to get them to wake up to the problems they keep putting off. It is frustrating for sure. What you can try to do is get a good night where you two can sit down and really open up. Both of you need to basically unload all you feel and what you want. Bring pen and paper so you can both write things down and ask what he thinks you two can do to work through the problems that are there. Maybe you’ll actually make some headway. Otherwise you’ll have to figure out if you can live with him like this for the long run or not. It’s up to you.

  • Scropios di not do well with taking 5geurciwn medicine..trust me. They have a different set of rules ( or no rules) for themselves. they can be incredibly selfish and self absorbed . And some play mind games. Just value yourself and nice on if it all gets too much. Keep boundaries with these men. You may be surprised at the outcome they could wake up
    They will treat you the way you let them. Don’t retaliate and be cold and nasty like they can be. Don’t sink to that. You will be punished or caused out gaureeteed. Just causing more pain and heartbreak. Hold you head up high..respect yourself. There are 11 other signs out there.

  • I’ve been seeing a Scorpio for 14 months, I recently told him that he wasn’t meeting my needs. We always have the same argument about he makes time for everyone else, so he ended it saying we can’t continue this cycle. He always fought for me so I know him ending things is for good. He is such a stubborn man that he won’t reach out to me. I’m just so lost. I said my peace to him and he just ignored me.

    • I’m sorry about what happened to you. I also reached out to my ex, and he never acknowledged it. I hope we overcome this hurdle. Goodluck 🙂

    • Hi KH! He sounds like he’s set in his ways and not willing to change it for you. I’m glad you said his peace. If he cannot get on board then he’s not the right guy for you honey. You deserve what you desire and nothing less. If he cannot step it up then you have every right to move forward in your life. Give it a little time without contacting him either and see what happens.

  • My ex didn’t like labels. But towards the end of our relationship, he kept making me admit that l love him. Every time he asked me, l would say no. One day, he texted me and said “it’s over” It hurt. He said he couldn’t do it in person. He said we’re not on the same page. When l asked to see him one last time, he said he will think about it but he needed space. That was 7months ago. I still love him. This is the very first time l can’t let go. Idk why…

    • Hi Mira! He must have some strong Taurus traits. They’re usually the ones that don’t like titles. After 7 months you should try to reach out to him and find out what is going on. If he doesn’t answer you then he’s let go and you’ll have to move forward. There is a chance that he might answer you though. I hope he does but if he doesn’t, I hope you find the right person that will give you all you should have!

    • Hi Guest! If his ex is sniffing around you have to tell him you’re not alright with that. You also have trust him. Cheating is a two way street. If he can say no to her then there is nothing you should worry about. It’s not fun of course but if you trust him then you will know she won’t win him over.

  • I’m a Scorpio man, I think the best way to describe myself is that I’m your best friend if that is what you want and I can be your worst greatest enemy if you want that too. I value loyalty and honesty above everything else in my life. I am not selfish, I will give of my time and money to help others but be warned if you steal from me or think you can take me for a fool I will let you get away with it the first time out. I will let the person think that they won, but in all reality, I have decided to lay in wait for the right time to strike back and I won’t care how you might feel about it. In short, if you hurt me, I will do the same to you without a second thought. I’m a great friend and even a better partner, husband, and father. Sexually, we are very passionate and will do everything possible to make you feel loved and wanted, but don’t forget we want your attention too. I will always place your interests before my own, but I don’t like being ignored. Remember, we expect honesty and loyalty in return, and if you are not prepared to do that than it would be a good idea not to pursue us because if you lie to a Scorpio we will never forget it and we will do everything to correct matters and in the end, there is no moving forward. I hope this helps understand Scorpio men. How you treat a Scorpio man is what you will get in return. Treat us well and you will always have us by your side. Treat us poorly and you will learn to regret it.

    • Hi Robert! Thank you so much for describing how you are as a Scorpio man. It’s refreshing when a man can write in and discuss what it’s like for him. I’m sure some of the women here will really appreciate your input as well. Truly I’m blessed for your visit and for your opening. Blessings to you Robert!

  • Hi, so I was in a “situationship” with a Scorpio… trust me, I wish I could say it was more BUT sadly no. I just want to add, he pursued me I wasn’t even the slightest interested. I actually wanted to be friends. But thought to give it a try. So, at the start of us dating (2 weeks in) he classed me as a cheater for not answering his call (apparently it was intention to ignore) .. I genuinely missed his call cos I was on my way to pick up my sister (who I hadn’t seen for 3 years) from the International Airport. He knew well in advance she was visiting and that I was collecting her that night. What escalated it even more.. he told me he drove past my house saying he never saw my car in the driveway and wanted to know where I was ? (I thought it was obvious cos I believe he was well informed) He turned up to my house later on in that evening accusing me of being with another guy? Tried to make me feel guilty for standing him up, apparently he booked an expensive dinner for him and I that same night WTF?! next thing is … I’m forced to introduce this unstable guy to my sister “Hey sis meet my new BF smh” SO Anyhow, this guy doubted everything I said .. came up with the worst or obvious scenarios despite my words AND actions. He could definitely sense my honesty and my nature we connected spiritually however, he had a good way of sabotaging the relationship. Treated it like it was too good to be true or something 🙄 I’m not saying I’m perfect but I know what I AM AND I know what IM NOT .. he has tried to make me believe I have all these dark secrets and desires … Honestly, I have nothing to hide BUT I don’t have anything out of the ordinary to share either. I just have a good handle of myself It’s a self love thing filling my own cup, I am a confident woman who is fearlessly resilient & independent. I guess this may have been a challenge for him cos the manipulating games started. Sigh zzzz (yawn) He tried all the tricks to get me to react. For example used other females to make me jealous? gaslighting – reframing events or made up events that never even happened. Trying to force me to believe something that wasn’t true 🤨 The guilt trips. OML it was one drama after another. This is when I really started to ignore him. For good reason too. Clearly he wanted the satisfaction to get on my nerves, cos the stupid acts kept happening. I would call him out on it and he would try to turn it around onto me… I was aware of what he was doing so if anything I had more sympathy for him. What he didn’t realise was, his acts and behaviour said more about who he was as a person. My point, string of events happened from ONE missed call which apparently was me INTENTIONALLY ignoring and being rude. He went to such lengths for some reaction or attention. Just not worth the time and energy. What a shame. My Brother is a Scorpio and I ended up sharing my experience with him… funny thing is he could relate and said unfortunately this sounds like a Scorpio that’s still yet to evolve.
