Arguing with a Scorpio man is never fun, but ignoring a Scorpio man is even worse. These men don’t react to this treatment kindly. With some guys, the “no contact” rule works, but if you are planning on working things out with your Scorpio man, I wouldn’t advise it!
A Scorpio man loves being in control, feeling powerful is really important to him! So, if you ignore a Scorpio man it will drive him crazy, and it might bring out the vengeful and possessive side to him.
You might think ignoring a Scorpio man will make him chase after you, or make him realize his mistake, but for a man who is so obsessed with power, it might not work out in your favor. So, if you are planning on ignoring a Scorpio man, then think twice.
Here is a list of reasons why you shouldn’t ignore a Scorpio man, keep on reading to find out more:
The No Contact Rule With A Scorpio Man – The Dating Phase
The only time it is ever okay to “ignore” a Scorpio man is when the two of you are in the dating phase of your relationship. However, it is really important that it doesn’t seem like you are actually ignoring him.
A Scorpio man thrives on mystery and intrigue, and if a woman seems like she has quite an exciting life, it may interest the Scorpio man beyond belief. When dating a Scorpio man, you definitely should not be too available.
Only contact him when appropriate and make sure that you space your text messages out. You want him to keep coming back for more and only share when you have something really interesting you have to say to him.
The ideal situation of course is that you ARE actually really busy with interesting things and that you aren’t consciously ignoring him. This is a lot more authentic than playing hard to get. Fill your life up with fun and exciting hobbies and events and you won’t need to fake it.
You need to keep it cool, and playing hard to get isn’t a bad idea with your Scorpio man.
Ignoring A Scorpio Man After A Fight – The Relationship Phase
When you have settled into a committed relationship with your Scorpio man, it can be a little trickier to just flat-out ignore him. By this point, he probably sees you as his own and feels possessive over you.
When you ignore a Scorpio man, you are likely hurting him quite badly and, in turn, making him feel really mad and out of control. The truth is, a Scorpio man is quite sensitive and emotional, and when someone he cares about stonewalls him, it can sting very deeply.
He is going to do everything in his power to control the outcome and find a way to get a reaction out of you, and when he stops doing this, then you have likely blown your chances with your Scorpio man.
Here is a list of what a Scorpio man might be going through when you ignore him:
1. He Doesn’t Know What Is Wrong
If you are ignoring a Scorpio man 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 to 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.
2. He’s Playing Games
The Scorpio man is good at playing games 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!
3. He 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.
4. It Is A 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, “it’s my way or the highway.”
That also applies to “either pay attention to me or you can be replaced.” I wouldn’t test any of these theories, honestly. The 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 seek some revenge. He may say something really messed up before he then goes silent on you. It’s likely 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.
Ignoring A Scorpio Man After A Break-Up – The Breakup Phase
Good luck, girl! Breaking up with a Scorpio man is almost impossible. He is a fixed sign, and fixed signs are notoriously bad at letting go because they want to be in control of the outcome, especially if it wasn’t his decision to break up.
A Scorpio man will continue to fight the ending of the relationship and make it really, really hard for you to move on, unfortunately. This is when it is best for you to just stonewall him and not play into his mind games.
A Scorpio man can be manipulative and knows how to push all of your buttons. It is really hard to detangle yourself from a relationship with a Scorpio man, and this is often when I suggest to a woman to disappear and ignore him.
You need to get your space and figure out what you really want from your relationship. Getting some distance from your Scorpio man will do you a world of good, and it should also help him to recover and gain some clarity.
It isn’t going to be easy to cut ties with him, and he is definitely going to make it as difficult as possible for you to do, but you need to stay strong if you are sure that the end of the relationship is what you truly want.
What Happens When You Ignore A Scorpio Man
Ignoring a Scorpio man is one of the worst things you could do, especially if you see a future with this man. When he gets a whiff of you ignoring him it can be disastrous to your relationship.
He is not going to want to be around you anymore because he won’t understand why you could disrespect him like this. All he actually wants is the truth, but by not giving him the chance to fix things you are really hurting him, and disappointing him at the same time.
He will quickly decide to ignore you back, and when a Scorpio man first starts to ignore you, it can be pretty impossible to get his attention back again. This guy is known for his focus and determination.
It will take a lot of hard work to get him to budge and open up to you again. A Scorpio man can be more vengeful than you could ever imagine, so don’t give him the opportunity to show you this side of him, because I guarantee it is going to sting!
How (And When) To Ignore A Scorpio Man
Don’t Ignore Him If You See A Future With Him
Ignoring a Scorpio man is guaranteed to backfire. This guy does not respond well to being ignored by his significant other. If you think giving him the cold shoulder is going to make him act differently or fix the problems between you two, you are definitely mistaken.
If you see a future with your Scorpio man, you should never ignore him; this will only make the problems you have between the two of you escalate and worsen. If you want to fix things with a Scorpio man, then you are going to have to learn to communicate and be open about your grievances.
Ignore Him After A Breakup
The only time I ever really recommend ignoring a Scorpio man is when the two of you have already broken up and you are ready to move on. A Scorpio man will really fight you if you decide to leave him.
This is his worst fear come true. The reason he is so controlling and possessive is that he is actually so scared of losing the person he loves so much, so when it comes true, it can feel like the end of the world to him.
However, if you want to move on from him you are going to have to go no contact with him. Make it impossible for yourself to speak to him. Block him on your phone and move on. The distance will do you both a world of good.
He is not going to be happy about this, but this is better than him constantly trying to get back with you in a relationship. You need a break from him, so cut your losses and let go.
My Final Thoughts
He may not like it and he may become upset 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 partners and will not do well with it. It’s best to be upfront and get it out of the way.
