Why does a Scorpio man ignore you?

It is a Scorpio male trait that these guys may become distant at times. This is specifically common if you are in a relationship with a Scorpio man. At times, he may be attentive and very responsive, while other times, he may just disappear, even ignoring your calls and messages. It is normal for a Scorpio man to occasionally withdraw himself from his partner.

Scorpio men have a general tendency to withdraw when they need to deal with their own; unhappiness, dissatisfaction, stress or workload. In this situation, we recommend giving him space and time and letting him be. In order to do this, you will need to be patient, understanding it from his point of view. In the end a relationship is about compromise, and yes, maybe this behavior may not seem fair at the time, but it’s just how Scorpio men can be. A relationship is about compromise and understanding, from both sides. If you are in a relationship with a Scorpio man and he is ignoring you, know that it does not necessarily mean he does not love you. A Scorpio man can be in love with you but still ignore you, this is simply (despite at times being frustrating) just a trait of his Zodiac sign.

Understanding a Scorpio man

As a matter of fact, Scorpio men are very emotional, trustworthy and passionate. However, at the same time, they are very private, specifically when it comes to their emotions and feelings. When a Scorpio man is happy, he will share every thought with you, appearing to be very open and transparent. However, if a Scorpio man is hurt or sad, there is a high chance he might withdraw and this Scorpio might ignore your suddenly. In fact, if a Scorpio man is in a bad mood, you will 100% know about it.

Scorpio men have can at times lose their cool. If your Scorpio loses their cool and see you, as they partner, are indifferent; they will react. Scorpio men need reassurance, if they feel that their partner no longer likes them or is falling out of love with them; again, they will react. A Scorpio man is intuitive, but unfortunately, can also be too possessive. If your Scorpio man feels some of the above, your Scorpio man may ignore you for a while.

Scorpios have a reputation of being difficult, but this is just to do with their passion. Yes, maybe they are complicated. But for some reason Scorpio men often get a bad rap. We should know to be understanding and not to judge anyone for their star sign. We wouldn't want this to happen to Scorpio women or any gender either.

Is he ignoring me?

As we have already mentioned, Scorpio men are introspective and independent. They will often withdraw when they need space to handle their own stress, problems, workload and other issues. Sometimes, they will also ignore you if they are irritated or feel claustrophobic in their relationship. These Scorpio men might even disappear for a few hours, and at times, maybe even a few days. We are not saying this behavior is excusable. If anyone disrespects you, they probably shouldn't be in your life.

Although maybe it’s not fair, the way to win a Scorpio man back, would be to understand and accept this trait of his. Yes, in a lot of ways, it is a double standard, but a Scorpio man in love can be quite difficult to understand. If you want to be sure that he is ignoring you, here are a few signs you might notice when a Scorpio man needs space;

  • He will not talk to you like he normally does.
  • He will not share how he is feeling with you, and may seem distant.
  • He will get irritated, even if you’re just in the same room.
  • He will avoid making any kind of physical contact with you, not even holding hands.
  • Making love is impossible for a Scorpio man who is not feeling happy or in love .

When a Scorpio man feels the need to be alone, don’t feel intimidated by it. It is better not to take these withdrawals personally. Most of the time, taking time to be alone will allow him to actually feel closer to you. One could link this to the saying ‘distance makes the heart grow fonder’; the same applies to a Scorpio man. If a Scorpio man is ignoring you, as tempting as it may be, we don’t recommend ignoring him back. We suggest remaining patient, until he has had time to gather his thoughts and returns to you.

What to do when he ignores you

When a Scorpio man remains silent and distant, but only with you, it is a sign that you have possibly done something which upset him or something he didn’t like. If you notice that your Scorpio man is quiet, angry or upset; give him space. However, both of you should also make sure that this space doesn’t go on for too long, as you could also risk losing your connection; and in the end, break up.

The tricky thing is that if you start ignoring him back, or not approaching him at all, it could develop into a competition of who can ignore each other the best. In this case, a stubborn Scorpio will win. Therefore, stay true to yourself, see how he is and message him occasionally, but do not bombard him neither.

If for example, he does come back as if nothing has happened, and this upsets you; talk to him. Once he has had time to think about everything and is more clear, you may be too. Look at this space as not only beneficial for him, but for you too. Once together again, speak to your man and express your feelings. We recommend trying to come to a compromise on how you can avoid this happening again. For more, we suggest taking a look at our article on; How To Have A Stable Relationship.

How To Deal With A Scorpio Man Ignoring You - What to do when he ignores you

Understanding men

Is your Scorpio man ignoring you? Sure, there is a possibility it may be you, but it may equally be due to external factors. Is he stressed? Has he had a bad day at work? The unfortunate thing is that when Scorpion men are angry, they tend to project it onto the people they love the most. This is because they expect these people to understand, and in the end, they don’t then risk loosing anyone. One significant trait of a Scorpio is that they can be selfish. The best thing to do in this case, even if you are not the reason, is to still give your Scorpio man space.

If you force him to talk about something too soon, before he has had time to think, there is more likeliness he may blow up. So, it’s best to leave him alone and allow him to deal with his issues himself; and enjoy this time away!

Compromises in a relationship

Compromise in a relationship can be difficult, especially if you are a proud person. To win a Scorpio man back, if you are the reason he left, you should apologize. But this is exactly what you would want him to do if the situation were vice versa right? Relationships, as mentioned before, are about compromise. Scorpio guys have a tendency to hold grudges for long. Therefore, depending on what the reason is they are angry, forgiveness will come with a ’’sorry’’ and time. Scorpio men will become even more resentful if the reason is partly your fault and you don’t feel the need to apologize.

Stay calm

Scorpios guys will lash out when they are angry, which is why they prefer ignoring you instead of starting conflict. They don’t want to get angry, this is why they ignore you. Due to this, it becomes even more necessary to just give them space. If you don’t, astrology believers think that these Scorpios can be mean and blow up. If you hurt them in the past, Scorpios find it difficult to forget; and might throw it back at you in the future.

I’ve been with my scorpio man for 2 years. We are living together from almost the begging of our relationship and it’s been a connection very strong between us. Very rarely having an argument and even then we where managing to discuss and close it up. But lately I don’t understand what’s happening, he became very cold and distant. We have more and more fights, mention about break ups and every my trial to become closer to him end up with a fight, as I feel frustrated by his coldness and ask questions which leads to arguments. From our last conversation we agreed me to go for a vacation back to my country, for us to cool off. It’s been 3 days he called me only once, yesterday I tried to call him but him being at work, sent a message he’ll call back later. He never did…
Now I’m booking my tickets but I’m flying to a different country to see a close friend. Planning to give him his space even though my heart hurts. Trying to not think about anything, just letting the situation go with the flow. (He mentioned that lately at works it’s been a bit difficult, but don’t know why it changed his behavior towards me… Maybe he is interested in a coworker, maybe just fell out of love with me, maybe he just really needs some space as it’s mentioned in the article) it’s taugh, but if I tried to hard to make him closer again and it pushes him more away. Chooses to just let the time show what it will end up with, planning to not contact him at all, when he calls to act as his mirror, not more then this. Even though it hurts :(
Yes true enough . Hurt by a scorpio man behavior. Been sweet and nice at the beginning. Lately been very hot and cold and distant and I dont understand this scorpio man. Not sure if he has anyone else or if his attention been divided to elsewhere. I am a Capricorn. And I think I been very patient with his hot and cold Behaviours. Some days texting are on going some days are very short. Very mysterious scorpio man. 🤦‍♀️
I'm getting the silent treatment too. We were supposed to be going away this weekend, but instead he is playing silly bugger! Thank God I didn't waste money on a hotel booking.
Really hurt by his behaviour, he went from being considerate, attentive and loving to a petty, ignorant and hurtful prick in no time at all and over nothing. No room for me, him and his Ego in this relationship... hope they'll be very happy together!

I believe Scorpio men are way to into self. Everything is about them and if not, you bore them. I'm dealing with one right now and he's ignoring me right now because, I guess, our plans didn't work out for the weekend and he ended up working most of that time. We didn't even get to see each other before I caught my flight back so he's sad too. It could not be helped is the way I see it, but he has gone dark. O well wait til he says boo right?
Am a sagittarian girl . It's more than 15 months that am with a scorpio man . He is incredible & worthy the best . Yes at first he disapeared for more than 1 day & it made me so sad , i talk him about my feels to him when he is not here & remembered him that i love him , is so important to me & i know he need this distance & time & he respected me & tells me that needs his lonly time . He is much more better & i feel awesome now . Distance is not bad at all , while he create his mind , you can make up yourself , listen music , do all you want & ... . Atleast for me ( sagittarius ) is a big chance to more freedom . Life is so beautiful if i let other be themselve . Love you my gorgeous scorpio man xoxo
It is kind of too late for our relationship, but wow, the article described his behavior to the Tee. Now I get it!! I wish I had known these things during our relationship. Maybe I would have been a little patient with him ignoring me. I was so overwhelmed by his love making that I was so positive that he was screwing someone else. so, I ended the relationship. Now I know He loved me a whole lot. Dang it....I miss Him even more after reading the article.
If you both were so close to each other & he is single yet & is not in a new relationship so come back & do not think about your pride ! Your happiness is the most important think in the world . Do it for yourself not him !
Scorpio woman help
Question I am a beautiful Scorpio woman who just met my scorpio man. Everything has been going so well. That I just seen him at arbys for a conversation before we both departed home. He hugged me and told me his daughter leaves today back with her mom. So you know me being a Scorpio woman. I'm thinking he would want to spend more time with me since his daughter will be gone. Can any Scorpio man tell me why on earth would he just disappear? He stopped messaging me late afternoon about 6:30pm. I never heard anything back from him. Yes I've texted him plenty time's and do not want to blow him up all day today. I don't understand why he's doing this. He tells me he wants to try this and that he has noone and infact we have been seeing eachother every weekend even when his daughter is at his place. We will still make time for one another. I am freaking out and yes I have blocked him. Only due to the fact I am scared he will hurt me. I don't even want to know if he texts me back at this point 😩😢😢. I am really wanting answers but it's not fair for him to be stubborn and disappear if he truly likes me. I am the queen of being petty and win everytime. I don't want to do this to my scorpio man he's different. By the way I am 29 and he is 35 I thought he would be a little more mature as well. Best- Aerielle
This is biggest BS article I have ever read... if He is ignoring you etc. Its your fault... read some more, its something you did. Okay
Lmao honestly so stupid. I was feeling a little apologetic but after reading this article. He can go to hell. I asked a question and he got upset. I can’t walk on eggshells in a relationship
LOL! If you are doing all this to salvage a relationship, you are dealing with a child, not and adult. RUN!
Run indeed! This is how all the Scorpios I know have acted in a relationship. This advice is so bogus. No one should tolerate their double standards, silences, insecurities, manipulations, etc., who cares about having a healthy relationship.
Thank you for these responses! This is some high-level b.s. behavior and I thought maybe I'm being harsh but these confirm - this is just some deeply dysfunctional nonsense! Scorpios have it in them to rise to their highest potential but not if they stay - or you allow - this ridiculousness to continue without progress and evolution. 27yr married to Scorp who does this bs and I say bloody run if they start & continue this mess. If they can be healthy with the kids at least maybe stay with serious respect for your own boundaries and sanity.
