I’m answering this from a woman’s point of view and I prefer the word ‘aloof’ rather than ‘ignore’.
Most women have found that when they’re not really into a man, some men will come on even stronger. They’re attracted to women who appear unavailable.
Women who are aloof always do seem to get the guy, because they exude self-confidence and an air of mystery. It can also be very seductive.
Men love a chase and they love mystery. With mystery, comes a sense of intrigue:
What is it about her?
What is she hiding?
Could she be ‘the one’?
When a woman is aloof, men pursue her because she isn’t acting like other women. Some even see her as a challenge. They don’t know what’s on her mind, and they want to be the one who unlocks her deepest secrets.
Right or wrong, some women use it to their advantage, a ploy to gain a man’s attention.
But aloof can also be a protective wall for women to weed out men they don’t want to get to know.
