What Happens When You Ignore An Aquarius Man?

So, you've decided to give an Aquarius man the silent treatment and it backfired on you. 

There's no surprise in that.

You knew his unique way of thinking mixed with his flighty air personality could make it hard to predict his reaction, but you can see a pattern emerge with astrology.

What happens when you ignore an Aquarius man?

An Aquarius zodiac sign has lots of friends.

And, they will turn to them when they feel rejected by the person they love.

Aquarius zodiac signs are people who were born between January 21 - February 18.

Ruled by Uranus, Aquarius is all about the element of surprise.

His friendliness and spontaneity are why you fell for him, right? Of course!

So remember that free-spirited Aquarius man marches to the beat of his own drum.

But that doesn't mean you aren't being effective when you set a clear boundary with an Aquarius man.

The moment you ignore an Aquarius man, you might lurk his social media to see if you're being effective only to find out that he's having fun without you.

You'll wonder what gives? Why is he not hurting inside like you are?

While you may not be a mind-reader, you can turn to astrology to understand the inner workings of this zodiac sign.

An Aquarius man is unique and his horoscope reveals why he acts in a way that you did not predict.

Unless you have a strong understanding of this zodiac sign, you won't know what will happen when you decide to try the silent treatment, but his horoscope knows.

To help you navigate the seemingly unpredictable world of an Aquarius man, here are some pointers as to what might happen if an Aquarius man is ignored.

Here's what happens when you ignore an Aquarius man, according to astrology:

1. At first, he will wonder why.

An Aquarius man is naturally curious, so he may even want you more.

Just because you're not speaking to him,that doesn't mean he's forgotten about you.

In fact, quite the opposite may be true. They are likely thinking of new ways to win your love back, and the matter isn't settled until they do!

Aquarius is a fixed air sign which can make them stubborn at times once they get an idea stuck in their head.

If he's stuck on you, he may not believe it's over without a fight.

If an Aquarius man takes an interest in you, romantic or otherwise, it can be hard for them to shake feelings and let you go.

Aquarians are also naturally very aloof, but not when it comes to serious things like love and relationships.

So treating him with distance may make him feel like he needs to talk to you more to get to the bottom of the matter and solve it.

If you genuinely don’t want to be in an Aquarius man’s life, it is better to be direct and set a boundary because ignoring them won’t make them go away.

You will want to be clear that it's over and not play games with his heart.

He may have trouble wrapping his mind around it, but he will accept it and move on once he sees you're for real.

2. He will communicate more.

He will find new ways to get your attention.

Aquarians are innovative and creative so he may email you or try to dm.

He will send you a long text or try and get your attention through friends that you have in common.

In tandem with their fixed modality, the Aquarius man will try to find new ways to get your attention if being in your life becomes their goal.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus which causes them to test their limits and be inquisitive.

They will test the limits to the cold shoulder treatment by trying to find ways to defrost your icy exterior.

Aquarius men are persistent and charming, so one of these attention grabbers may just work.

3. He will become intentional.

Aquarius will come on uncharacteristically strong, especially if their heart is broken.

Although they are usually a bit distant, when Aquarius puts their mind to something, they are determined to achieve it.

This motivation may make Aquarius come on strong despite their usual cool demeanor.

As they test their boundaries, they will try to find new ways to get your attention.

Aquarian men may realize that their habit of aloofness has not been effective, so they will try a bolder approach in order to compensate.

Aquarians are very unconventional, so you might find yourself in the middle of some unusual grand gestures.

4. His heart will break.

Aquarius may be hurt by the silence.

Air signs love to share ideas, so not being in contact with you can make him feel emotionally disconnected.

On the inside, Aquarius may be quite hurt by being ignored.

Aquarius is used to being deemed the weirdos of the zodiac, and most of the time they may not mind being on the fringe.

But, when an Aquarius man truly cares about someone, they will be upset and hurt by being ignored and once again treated as “other”.

This pain that they feel may motivate Aquarius to try harder to get you back into their life, or this may be the turning point in their attitude.

5. If all attempts fail to win you back, he will move on.

Aquarius is an air sign making them free-spirited and they have a lot of self-respect.

An Aquarius man may decide that all of their effort met with no response is their queue to just move on.

Their internal wounds may also become too much to bear, and the Aquarius man may decide that it is better to just cut their losses and move on.

When an Aquarius man is ignored, they will not be satisfied with the unsolved conflict.

But they won't wear their heart on their sleeve until a tipping point is reached.

Instead they do what comes natural to them. They have plenty of friends. They love to think.

And, chances are they turn to things that stimulate their mind when you start ignoring them.

Beware if an Aquarius does decide to stop trying with you, they won’t come back.

Their stubbornness also causes them to be grudge holders, so at a certain point they may not want to be back in your life.
