Not all ignoring is malicious. One person might ignore another because he or she doesn't know how to cope with a situation. You are clearly a very good communicator, but you are one of the lucky ones. Many people find it difficult to express feelings, and they clam up when confronted with conflict or confusion. Definitely communication is better than ignoring; good communication would solve most of our relationship problems. I know it seems turned around, but often ignoring someone is really a cry out to that other person to help get that communication started.
