my co-worker asked me out and i rejected him. in a nice way. Since then, he's been ignoring me not even looking my way. Like im a total stranger. Why is he ignoring me? its been a couple of months already
He really really liked you, and apparently it hit hard with the rejection. Probably embarrassed at himself to look at you, and maybe thinking that you didn't like him anymore might call him out or whatever... don't feel he hates you, is more apt trying to regain composure, and it probably is difficult even more of he is a shy guy to begin with, felt comfortable enough around you to take the risk of rejection. You need to make the first move and show him it's alright and go back to the things were. I promise it'll be ok good luck
he doesnt' want to be around you. If he has feelings and you don't that will simply lead to awkwardness between you and problems for him so in all probability he is simply trying to cut you out of his life in the best way he can (ignoring you) in order to not have to deal with that awkwardness/discomfort from knowing that his feelings are not reciprocated.
you rejected him so my guess is he was trying to be friends with you only in the hopes you would date him , he realised that isn't going to happen so he see's no point continuing getting to know you , this is dumb I realise but its my feel of things
you seem bothered by it, why? just ask him, but most likely he is hurt.
Why do you think? You broke his heart. Would you continue to talk to someone who broke your heart? If you broke my heart, I would only talk to your for work purposes (for example, if I need your help with something or I had to go through you for something)... otherwise, I would just stop talking to you and move on.
He liked you, but you rejected him. He is either distancing himself to move on, or to heal his ego. Since it's been a couple of months, he doesn't want to be around you. I wouldn't bother with him, either.
