Recently, I was ignored by a guy because I was straightforward and laid it on the line after he ignored me and started this push/pull game. I told him how I felt about him and that I wasn't going to play the push/pull game, but in a nice, loving way, and said if he didn't message me back, I'd move on, make peace with it and wish him the best. He completely ignored me and didn't even say as much as a "I wish you well too." Why does the majority of our generation shy away/ignore honest communication? Why do we choose to ignore and passive-aggressively hold in how we feel? I could have let things rock on, but I'd rather be honest and know now than keep hoping he'll feel the same and stop his immature behavior. Or, another scenario, get into a relationship with someone who will always treat me this way. Life is too short to play games and hide how you feel/who you really are. I don't understand why so many people are scared of it and those who communicate this way.

It is because of how people communicate with one another. Example, you doing that through texting, had you CALLED he most likely would have engaged in a conversation for a few minutes. (it is true he might have ignored your call or just hung up, but not likely)
I for one don't shy away from honest and open communication and wouldn't date a girl who did.0

How about we start with the fact that communication with each other has gone to the shits because of the mis-use of technology.
If someone wants a frank answer, they are going to have to do their communication face to face.
There's a world of computers and phones, someone could hide behind when replying back with a couple of words for a response.0
