Why do people read messages and don’t respond

So what are the reasons behind that weird behavior?
Here are some of the possible reasons:

  • 1) The person wants to ignore you on intention: If a person wants to ignore you , because you were too pushy for example, then they might read your message and not reply. In such a case the person will be intending to let you know that they want to ignore you. See Why women don’t like needy men
  • 2) They subconsciously want to ignore you: If the person was too nice to ignore someone then his subconscious mind might actually let him forget about the message you sent him. In such a case the person might apologize later for not responding while in fact his subconscious mind could have done it on intention. See why we remember certain things but forget others
  • 3) They want to make you feel bad: Some people might ignore messages on intention in order to make a person feel bad. In such a case the main purpose behind the action is to inflict harm on the sender by hurting them emotionally
  • 4) They are too afraid to reply: Sometimes people don’t respond when they are too scared to face someone or too afraid to get into an unpleasant conversation. In such a case the person reads the message out of curiosity but ignores it because of fear
  • 5) They want to avoid unpleasant interactions: Some people have very little tolerance for unpleasant emotions. Those people might avoid replying to others if they believed that some kind of emotional pain will be involved
