If your man has a tendency to ignore you or not take you seriously, you’ll want to know how to get your boyfriend’s attention. Here’s how.

Sometimes guys are the worst. I know, we all love them but as boyfriends, they can often need a little help understanding the wants of women. And that want is to be heard and taken seriously. In order to help them figure it out, you’ll have to learn how to get your boyfriend’s attention.


It’s not easy. Girls don’t always understand how guys’ minds work and vice versa. So in order to get him to take you seriously, you’ll have to learn how to connect with him in a way he’ll understand.

Some guys do take you seriously but just don’t show it

Not all guys are ignoring you. If your boyfriend seems like he’s ignoring you, all he might need is a little reminder to pay attention. Sometimes, he might’ve been listening the entire time but just not showing it.

The best way to figure this one out is to talk to him. Ask if he’s really ignoring you or just not speaking up. Usually, he’ll say he was just not speaking up so challenge him a little by asking what you said or what your goals are. If he can’t name them, he was definitely ignoring you.


How to get your boyfriend’s attention and keep it

If your boyfriend’s attention is wandering or you just can’t seem to get him to take you seriously, these tips can help. Don’t settle for a man who doesn’t think everything you say is the most important. Make sure you’re heard.

#1 Don’t nag. Nagging won’t get you anywhere with a guy. If your boyfriend feels like you’re nagging him to pay more attention, he’ll get annoyed. To him, it doesn’t sound like a legitimate concern to you but rather like you just want to change him.


Instead, focus on talking to him calmly and seriously about the issue. If all you’re saying is, “Why don’t you pay attention to me anymore?” while whining, he’ll feel attacked. And when that happens, no one wins.
