A Scorpio man’s silent treatment is the most intense. You will notice when he’s actively avoiding you.
Be sure he’s giving you the silent treatment before you react. Interactions will “feel” different if he’s just temporarily distracted and not ignoring you.
Always remain calm when a Scorpio man is giving you the silent treatment. If he’s mad at you, getting angry will make things worse.
Give your Scorpio man the space he needs. Let him calm down. Apologize if you already know what you did wrong. That will go a long way if you want him to talk to you again soon.
Your Scorpio man might snap out of his bad mood if you ask how he is or let him know you miss him. Sometimes he just needs a reminder that you care.

Keep Your Calm
If your Scorpio man goes silent, stay calm. Don’t immediately jump to conclusions.
Don’t start sending angry messages asking why he’s ignoring you. If he’s not ignoring you, you’ll be sending angry messages for no reason.
Stay calm even if you know for a fact that your Scorpio man is giving you the silent treatment. Anger won’t do you any good the majority of the time.
If he’s messing with you, he wants you to get angry. Don’t give him the satisfaction.
If your Scorpio man ignores you because you upset him, getting angry won’t fix anything. You will likely just upset him more.
Throw Aside Assumptions
Don’t assume the worst just because a Scorpio man stopped texting suddenly. He’s not always giving you the silent treatment when he goes quiet.
Scorpio men like to make it obvious that they’re ignoring you in particular. He’ll do certain things to make sure you know he’s giving you the silent treatment.
If it’s late at night and he stopped replying, he probably just fell asleep. Send a “goodnight” text and wait until morning. He’ll likely start responding again.
When he’s just busy or stressed out, he’ll be ignoring everyone. He won’t be posting on social media. You won’t be the only one he’s ghosting.
If he’s giving you the silent treatment, he’ll purposely leave you on read over and over again. He’ll make sure you get a read receipt for each message you send, and he won’t reply.
He will be active in group chats. He’ll post on social media so that you know he’s online and available.
When a Scorpio man is mad at you, a sincere apology is often the best way to calm him down.
Scorpio men will sometimes ignore you after you’ve upset them. If you said something hurtful, he’s just as likely to walk off and give you the silent treatment as he is to confront you about it.
If you know that you said something rude or hurtful, apologize to your Scorpio man. A simple “I’m sorry” won’t cut it. Learning how to apologize to a Scorpio man takes a lot of time and effort.
Don’t bother apologizing if you don’t know why he’s upset. He doesn’t like generic apologies.
Your Scorpio man might be offended if you don’t know why he’s mad at you. He’s going to be even more offended if you try to brush him off by saying, “I’m sorry if I did something to upset you.”
If you know what you did, acknowledge your mistake. Let your Scorpio man know how sorry you are for what you did. Tell him you’ll do better in the future. Ask what you can do to make it up to him.
Ask How He Is
What should you do when a Scorpio man goes silent? One thing you can do is text him and ask how he’s doing.
His response (or lack thereof) can help show you what to do next.
If he reads the message and doesn’t respond, then you’ll know for sure that he’s giving you the silent treatment.
He might be giving you the silent treatment because you upset him. Reaching out will show him that you care. It will also let him know that you don’t know what’s wrong. He’ll realize he has to talk to you if he wants an apology.
Your Scorpio man might also be giving you the silent treatment because he wants attention. Asking how he is will give him the attention he wants. He’ll start responding again.
Don’t Ignore Him Back
How does a Scorpio man react when you ignore him? Most of the time, it drives him crazy.
If he’s ignoring you and you ignore him back, though, that won’t make him start talking to you again. He’ll see it as you challenging him.
Scorpio men can engage in “silent treatment battles” far longer than almost anyone else. He’s willing to wait for an apology or other reaction from you.
He won’t be the first one to back down. You’ll get his attention, but he’s not going to start talking to you again just because he realized you’re also ignoring him.
If you are both ignoring one another, you’re not going to get anywhere. One of you will break eventually, and it’s likely not going to be the Scorpio man.
Give Him Some Space
Sometimes, all he needs is some space when a Scorpio stops talking to you. He might want some time to himself if he’s feeling angry or overwhelmed.
A Scorpio man might not always be mad at you when he gives you the silent treatment. He might be upset in general. He may be in a lousy mood and unfairly taking it out on you.
Let him know that you’re there if he wants to talk, then leave him alone. Give him time to collect himself. Allow him to work through his emotions on his own if that’s what he wants.
Don’t Make Him Jealous
Making a Scorpio man jealous on purpose is like playing with fire. It’s going to end badly.
Don’t start flirting with other men in front of him if your Scorpio man is ignoring you. It won’t make him suddenly start paying attention to you again.
He’s likely to get angry if he sees you’re trying to make him jealous. If he’s giving you the silent treatment because you upset him, you’ll end up hurting him more.
You might think this will be an excellent way to get his attention. It’s not! There are better ways to show your Scorpio man that you want him to pay attention to you.
Tell Him How You Feel
It’s frustrating when a Scorpio man is hot and cold all the time. You’ll likely grow tired of it if your Scorpio man is always going back and forth between doting on you and giving you the silent treatment.
Let your Scorpio man know how it makes you feel when he gives you the silent treatment. That might be enough to make him talk to you.
Some Scorpio men are in the habit of being passive-aggressive. The silent treatment might be how they get what they want with other people in their lives.
Be honest with him about how it makes you feel when he ignores you. Offer some suggestions for other ways to let you know he’s upset or that he wants attention.
He will listen to you if he cares about you. If he continues to ignore you, that might be a sign your relationship isn’t going to last long.
Let Him Calm Down
Sometimes, a Scorpio man will give you the silent treatment instead of picking a fight. He’ll argue with you if he needs to, but it’s not his favorite thing to do.
Let your Scorpio man calm down if he seems angry. Ignoring you may be the best way for him to deal with his emotions right now.
Most of the time, a Scorpio man will want time to gather his emotions before talking over an important issue.
If you two just fought and he’s giving you the silent treatment, he needs to calm down. Don’t bother him or demand that he talk to you until he’s ready.
The silent treatment isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes it’s what you both need so you can clear your heads and have a calm discussion later.
Move On If Needed
If a Scorpio man acts like he doesn’t care about you and is constantly giving you the silent treatment, it might be time to move on.
You can’t fix anything if your Scorpio man refuses to talk to you. If you’ve given him space, reached out to apologize, let him know how he’s making you feel, etc., and he still won’t talk to you, let it go.
Let him know that you’re willing to talk. Tell him that you’re tired of being ignored, though. Make sure he understands that you’re not going to chase after him any longer.
That might kick your Scorpio man into gear and make him realize he’s being unreasonable.
If it doesn’t, be prepared to move on. Find somebody who will be more open with you.
