No matter how good a person maybe, we all screw up from time to time and that's unavoidable. The part is the people they annoyed usually don't tell if they're annoyed. No worries, we got you covered. Here are some signs that warn you when people are annoyed at you.
An unreturned phone call is one thing. A missed emailresponse or two, hey, it happens. But when you can’t even get a text reply out of them anymore, it might be time to admit that you’re no longer on their shortlist of close confidantes.
In general, it’s a good thing if somebody isn’t getting so close that you feel like your personal space is being invaded. But it can work the other way as well. If they’re noticeably moving away from you if you try to get too close, or maintaining such a larger-than-usual distance from you that it starts to feel weird, this could be a subconscious signal. When you take one step forward and they take one step back, they’re telling you, “Back off, buster!”
You only fight with the ones you love. That may not make much sense in theory, but there’s more truth there than you realize. If somebody argues with you, it’s because they legitimately care about your opinions and want to change your perspective. If people you consider your friends never push back and argue with you, even when you know that they know you’re wrong, that likely means they’ve given up on you.

A sigh isn’t just a sigh, at least according to researchers out of Norway, who found in a 2008 study that people tend to sigh when they’re in a negative mood, or as a “sign of disappointment, defeat, frustration, boredom, and longing.” So, if someone sighs in your presence, it might be a red flag that they’re less than overjoyed with your company.

Yes, most of what’s on social media is fake. As countless studies have shown, people tend to present a socially desirable reflection of themselves on sites like Facebook and Instagram. It may not be the reality, but it’s the reality they want to present to the world. And if you’re not included in any of it, well, that’s a bad sign.
If someone is suddenly aurally challenged, that doesn’t alwaysmean they don’t want to talk to you anymore. But there’s a chance that they’re sparing your feelings that they don’t like what you just said. After all, pretending not to hear somebody is easier (and certainly more tactful) than just ignoring them outright.
The physical touch of another human being causes our levels of oxytocin to rise, which reduces fear and increases trust, generosity, and empathy. Refusing that contact, or insisting on the least-possible level of physical interaction, can only mean that someone is not ready or willing to feel that level of empathy and trust with you.
Just learning that everyone you know was at the “party of the year” last weekend? It might’ve just been an accident, especially if the host insists they “totally emailed you an invite.” But if it happens more than once, you might be getting left off the guest list for a reason.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “The eyes of men converse as much their tongues.” So if someone is looking anywhere but at you, chances are they’d rather be anywhere but with you.
It’s a classic gesture of defensiveness, a way of creating a barrier between you and something (or someone) you don’t particularly care for. It’s the opposite of opening and welcoming. It’s saying, “No. Stay away. Whatever you’re saying right now, I don’t want to hear it.”
