    Default Dealing with not responding to "hi"?

    This has happened to me a lot of times, and I find it most common in a school environment. i.e. college. I am a generally friendly person and if I know someone (even by sight, i.e. in one of my classes), I say hi to them, or acknowledge them in some way. Most of the time people do respond back, but some of the time they completely ignore me.
    This doesn't upset or bother me, but what is the truly alpha way to deal with it if you encounter them again? The way I deal with it is just not say "hi" again but smile instead.
    Do you go as far as calling them out on it? I find it odd and awkward that you spend time with someone in a class for 4 months and you don't greet/acknowledge them when you meet them on the hall for example, or in the library, as if they are a complete stranger.

    I'm in college too bro and I just think it's on them.

    You can't always possibly walk up to them and make a conversation. You might be busy, running to a class, etc. So sometimes you just say hi, wave, smile or wink.

    Unfortunately, school environment is full of socially incompetent (so to speak) people who might be introverts who wanna avoid the smallest kind of social interaction, or egoists who think they deserve some higher level of acknowledgement or in rare cases, both.

    As you said you shouldn't be upset about this. If being social makes you happy, you always smile, always say hi, don't let anyone affect that otherwise.

    About calling them out, if she's hot, why not?
    It's not about who I was or who I'm going to become.

    It's about who I am. Do it right here, right now.
