Whether we mean to or not, sometimes we behave in a way that is displeasing to the male of interest. The spectrum of actions which may qualify as "inappropriate behavior" spans anywhere from drinking too much and crying to mentioning he spray tans in front of his friends... and lets not forget the golden oldie: flirting with another guy in front of him. Oops. While these incidents aren't deal breakers (considering where you fall on the hot vs crazy graph) don't be alarmed when your texts and e-mails go unanswered for a period of time.
Neglect is the worst punishment and they know it. Acknowledge your bad behavior and try to learn from your mistakes. Cease attempting to make contact until they give you the go-ahead or it will prolong the torture. Try to enjoy the time away from your situation and concentrate on yourself. Great distractions could be a Millionaire Matchmaker marathon, relaxing facial, or drinks with that guy with the big biceps.
