    adjective

    Hi teachers,

    I need some help here.
    What is the adjective that describes a person who doesn't care about something?

    For instance, Amie tried to dress up for her husband but he didn't show any appreciation nor he cared about it. What word can we use to describe such behaviour?There might be various responses. I've been trying to recall a word but it eludes me somehow.Hope you can help me out.

    thanks for your effort.

    nonchalant, unconcerned. A thesaurus on these and Clark's words might help.
