So I've had my first set of rats since March. They have been treated the same and given the same love and affection. But for whatever reason Nim has not bonded to me as well.

She doesn't like coming out of the cage.
She doesn't like me playing with her.
She rarely comes to me for treats (she waits for Ace to stash hers and then steals it)

The only time I get acknowledgement from her is when I have food. But as I said I can rarely tempt her to me with it.

Rats all have unique personalities :) That coupled with experiences they may have had in the past can affect many things. But just like with people you have more confident rats & some who are more shy.

Some rats might take alot more time and effort to bond with. Just keep at it. :)

I am adopting a super shy rat this week. I think she has been a challenge to rehome because of her temperament. I will be interested to hear if you have any success.
