It depends.
Dissatisfied- upset or annoyed
Unsatisfied- not fully content


It depends on the sentence. I don't really have an answer, but if you gave me a sentence and asked me which you should use, I think I would be able to tell you which one. Sorry! You can also check out this though:


Hope it helps! So sorry!

Dissatisfied usually relates to how a person or people feel, unsatisfied relates more to a "thing" not being sated.


So, for example, a hungry person may be dissatisfied with the amount of food he had been given. But his hunger had been left "unsatisfied".
