Dating an unemotional person
As a woman dating an emotionally distant man, you run the risk of being shut down repeatedly and every effort you make to get closer can be rebuffed. He’s not there, you’re confused, and you end up on an emotional roller-coaster. What you know is that he’s not treating you right, but there are so many options as to why. Now, I wasn’t even going to touch this one, but since I know how people are, let me say it: if he already has a girlfriend, fiancée, or – God forbid – a wife, then all of his behavior suddenly makes sense. The worst part of it is that you don’t know what’s happening. The number of women who want to know how to deal with men and this issue is mind-numbing.And yet, today, I’m going to continue to do my part to put myself out of business, by sharing this really well-written piece from Single Black on what emotionally unavailable men are thinking and doing when you’re dating them.(Thanks to the ladies of FOCUS Coaching for the link!) Here are a handful of excellent take-aways that I want you to internalize ASAP, so you will no longer waste time on another dead-end guy: 1.
“Now the fact that we are emotionally unavailable doesn’t mean that we’re no longer desirous of a woman’s attention and affection.
Then, they suddenly show up and it’s all hot again. I can tell you from years of seeing women have this issue, that if he cheats you. Believe me, jumping on seemingly unavailable men with a muddy or newly changed relationship status is never good news.
It sucks to be in that position, so don’t do that to another woman or to yourself. After seeing countless numbers of break-ups, I should know. He was absent for every single one (or most) of those things?
While I have personally never dated a man who was emotionally unavailable, one of my closest friends has and I remember the emotional roller coaster she went through.
I want to share this journey she went through with you so that you can identify whether your man is emotionally unavailable and if so, what you should do.
