Dating emotionally distant man
"My therapist thinks I'm only attracted to emotionally unavailable men," she told me afterward.This pissed me off, because people used to suggest that to me too, judgmentally, like I was broken and masochistically handpicking guys who'd poke at my wounds. When really, my friend isn't single because she was attracted to two men who weren't ready to commit to her.Now that I'm in a healthy relationship, I look back at all my past relationships and realize what B. She's single because she hasn't met the right guy yet.
Being emotionally unavailable doesn’t mean he’s dead.
It also doesn’t mean we’ve lost the ability to perceive attractiveness and beauty and it most definitely doesn’t mean we’re no longer interested in sex.
We will want all of those things, and we’re still going to work toward getting all of those things. Maybe it was our overt actions (not claiming you as a girlfriend). Maybe it was our actual words (I’m not looking for anything serious right now), but you didn’t pay attention.
There is no need to also bring the subject "where is this going" or "are we exclusive?
" if he has said it once that he wasn't ready for relationship. The less you are attached and act eager, the safer he feels and the more he wants to come closer and spend more time with you.
