Whether it’s because of upbringing or past trauma, some men are emotionally unavailable. The funny thing about this trait, however, is that the guys who pull away actually often crave intimate relationships. Unfortunately, however, there isn’t much you can do to change their attitude. The only person that can truly change the emotionally unavailable man is the man himself. Here’s how you’ll know.
He’s freaked out by romance
He won’t take you on dates, will avoid all cutesy behavior, and when you bring up relationships, you may even detect actual discomfort in his body language. The emotionally unavailable man avoids deep connections at all costs.
He’s only looking for a “for now”
Not a forever. He’s looking for fun, and usually, that just means a “friends with benefits” scenario. If he only contacts you for a hookup, he’s not ready to be intimate (emotionally).
He has short answers to long questions
Emotionally unavailable men may seem elusive and mysterious, but it is only a mask for their fear of being exposed for who they truly are. To keep this distance, they are careful to never reveal too much about themselves.
He doesn’t try to get to know you
Such men keep their relationships at a comfortable distance, and that includes not knowing much about the person on the other end either.
He blames others
If a guy who is emotionally available is called out for his shady behavior, he will be quick to turn the tables on someone else. In a relationship, he may accuse his partner of clinginess or neediness, even if he knows their concerns are legitimate. The emotionally unavailable man is not ready to face the reality of who he truly is.
