Dating an emotionally unavailable person who is dating emily deschanel
Even when I was in my ten-year-online-dating-slut phase, I always wanted to fall in love.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.Just because someone might’ve been your soul mate in previous eras doesn’t mean he or she is right for you today. At first, some of these signs may be more obvious than others.Perhaps the person can’t or won’t reciprocate or is simply oblivious, a frustrating irony you must accept. It’s tricky: we tend to show our best selves in the honeymoon stage of a romance.We need to be challenged, we need to know that you’ll accept nothing less than everything.”This is why I tell you repeatedly to act like the CEO and treat men like interns. It’s all valid and acceptable, but consider this, I’ve turned down the handful of date requests from decent guys I’ve gotten over the past year .
It’s what most normal people do who don’t know how to deal with their internal upset.
For me, the moment my relationships got hard, I’d have a very hard time showing my genuine interest, so I put on a fake smile and said things were fine.
But inside I was truly losing interest mostly because I didn’t know how to deal with the relationship challenges. The only thing I ever owned was that I didn’t want to call her my girlfriend.
I’d say I was into them and I was pretty convincing, but a day later, I’d be annoyed and irritable and just want to be alone or with guy friends because I thought they were “easier.” Deep down, men like this are very ambivalent about being close with a woman for a long period of time.
The older a man gets, the more he hates this about himself, and he often stays stuck by staying in the relationship, but giving very little.
Thus, underneath all of these behaviors lie unconscious motives that serve to keep him safe in his comfort zone.
