Dating an emotionally unavailable man
Even if he or she seems to be doing everything “right,” sometimes you need to trust your gut and use your head.I have gone through this before, and I will go through heartache again.Each time I pick up the pieces of my broken heart I learn a little bit more about who I am, what I deserve, and what I am capable of giving someone.I can rest my head each night knowing I stayed true to myself, and you can too. Trying to fix someone else chips away at your soul.“When someone tells you who they are, believe them.” ~Maya Angelou After having been a rebound girl the summer of 2013, I swore I would never get involved with another emotionally unavailable man who had baggage and was a poor communicator.
And yet most women who are actively dating have had the accusation lobbed their way.After a heavy night of drinking he confessed that he was scared to get into another relationship because he associates them with pain and feeling trapped. It dawned on me that he probably had one foot out the door the entire time.He admitted that he puts up walls, shuts down, and he just couldn’t bear to go through another break-up again. Why did I, yet again, get ahead of myself and trust someone that I barely knew?The other weekend, my friend had a drunken bar makeout with a dude who turned out to have a "sort of" girlfriend.Before that, she spent a few months dating a man who — dickhead alert — was secretly married with a child.
