Dating emotionally unavailable girl
Please also note that posts have been gender neutral since autumn 2010.** In my book Mr Unavailable and the Fallback Girl, I share some of the most common signs and behaviours that indicate that you’re involved with a Mr Unavailable – an emotionally – and often spiritually and physically – unavailable man.
If he’s not showing up and you’re putting up with it, it’s not his fault. You can’t expect him to value you like a girlfriend if you don’t insist on being treated like a proper girlfriend. I feel that all the posturing and self abnegation involved in thinking like a man and “being a challenge” has conditioned me to want men less and less to the point where I won’t even go out with anyone. Aside from the long term male friendships I have, I’ve never been so thoroughly turned off by the idea of a man’s company. Maybe it’s just a phase, but I’m curious to know if this is an extreme felt by any other women on here.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.Understanding this is essential to understanding the emotionally unavailable man…Women often seem to assume that because a man is single, educated, employed, handsome, possessed with great taste, a great wardrobe and is a generally good guy, he is automatically on the market. Says the author about women who ignore the signs:“They figure if they can determine why we’re emotionally unavailable, then they can just help us address that issue and all will be right with the world.All of this behaviour allows him to run things on his terms and manage down your expectations – it’s how achieves The Status Quo.
