I decided to use this picture because besides it being a fun memory, it’s also the Webster’s pictorial definition of exactly what it feels like to date an emotionally unavailable man.
I never knew what “emotionally unavailable” meant until a few years ago.
As frustrating as it can be, it may be more useful to try and move on.
(Think of the classic, “I met the girl/guy of my dreams on vacation.”) The fact that the person they long for is out of reach is often the spark that keeps the relationship going.I felt like I was a sneeze away from a padded wall and straight jacket.I turned on the radio and it was accidentally on an AM radio station. Reading this is like looking into A mirror of the past!Sometimes it seems that they are lacking sensitivity or even basic human empathy but unlike someone who is deliberately trying to be mean or invoke a jealous reaction, they simply do not grasp they may be hurting someone.In that case, be prepared for the fact that they may never “get” that they hurt you or anyone else.Despite what some think, emotionally distant people don’t always come across that way—at least, not at first.
