He was probably trying to be positive, thinking his feelings would eventually work themselves out. They did, just not in your favor. Something happened to make him bolt. He was playing you all this time. Your vibe sort of changed. He only wanted sex.
This is the classic move. A guy shows mad interest in you and then after getting sex, he bolts. He was just after the chase.
How To Keep A Guy Chasing (Why He Lost Interest And Stopped Chasing)
This is Mr. He was still on Tinder. He might be the kind of guy who keeps his options open and gets swayed by other potential GFs. He still has feelings for his ex. You might have missed the signs, but they were probably there. If he got with you shortly after his traumatic breakup with his ex or he was often mentioning her red flag: he got emotional talking about her on your first datehe might have decided to go back to her for another shot, leaving any chance with you unfulfilled.
He was only interested in himself.

Finally, friends and family can be an issue. If her friends absolutely suck and are very dominant in her life, that can be a problem as can overbearing parents. The flip-side is that sometimes you are only slightly attracted to a woman but over time you discover things about her which increases your attraction, it works both ways. Great article, thank you SO much!
I have been talking to a fantastic guy and he was so interested and intentional. He seemed excited about it, and when we did meet up and hang out he seemed to be having a lot of fun, but also came off as less interested and very hesitant to talk about anything in the future.
My question is- I have one last opportunity to talk to him and now that I realize this, is there any hope of salvaging it? My situation was sooooooooooo devastating because he seemed so sure about me then all the suddenhe switched off like a light bulb. We had been on 4 dates and had talked for 2 months every single day before our dates. He told me he was so sure about me and said that we are dating exclusively. He had me meet his mom, his friends, and took me to work events.
After 4 months, he suggested that we should move in together. Then the most shocking thing happenedhe flipped off immediately. I asked him what was wrong and he said he thinks we just moved too fast. I tried to get a more direct response i. He had no response other than it had nothing to do with me and that I did nothing wrong. He said it was all his fault. I realize I was dumb for following his lead but I thought we both were ready for something serious.
We had all these important conversations that made me believe that we were prepared to handle this. Every time he suggested that we do something, I always asked him if he was sure and then we would talk about in great detail for hours before doing it. Since we covered all the pros and cons; likes and dislikes so much I just assumed that he was really ready and really sure that this was the right decision. The shocked of my life. Why i chose to live the way I did is my fault.
His problem has always been he never had any interest in sex or intimacy,The sex we did have was nothing to write home about, and in all those 50 years we may have had sex a dozen times. He had no interest in sex or our relationship. I was a married widow, now in all those years I should have just left him and this was my fault. He never would have cared if I had left him. He was such a cold and uncaring person, never once starting a conversation! He worked just about every day, had no friends.
Things were different before we were married, he seemed to appreciate me. But it was all smoke and mirrors, things changed as soon as we said I do.
No wonder there are so many lonely people. Its all to complicated now days. Rushing in and having sex then losing interest. Couples jump into relationships without being friends first sharing long talks doing things together with others being respectful of feelings thru good and bad times, then if its more it will blossom into something real and lasting. Historically women have been objectified. How about if the guy, if he really cares about this woman, steps up to the plate and says, everything is going well, we are both equally vulnerable.
Give me a break. This article said men are too stupid to understand why they lose interest. If a man has to leave town for his dream job and needs to break up with his gf and she gets angry and makes it all about her, then she doesnt love him and loves her fantasy relationship more than who he is.
Let him go and move on, she is using him for emotional ego boosts. The article is simply stating men detect false love and female issues. Women also get pissed when guys use them for sex or get turned of when a guy has weird issues come to surface. Sometimes men pull away for personal reasons and it might have nothing to do with you.
In fact I bet this is far more common than women think. Instead of giving him benefit of doubt, why not recognize some men as incapable of loving and sustained connection.
Trust me, this exists, and unfortunately much prevalent. Maybe it is the true nature of male psyche, but now that women will tolerate anything, and make it extremely easy for men, most have no distance to travel to connect to their own well of feelings. Again, some men are by nature more connected and loving than others. But you cannot expect a typical alpha male read- less evolved and operating more with lizard brain to access love without going the distance.
To me, it sounds like a bad deal to be loved conditionally. For some women, it is an enjoyable challenge. Unless you want to learn and experiment and test your own boundaries, there is no point in getting into relationship with someone who you wont like relating to. You will also find yourself relating to him based on his wants and needs, naturally and instinctively. You and your one or ones will adjust and evolve as you relate and vibe organically. This is not a hunt, unless people have ulterior motives eg.
It is human relationships. Examine nonromantic relationships in your life, see what insights you come up with. Keep developing and keep making mistakes. The one for you will love you for you and will allow room for correcting mistakes and misunderstandings. And so will you. Great article! Exactly what I needed to read to feel better. My ex was a good guy in the beginning. In the first 6 months everything was great then we became a couple and I started demanding much more.
Slowly and surely he started to pull away. By the end of the relationship he had completely stopped putting effort into making me happy. When I would ask if he lost interest he could never give me a honest answer. I thought I knew it all about men until now thank you. Great advice! Going through this right nowfeeling insecure but knowing I am part of this problem.
Thanks for setting us straight and reinforcing what we need to hear. People NEVER stop hereThe town is to expensive for single women to live here ,an the town is a Flat Tire full of cops an photo ticket lights at dollars a ticket,a commuter town,ppl driving both directions north an south for work.
I have decided to move back to Denver ,where there is lotsa activities for single men an plenty of single women,an things to do, will rent my my home out at a later date as i have another house in Denver to live in,at my age i want to enjoy Life AGAIN. Def written by a boy, thx for this sharing, the first time I get to understand their behaviours. But, isn;t it just a matter of girls falling in love first and sad to find that boys have yet not?
And isnt it ironic that boys hang out with girls that they like, but when girls like them back thus they start to expect a confirmation of the relationshipthey are scared back.
My response to that was we decided to live together and be in this relationship for good or bad but for him is not possible. So leaves me wondering what have I done to deserve this and be treated this way? I almost read each and every comment! Alpha males build up amazing life since they have very good genes and we want to combine it with your beauty so our kids be the best kids in terms of genes possible.
This guy that I met in college but graduated before me wanted to date me after I graduated and I said yes. This was 3 months ago and we would talk every now and then since.
Just two weeks ago he was texting me saying he missed me. Im a guy and this very thing happened to me with a recent date.
I could never pinpoint it. So, that is over. I really like reading all your works.
I think the other thing to be stressed in your articles is how to make yourself interesting. In addition to being the brightest and most confident version of yourself and always making an effort, go get piano lessons, or learn a language etc. For the women, I would be careful about taking this advice.
For men that have problems with commitment, yes overtly showing that you want and expect commitment will make those type of men run. For men that are looking for commitment, they understand where you are coming from, appreciate it, and will be understanding, even if you are overdoing it. It tells the man you really want to be with him. It is so flattering. So you can move on and find the guy that does? Ladies, be yourself. My problem in dating has been with women who seem to be following this advice - to the extreme.
I contact them for the dates and communications. They will respond but never initiate contact. I suggest the dates on where we go and what we do and the times. They seem to be going along for the ride. No signals that they like being with me or showing any appreciation. After about five dates or one month, I find my answer. I run a test of their interest in me by waiting for them to initiate contact with me. Such as the next time we communicate, it will be them that initiates the communication.
In every case I tried this, I never hear from them again. I have had relationships with women like this. That never scares me away. In fact it draws me closer. It ends up being other cts that cause the relationship to not be right for me. The driving factor here is I am a man that wants commitment. So again ladies, be yourself. If you are not, you will attract a man who is compatible with whom you are pretending to be.
Or lose the right man for you because you are not being yourself who the man would have been attracted to. Absolutely agree. They can do one ASAP! My my can I have your number? Thanks a lot for writing something like this. Very encouraging. I do take initiatives every now and then.
I am not afraid of being rejected. But after a few rejects, I thought I might have got the game all wrong. Thanks for your encouragement to be myself. I will wait for the lucky guy to come along! Thanks a lot! We met online and chatted for a bit and then we met up and things where good. Had a third date lined up. Then his father has a stroke. I understand, family first.
So he now wants to be friends and I get nothing. Is he not into me? He seems genuine. Help please.
So true. Great point. Its also like this when it comes to guys. When the guy is trying too hard I also get a feeling of running away. But instead of not knowing why I know exactly why. The guy seem to be needy, desperate and way too eager to get me into a relationship with him and why would a healthy person do that? Whats the rush? He doesnt even know me. That makes me question his intentions and makes me run away. In the past my intuition was correct and I paid a high price for not listening and instead of running away giving him another shot.
Fantastic article, Sabrina.
A couple of questions: is there anything I can do as the person losing interest to counteract this situation? So I was in a relationship for 7 months and everything was going great. He was the one that made it official and exclusive relationship after 2 months. He was the one that spoke about the future and told me he was serious about me etc. Not once was I ever pushy or forced anything. He introduced me to his parents. Then shortly after that he started avoiding calling and seeing me but would still message every day.
Was I right to ignore him and was this guy messing me around? Guy sounds immature and is backing away from this relationship without giving you proper closure. So sorry Leanne, what a jerk. Not so much a fan of this article.
Again, a woman's emotions do not CAUSE a guy to lose interest. A guy's lack of interest CAUSES him to back off from a woman's emotions. And there's nothing a woman can do to change that lack of interest, either, by the way, because it almost never has to . A guy can lose interest in a woman he's dating if he was never really interested in her to begin with. If he was always talking about himself and not really focusing on you, he's clearly the type of guy who wants all the attention, and then when he's had his fix he'll move on to another woman who will hopefully give him attention all.
I was seeing this guy for a few months. Everything was going great. He said he was having fun with me and he liked me. He invited me to dinner at his house. We were fooling around on the couch. He wanted to have sex of course. Just a month. I said I want to wait a bit until we get to know each other a bit better. Was this my fault? Most likely yes. Of course they know why they get turned off. Could be the exact same things as what turns a girl off a guy.
This is actually a well-written eye opening article. I agree w John. He would have done the same even if u had sex ww him. All i can say is boring sex with these emotionally immature or shallow older men. All these Bitches want Is your Money Guys why waist our money on them invest it in your retirement to th Hell with these Bitches. They like saying they have been rapes why so they can get your money by falsely suing you.
No doubt you both sound rich. Maybe you should go to night school and work on your GED or brush up on your reading and grammar, and women might like you. Not all women are after money, some of us have our own jobs. You seem like a very sad man who needs to work on his grammar and spirituality. You poor thing. Told me he wants to marry me but his parents wants him to marry from his village. We love each other but I didnt show it too openly to him, I would play hard to get, use some harsh words on him then later apologize.
Suddenly he told me his parents went to pay the bride price of the girl, I was so scared because I dont want to loose him that I went to meet someone for advise, 3 days later what I told the person went viral. He was so mad at me that when I asked us to talk he pushed me away.
On the other way round, he knows what I can do, he knows am not actually like that, he knows my ins and outs, he knows am good and ok yet he tagged his reason was that I sent him bad messages.
I apologized and he saw how sincere I am yet he said he cant go back, now I am confused I dont know what to do, pls I need advise, I find it difficult to sleep, lost my appetite and my head really hurts. Unfortunately, men have an idealof who they want to settle withthey also have an ideal of who they want to have sex with. Both arent one in the same. I give up. Next guy will have to chase me down and prove to be a good honest faithful man.
No more guessing for me. I can see exactly now the moment when the guy I was seeing pull off. And realized i wanted more than just dating after 3 months. Which I thought would be ok. I know now he isnt ready to move tp that level. Or that could be his way of avoiding it. Thats ok. I found out before i over ran him.
It would be nice if everyone could be totally honest in the dating phases of a relationship. She should be able to say it. I met a guy we are both middle aged and right away he said he wanted to get married. But several months later into the relationship I was onboard and was invested in the idea, and when I expressed this, he backed waaaaay off. I got the feeling that as soon as I wanted to be in the same place relationship wise as him, he shut offFrustrating. I think some guys are just too shallow.
I hated this article. Already from the get go, some guys do not want to commit. So, what if a girl fantasizes, so do guys. You have to ask yourself what happened or what you could have done to make him question his desire to marry you. Does he have any psychological or physiological disorders that may make social or relationship situations a challenge for him?
Do you have any of those things or mental illnesses? Regardless, bottom line is that most of the time, when someone is doing something in any type of relationship, its usually a REACTION to something the other person has done or said. The type of guys that women claim to want are the same ones that are rejected and labeled as creepy, weird, awkward, stalkerish, etc. Are accepting and giving those good guys a chance!
I just read this article, and I found out that this article is really related to my current situation. I like this one guy, and at first he was quite friendly. After a while, he pulled back, and never wanted to talk to me or have any connection with me. I always wonder why does he being friendly to others but not to me?
All points that you mentioned are totally what I am doing right now. Oh my then I put myself into his shoes, and I realized that I would do the same if I were him. Right now, I am telling myself to stop analyzing, overthinking, plotting, everything. I am training myself to just chill and relax. I want to stop doing all these things.
I know I can do it. This is really such an eye opening article. I am not sure if I did this to the guy I have been seeing yet, I still tried to play it cool last time I saw him. However, I felt like it was a little more forced and awkward and I consciously felt it almost to the day when I made that switch. I was just enjoying it and having fun and then all of a sudden I realized I did like him and started thinking a lot about it and overanalyzing things.
Then I hung out with him again and could not figure out why I could not just be the way I was anymore, just whatever and nonchalant. I always hate when I get to that point and now I have feelings of wanting to run away from him because this is when it usually goes downhill anyways.
I wish the article elaborated on if there is a way to fix or avoid this. It pretty much just says that women do this and no matter how cool you try and play it that he will still pick up on it and book it. I just hope that now knowing what is going on will help me relax and return to my old self.
I was so happy that the guy I like listened to me yesterday that I texted him today to thank him and wish him a good day. What I thought was well meaning made me realize that I was also seeking validation. I feel like this is normal and part of being humanbut is too much gratitude a turn off and taken as ingenuine? Everyone needs and desires validation. I think relationships are about finding out what makes the other person feel validated, appreciated, and loved.
Everyone has an insecure switch that can be flipped on or off. No matter how secure and confident you are, everyone has the capacity to feel insecure in a relationship. So you seek validation. So you push and he pulls away even more until it ends for good. There are ways in which each party could better approach this issue. Most men like to keep you around while they are figuring things outbecause at this point they are still afraid of losing you and afraid that they may make the wrong decision to leave you.
Very rarely do they ask for space during this time. Unfortunately most men ask for space once they are ready to leave you. Men however LIE. Women panic because we want the truth and we value communication.
We also want to know what we did wrong, because unbeknownst to us, everything was perfect! And here is where we go wrong. Make the decision for him and leave. Now is the time to text that other guy whose been trying to take you out. Go flirt with cute guys, go get sexy have a girls night out and go get happy! Go rediscover your value! The truth of the matter is that, a lot of men will start to wonder about you once you go MIA.
I panicked and broke my own rules by calling and texting even more and forcing him to respond. I reminded myself this morning that I am an incredibly desirable woman. I temporarily allowed his behavior to make me doubt my level of desirability. With the right type of guy, or a good guy who appreciates you, no. With the wrong type of guy, or the bad boy most tend to seek, yes. Please choose wisely and be willing to accept the consequences for whatever types of guys you choose to give yourself to.
The right guys are out there - IF you are willing to seek for and accept them. You hit it on the head. I was going to add the same thing. This article is incredibly helpful and insightful.
BUT, as a gay man, I find myself relating to both sides of these feelings. This nothing to do with gender, and everything to do with being human. When we met up for a date I was a nervous wreck and projected my insecurities onto him, and he did run!
He never wanted to see me again. But this article describes how I behaved, and it makes a lot of sense. Whats really funny is that on the second date the guy i asked me why i didnt want a commitment and i was expecting him to want one if i disnt want it myself,to which i told him maybe now i dont but if i find the right person im not closed off to the idea.
Thats when he proceeded to let me know how i should give it time snd how he doesnt want to commit because he was not over his ex. An hour later he tells me he really likes me, to which i responded by letting him know that im aware that al he wants is sex. I dunno if this is of any relevance to mu previous comment but he has never been married and his last relationship ended 10 years ago.
The Number One Reason Men Suddenly Lose Interest
I met a guy online 6 months ago and we would talk for hours on the phone everyday and he seemed to be really interested in me. However,i did tell him id like to take care of him. Anyway, he wanted me to go over to his house the next day and i said ill c, but come the next day i told him i just cant do it because despite the attraction im just not the kind of person who rushes into sex. He was ok about it and we arranged to meet somewhere later that night,but he texted me 30 mins before time to cancel.
Anyway,from that point on the frequency of calls kind of diminished and we only spoke once as he wS on his way to the beach. I have my doubts. From that point on we were talking again pretty often,but not as often as before, and we agreed to meet a week later. The day of the meeting the attraction was still high sky like the first time and he was complimenting me non-stop about my looks,personality and mentality. He even told me he is surprised that im single until.
Of course the sexual insinuations began and i let him know that im not a booty call and of he is looking for one he should find another girl. Anyway, we talked a little more and i told him that he should allow himself to feel love and enjoy it, to which he got a little defensive and told me he has decided to live for himself because he is not over his last relationship which i believe ended maybe 6 years ago.
He even tried to turn the table on me by asking me why i care if i dont want commitment so i told him if the right person comes along im not against the idea. BTW, he initially told me that he is over his previous relationship. Anyway, as we were leaving he told me he really likes me and i told him he knows its not true because he only wants one thing from me.
Anyway, i went home and we talked again that night and he kept complimenting my looks and that was that. He had said we would go out a few days later and that he wanted to take me somewhere of his choice. Of course it never happened and he never even called to cancel or say we need to reschedule.
Furthermore,the following week we were basically running in circles trying to reach other until we finally spoke a week after the last meeting. He sounded very down in the call and i wasnt so happy myself. He wouldnt tell me the reasons why but he asked me why i sound different so i told him its because i dont like the way he requested sex from Me the last time we met, and i felt it was disrepectful.
Additionally, i let him know that i dont tolerate disrespect simply because there is nothing he gives me that i cant live without and that i talk to him because i enjoy it. He apologized and said he would watch ehat he says because he doesnt want to hurt me and i thanked him and told him he should be himself just as it is but just refrain from this derogatory talk.
Then i told him im here for him if he needs anything and asked him what i can do to make him feel better. He said lets just talk when i can and that was that. From that point on i just didnt call him because i didnt want to pressure him but i would message him every few days telling him im here and if there is anything i can do.
Then one night i sent him a msg telling him that he is a beautiful person and he responded by saying he is full of shit and the entire message thread was just plain weird. He was even rude to me when i gave him a pet name and treAted me with disrespect despite the fact that i was only trying to support him.
To be honest i got soooo mad and in the end i told him i wont turn my back on u but u were so quick to judge and u dont c how much i care. He then apologized and said he is sorry for being so rude and thats the biggest part of his problem and why he needs to be alone,and that he can see abd is grateful for my caring. A few days later he apologized again but i just wasnt ready to respond until a week later n i sent him a msg saying i had been disrespected by his words but ill pray for him.
Of course he didnt respond. A few days later i ran into him and he looked down n told me he had been seeing a therapist who knows i hugged him and teased him a little,and that was that.
A few days later i msged him telling him that whatever problem he is having i know he can conquer it because he is so beautiful and strong.
He thanked me and said thats what he keeps telling himself but he is going through a lot. I told him not to thank me because im here for him and i believe in him. A few days later i ran into him and on that night i wish id stayed home. Anyway,i felt guilty so i msged him an apology later and told him that i wont bother him again but i do love n care for him,a message which he ignored so i unfriended him on facebook because i think he made it cleAr he wants me out of his life.
I find this site pretty misogynist. So everything is because women fault, everything is because we NEED to stop being women and matching the model of women who better fits a guy. What happens with our goals? What we want is not important? We are here to please men with this anodine and false relationships without feelings or expectations? Seriously this is too much work. Sabrina Alexis.
None of that implies or indicates you need to change who you are to please a guy. The purpose of this article was to explain why men lose interest. I remember in my dating life I would have the experience of dating a guy who was really into me and then he just disappeared. This happened because I was so consumed with getting him to like me and commit and I lost site of my own sense of worth. I hope this clarifies things. Hi Sabrina, Spiritual doctrines advise to stay present and be in the moment.
Men seem to be able to do this more naturally and intuitively than women in the relationship context. Do you think men are generally more conscious and spiritually evolved than women?
Eric Charles. Angela, my guess is that you find a lot of things misogynist not because they are, but because you twist everything into thinking it is and then complain about. Just a guess. If you really want a good guy, you will find one. Also be prepared for an honest answer when you ask ANY question, including questions related to your looks, size, etc. You may find what you say you want. Not if he is crazy though! There are many out here waiting to be accepted by a good, honest, faithful woman who appreciates and TRULY desires that type of man.
Change what you look for and what you accept and things will begin to change in general. I can see your point and absolutely agree actually, i confess that i had sensed that this is actually what happens!
Perhaps there are other subtle issues? Why some men do decide to stay nevertheless? Interesting article and comments. I am relatively cool and calm under pressure and was in a long term relationship for 4 years which ended due to circumstances. I was absolutely broken and its definitely affected me with other guys. I had a busy few weeks and he was really pushing to meet up, and we agreed one night after about 3 weeks of texting to have a quick drink to see if this was actually something.
I would reply that it was fine, we all had crazy days etc. He replied that he was so sorry but things had definitely not changed and he was sorry that I felt we were on different pages. I told him, cool, I get it, and admitted that I had felt somewhat rejected by him not replying to me suggesting drinks. On one side I felt something was off and feel we had an open enough conversation to be able to say something, on the other side, did I push this too far?
My dad told me he knew why. Julian loves her. Plain and simple. True love is unconditional, everyone. Hang on everyone, every loss is a gain and a step closer to the best :. Some men are bitterly frightened of commitment.
They will sabotage a good relationship out of fear or something stupid. I know a guy, totally thought he was my soul mate. We clicked. He shared with me things he never shared with anyone. We were inseparable. He eventually told me that he meet a new young lady at a crab festival trip with a friend.
He also told me he feared my ex boyfriend would come back into the picture. He liked the island girl that could twerk it in bed i guess.
Eventually, she broke his heart. When she went home to visit her native country, she returned pregnant with her high school sweet hearts baby. He was heart broken over her, but not me!!! It scared him. When he was with her he would call me and say he wished she was me. I call it Attention Deficit Disorder in the dating department.
Some men are always looking for something better. Women need to realize when it is them, but they also need to understand when it is beyond their control. Too many articles place blame when the blame is with no one. This article was good, but if a woman has been dating a man for a while, its not odd for her to wonder where she stands. It is ingrained in a woman to settle down. Tell the woman you just want a physical relationship. A lot of women are perfectly ok with a physical relationship, no strings attached.
One last point. Some people are mental. They will find fault with everyone. These people will never be happy with anyone. Ladies listen up!!! When a truly invested man sudenly stops texting you leave it be. His silence says it all. Pick yourself up, dust yourself down and get back in the race.
1. He makes excuses
His problem not yours! Your awesomeness does not need that! It is what it is. You have got to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your prince! Hope this helps. Hi, I have been reading your blog for sometime. Its informative and sometimes comments resonate strongly with our own situations. Being a successful early 30 girl, dating is still something which completely baffles me.
After dating for years, i am still not sure what is right and what is wrong. My life is so busy, always being on business trips, fancy holidays, gym. Recently went on a date with a handsome guy who equally liked me so he said. He texted a couple of times from his holiday too which some interesting pictures. Its been over a week I have heard from him so I am now simply going to write him off. I have been going on other dates too but it just feels like a never ending process, even if we meet someone promising and play it cool.
This is exactly what happened to me. Is there a way to fix this or do I have to move on? This is quite accurate actually. What a bunch of nonsense! This is just another attempt to mold women into the emotionless Cool Girl by triggering their abandonment fears. It is completely, totally natural to feel more and more attached to someone the more time you spend with them and to want those happy experiences together to continue.
You are absolutely right. Also every one who is dating has an agenda, weather it be friendship, looking for a relationship, or just having a good time. I agree with you Heh too. My thoughts exactly. Girl power! U r just too right. U squeezed the words out of my mouth. U r either not the partner he is looking for or he met someone better. Yes absolutely agree. The first reason is the most common though, particularly give the rise of internet and app dating, tinder etc.
Even if she doesnt say it but the guy can sense shes thinking it. Why should a girl invest time in something that may be perceived to the guy as something casual. I get it if a girl starts getting all clingy on a guy after a few weeks it would freak him out. How about asking and talking to her rationally about it.
So the guy you like-your boyfriend, your crush, whoever-suddenly lost interest in you. He seemed to like you before, but now he's less enthusiastic, and you'd like to . Oct 29, You meet a guy and everything seems like it's going great. Then, after what feels like a super intense connection and budding relationship, suddenly he cools WAY off. Suddenly, he gets harder and harder to get ahold of or goes dark entirely, leaving you to wonder why he lost interest. Try to text him once as a test to see if he replies to you. Ask him to hang out or another question that warrants a response. This could also be a great idea if you've been dating for a while and don't really do date nights anymore. See how he reacts - that can tell you a .
If after that she continues to act antsy and desperate then I can see why a guy would disappear. But jeez, one incident with a girl that seems a little off and the guy wants to trash the entire relationship? Mature men ought to take into account how often women are USED for sex so guess what, thats where our insecurites often come from so give us a break.
While I love this article, I must point out the fact that this does not just apply to men. We live in an interesting time. I think whoever wrote this is dead on - correct in what was written. Basically, I am the way this article describes men to be. I am a young female. I am going through this right now. I go into dating nowadays if it even gets that far not fantasizing like I did in the past - not thinking about what could be - I just hope to have fun and expect very little honestly.
I am in the situation right now where I may walk away from this sweet man due to this very reason. U r so right. I got immediately turned off by some guy who wanted to visit me at home n meet my family n friends when I just met him. To him, that was a sign of seriousness but for me no no no it cut me off completely. Hithis is an topic of interest for me. I recently met a widow online. He said he moved on and grieved that entire year. He was ready to start dating.
I met him online. We dated for a few weeks and became intimate. We had a few things in common and I felt close to him. He acted like he truly missed me even living 45 minutes away. He pretty much dumped me because I texted him that I felt lonely and wanted to talk for 5 minutes ; just hear his voice.
This all happened a week ago.
Guy im dating is losing interest
I miss him been though he treated me badly. Other times, we just feel insecure and incapable of living up to your expectations. Basically, it is a maturity issue. I once dated a girl whom I absolutely adored! We were political opposites, which was bound to cause problems sooner or later. One day on an outing she attempted to sacrifice herself by jumping in front of a gun to save a wild animal from being shot!
That was the event I knew would come sooner, or later! I could picture myself at home watching T. No thanks! I wanted a woman who would sacrifice herself for her kids, not whales! Too extreme! I threw her back. In other words, I thought too highly of her, and not enough of myself! I let a lot of women go because of this one! I almost let my wife go because of it, and it may have been the right choice for both of us if I would have. She certainly deserves better than I. You can try to talk to your man about these things if you are willing to be understanding and reassuring, but, basically it is just a sign of our immaturity and you may have a long road ahead of you!
Good luck! Something has happened in the last couple of decades that has caused a significant increase in men feeling so insecure, personally, I blame feminism and the divorce rate! Your story means you could not live in the moment what the original article was aboutand started to fast forward your imaginary future. It is the survival of the fittest, or the most adaptable.
It is all about your perception anyway, that somebody else is more demanding. I think it is better to act your absolute worse behavior in the beginning. It is the best way to weed out the boring men.
Just when you hook him you act up more. He will think either you are too much trouble or there is now way you can get even worse. Then if you like him and he sticks around then you can show him you nicer side, and from then on it will be smooth sailing. After 28 years of marriage I still act up but only to keep him on his toes and keep the love flowing.
This nailed my last date with a guy I was seeing for 3 months. So when he walked through the door my lukewarm fake pleasant welcome most likely came through and for the better part of the beginning of the night there was palpable tension.
This is the part I wished I handled better. Or at least choose to let it go. The date was not going great. I just listened and accepted and expressed my not wanting to be a point of stress for him. He texted me the next day apologizing and we agreed to schedule a time to talk on the phone.
Basically he expressed some of the same issues of work life balance, and I wanted to find out if we were on the same page. I offered two solutions, one to move forward exclusively and slowly, and 2 to just cut ties. He said he needed time to think about it. He said he would call in a week. Tomorrow will be a week. I sigh with a humble heart. While there still was a lot of pushing and pulling in the 3 months of dating, a bit of hot and cold, it was still progressinguntil now.
That was Saturday and no contact since. How did your situation turn out? It was a nice talk regardless and he said he needed to figure things out and sort out his business at work for the next month or two.
He said he wanted to keep in touch and I said ok. That was a mistake in hindsight. He texted me three different times, and each time making it more difficult to stop thinking of him. They were just friendly texts just before each holiday TG, Xmas, NY and the third time he asked if I wanted t get drinks or diner upon my return from my holiday.
The proverbial strings! I said yes and greeted him. He did the same and no word. My return was delayed bc I got sick as did my daughter.
I went on a new date tonight and it was a dud. Unfortunately made me miss him more which is silly. I know it is foolish to feel that longing for someone who cannot give me what I want and to hope for it.
So if he does contact m again I am not sure what I plan on doingask him Not to, or give him a shot. My heart and head are at odds. There is nothing you could have done to stop this! It just means whenever this decision point would come he would decide the same no matter what.
The reason is he did not find him capable enough to commit to you either because he thinks you are not right for him or he is not right for u. Hi Sabrina, please help!
