Giving space when dating
He’ll come in and go out – like a rubber band – while he works out his feelings and digs deeper to find his ability to go the distance in a real relationship.
They really are not that confusing but will only commit to a woman who is not out to control him with man-management.
It's okay to communicate your feelings (like in a letter) or to ask him questions about what he's thinking.
But don't smother him and don't make him feel guilty and accused.
Or he claims nothing's wrong, but he just doesn't return your texts and seems to be a LOT busier than he was in the early stages of dating?
It’s finally happening: you met a man you’re compatible with, you really like him, and the feeling is mutual. Maybe he doesn’t mention seeing you this weekend, or he gets off the phone a little earlier than usual. You sense a shift in the way he is with you, and it doesn’t feel good. As a woman, our first instinct is to try to fix the situation by getting closer to him.
Look for ways to address and fix any underlying issues.
It's a good time to figure out what YOU want, too. Before you convince yourself that he has one foot out of the relationship, ask yourself if you truly believe that he's capable of commitment and a long-term partnership.
If you feel confident that he's an emotionally available man and is in love with you, then this space could be a good thing.
But if you feel doubtful that he has the ability to love, then it's time to say goodbye.
