It’s a hot topic of discussion with your girlfriends: why men pull away.
It can be incredibly confusing, you and your girls agree. Maybe you’re currently dealing with this situation.
Things were going great for a while. You were sure that he was into you. You went on dates. Maybe you even got busy in the bedroom. You started imagining the potential of a future with this guy.
But all of a sudden…He’s texting you less.
He’s unavailable to go out with you as often.
He seems unhappy all the time.
Then suddenly he tells you he “needs space…”
What the #$^! does that mean?
… is he trying to end things?
… are you doing something wrong?
… does he really just need space?
…how much space does he need, and for how long?
When women hear a guy needs space, they typically rush in to try and fix things.
A sudden shift in your man’s behavior can send you into panic mode, especially if you’re starting to really care about this guy.
That’s totally normal.
But by understanding why men pull away, you can know if he just needs to recalibrate how he sees your relationship (i.e. he didn’t plan on being in a serious one, but he’s starting to care for you, so he has to figure out if he’s ready to fully commit), if he’s overwhelmed with other aspects of his life, or if he’s simply indicating that he is ready to move on from you.
Trust me. You’ll want to know the reasons why men pull away so you can do what’s right for you and your emotional needs. After you watch this video, you’ll know how to handle it when a guy tells you he needs space, and why he’s saying it in the first place. You never know: it might be the single best thing to happen to your relationship
In this video, I explain three reasons why men pull away and why a guy might say he needs space, as well as what you can do about it.
There’s nothing more frustrating than when someone you really care about starts to slip away. When something feels like it’s breaking or slipping away, people naturally want to fix that problem.
But as you probably have realized, you can’t always fix what’s wrong. If a man needs some space, you can’t just say three magical words to get your relationship where you want it to be.
You can’t put a Band-Aid on what’s wrong.
Love doesn’t work that way. Relationships don’t work that way. You need to learn how to understand where he’s at and where he’s coming from so that you can give him what he needs, even if that’s a bit of distance from you for a while.
Let’s dive into understanding why men pull away so that you can figure out what to do.
Reason #1 Why Men Pull Away: They’re Stressed
If he’s stressed, he may pull away.
It can be easy to assume that whatever’s causing him to distance himself from you has to do with you.
Did I annoy him with my stupid jokes?
Did he hate that I don’t flush the toilet after nightpees?
Does he hate my friends?
Is he seeing someone else?
Not to worry, Sexy Confident Lady. You are not necessarily the cause of what’s eating him.
In fact, it would do you well to remember that you aren’t the center of his world. Nor do you want to be.
A common reason why men pull away or say they need space is that they’re really stressed out. There’s something stressful in their lives like their family, or maybe it’s something with work.
Consider what’s going on in his world. Has he been working 70 hours a week? Is a family member ailing? Does he have baby mama drama?
Any of these is enough to wreak havoc on anyone’s life. And he may be dealing with his stress by pulling back from you.
