Your good morning texts turn into not hearing from him for days. You might be dating a guy right now who suddenly pulls away every time things seem to be going well between the two of you, leaving you to wonder if your relationship is doomed, or if there's something you can do about it. There are a of reasons why guys pull away when they like you, such as fear of commitment, loss of interest, doubts about what they want, or unresolved feelings about an ex. Understanding some of the most common scenarios that arise at various stages of relationships will help you decide how to respond and get your healthy relationship back on track.
You try to ignore it. You try to justify.
He may be there physically, but emotionally he seems to be somewhere else. You ask him, but he just brushes you off and makes you feel like a nuisance … which only adds fuel to your panicked heart.
Well, relax! It has nothing to do with you. Whatever it is, it has nothing to do with you. When men are stressed or emotionally off balance, they typically prefer to deal with it on their own. Maybe you were rude to his best friend. Whatever the case, you did something that he found off-putting. Stressing is a total relationship ruiner.
Not to mention mood and self-esteem killer. But feeding into these feelings will just give them more power over you and they will just make the problem worse. Like I said earlier, a lot of the time when a man withdraws is has nothing to do with you. This is just how men prefer to deal with stress and difficulties. This will just cause him to retreat even further. Or maybe he is having doubts about you … okay, that happens. If you pester him to open up and talk to you, he will just move farther away. If he comes to you and asks for your advice, then, by all means, share your thoughts, but only if he asks.
If he wants to talk to you, he knows how to find you.
After that, try not to stew in anger or bitterness. Just let him be. Which brings me to my next point…. If he wants spacethen use it as an opportunity to take some time and space to focus on yourself. Being our best selves is an evolving process.
Now is a good time to get those parts back. The uncertainty is enough to drive you crazy and cause you to seriously question yourself. I know your instincts are to sink into a pit of despair or send him a nasty text about what a jerk he is and his mother should be ashamed of the man she raised, but this is a better way to handle it:.
Before you start reflexively panicking, just take a minute because he might not be pulling away at all! He might just be settling into a more normal routine. In the beginning, a guy brings his A-game because he wants to win you over. He texts constantly, he books the next date, he is attentive and available. People have jobs and lives. But really, he might just be getting more comfortable with you and settling into a more natural and normal state of being.

I remember in the days leading up to my first date with my husband we dated in high-school so we had a history we were talking non stop! All day long on text and Facebook Messenger and G-chat. Then our first date was 7 hours long! I was literally losing my mind. I was replaying everything to figure out where I went wrong and what I did to push him away. And that night, as I was mourning the loss of the relationship … he texted me and everything was just fine and normal! I created a whole drama in my mind for absolutely no reason. Also, try not to freak out at all because like I said, that never solves anything!
He knows where to find you! But none of this will work.
He will be able to sense your desperation and it will just make him pull away even more. This will just make you look crazy and your dignity will take a major hit! This is the same advice I gave above. Focus on yourself and your happiness. Stop worrying about what you did to turn him off and push him away. If you acted needy, then try to get to the root of the behavior and correct it.
I know a guy pulling away can have a devastating impact on your self-esteem but if you internalize these negative feelings, they will just cause problems for you in future relationships. After focusing on yourself and getting back to a mentally strong place, send him a feeler to see how he reacts.
Where have you been hiding? Just keep it light and casual. Maybe things will get back on track. If you follow the advice for your given scenario then one of the following outcomes will take place:.
A failing relationship is painful
This is the ideal scenario. Not all guys refuse to talk about problems. Some will want to share with you. But this will only happen if you are compassionate and give him space. Not if you hammer away at him to open up.
When you’re in a relationship and he pulls away
If he does do this, try to just be supportive and listen rather than trying to solve the problem for him. I hope this article helped you better understand exactly what to do when a guy pulls away. The fact is, most men pull away at some point in the relationship. And the way you react can determine if he will end it for good, or come back and be even better.
I love writing relatable, insightful articles that help people understand relationship dynamics and how to get the love they want. I have a degree in psychology and have spent the last 10 years interviewing countless men and reading and studying as much as I can to better understand human psychology and how men operate.
