This is a question I get frequently from people writing in to the radio show or sending me emails. Does this sound familiar? You have been dating for a while and thing are going really well. He is giving you lots of attention, spending time with you and telling you how much he cares. You feel very hopeful about the relationship’s future. Then all of a sudden he starts to pull away, taking you for granted, or at least that is how it seems. You feel confused and do not know what to do. You might confront him, argue, make ultimatums, or even leave.

The same kind of scenario plays out in long-term relationships as well. There are times you feel very close and in-sync with your guy. He is giving you lots of attention, you are spending time together, communication is good, and you feel emotionally connected and in love. Things could not be better. Then all of a sudden for no apparent reason, he pulls away and is distant. He goes into his shell.

This happens in relationships for a variety of reasons, and is actually quite normal. If you understand the reasons why men act this way, you will have the power to draw him closer instead of chasing him off when he starts to pull away.

  1. […] If you find yourself in a relationship where you are acting like you are married but without the marriage or the commitment from your partner, it is time to step back. It is time to see him less and to focus on your own happiness. This takes you out of the victim role of waiting to be chosen and puts you in a role of confidence. You are acting in feminine energy and have the power to get what you need not by taking control but by giving him room to grow into love and commitment. I have seen this work over and over again where he realizes that he misses you and really does want you in his life permanently. He is then happy to make the commitment. A man will often feel his love for you when is faces with losing you. Give him space to figure out if you are the one for him.  For more information read my previous post, “How To Get Him To Come Out Of His Shell When He Pulls Away.” […]
