A common question that many women have whether they are in a relationship or just dating is, why do men pull away?
At the beginning of the relationship or the first few dates, he seems so into you. He is going out of his way to make you happy and to please you.
But eventually, something changes…
Well there are a few reasons why men pull away and what you can do about it to protect your feelings and sanity:
1) Sex has happened, so you are no longer a conquest — he has conquered.
Do not have sex with a man until you have formed a REAL bond with him that goes far beyond physical attraction. That way, when sex does happen there’s still something that keeps the interest you have for each other alive.
2) He thinks that you are getting a little too attached, and he’s not sure if he wants to be your man.
Keep dating other guys since you’re not in a relationship. If he asks if you are dating other guys, tell him “Yes I am. Problem?” Watch how things start to change. (I discuss this in more detail in my dating guide Let Him Chase YOU).
3) Your low self-esteem and insecurity is bringing him down.
Energy is real. Guys can sense when you have low-self esteem and it brings a bad energy into your union that he wants to escape desperately. Have some confidence in yourself girl!
These are just a few reasons why men pull away. You might find yourself in one of them if you dig deep and tell the truth to yourself. Thankfully, the solutions are VERY simple, and they all start with you.
