Men withdraw from the relationship; they pull away. It’s what happens. Women do it sometimes, too – but with men; usually, they are only either going deeper in to the relationship with you; or they’re moving away; to do things that make them feel like men. And, when he pulls away; to you – it hurts. You get angry. Sad. You feel unloved. You no longer feel like that queen or princess.
Emotional withdrawal is often misunderstood. And sadly, it is one of the biggest destroyers of marriage relationships. So there’s no time like the present to take a closer look at what makes a withdrawer check out emotionally.
The lack of compassionate response from your partner, or even laughing together, can rob your relationship of the life it needs in order to grow and thrive. Emotional withdrawal is not a sign of weakness. Nor does it indicate a lack of caring or love.
So, why do men pull away in relationships and what to do when men pull away? What is intuitive to a man in a relationship is not what is intuitive to a woman. The problem here is that men and women are hardwired completely differently. As women, we tend to think, value and believe certain things that are different to what a man would tend to think, value and believe.
See, what’s intuitive to us women, can be completely foreign to men. And the reverse is also true, what is intuitive to a man, can be completely foreign to us as women.
