8 Signs Your Man Is Emotionally Unavailable

Have you been unfortunate enough to have always found yourself in relationships with men who are emotionally unavailable? What exactly does an emotionally unavailable guy look like and why is it bad to be in a relationship with one? Well, in a relationship, it’s always important for the two people involved to be emotionally open to one another. Without emotional openness, it can be very hard for two individuals to get intimate and close to each other. You always want to open yourself up to someone you love; and you want that person to be just as open to you as well.

You don’t want to be wasting your time with someone who is emotionally unavailable because your relationship is always going to have a ceiling. You’re going to reach a sticking point – and you won’t be able to progress precisely because of the emotional unavailability. It’s important for you to know that you aren’t alone if you happen to find yourself in a relationship with someone who is emotionally unavailable.

Well, first you need to make yourself aware of the signs. There are certain red flags that could indicate whether a man is going to open up to you or not.
