Men With One Foot In One Foot Out of the Relationship

| 10/15/2012 | Comments (1)

Women complain that many men are distant emotionally in their relationships, giving her the feeling that he has one foot in and one foot out of the relationship. He’s not really 100% there, but he isn’t leaving either. I relate this type of behavior to someone who is not sure that they want to be involved with you. Either they like you but just aren’t quite there yet as they wrestle with their concerns about you and/or the relationship. OR you are looking at a few years later and this person is not involved on any deeper level than they were in the early days of the relationship! Now what?

What’s the problem here?

Why would someone stall on moving forward with their partner after a period of two or more years?

Could it be that this person has no intention of having a deeper level of commitment because they don’t really want to be with you?

What is it that makes men be this way?

But the bigger question is … why do women accept it instead of leaving this guy and a go-nowhere, non-commital relationship behind?

    sometimes, we women get with these fools AFTER we sleep with them and start to get tied with them and thinking theres more–they’ll DRAG many women for YEARS….I know a guy who was ‘engaged’ for years, with no intention of marrying his ‘fiance’–this is men of ALL COLORS BTW—and the women wants a wedding etc…..the best thing she could do, is to break up or not see him for awhile
