Relationship advice for dating a married man prince william dating flatmate
From where I’m standing, you shouldn’t bet money on this particular possibility. Let me guess – he always says he’s going to be somewhere, and then he doesn’t show up, he doesn’t pick up calls, he won’t help you when you need him, he disappears, he blows you off and all manner of other unforgivable behavior. “Going out with some friends” is not a real answer, especially when you know nothing about these friends.
“I’m going to meet up with Brian for 7pm at Pizza Hut because I haven’t seen him in a couple years,” is a real answer. There is something he is not telling you, and I smell another – or multiple – girlfriend(s).
As a woman dating an emotionally distant man, you run the risk of being shut down repeatedly and every effort you make to get closer can be rebuffed. He’s not there, you’re confused, and you end up on an emotional roller-coaster. What you know is that he’s not treating you right, but there are so many options as to why. Now, I wasn’t even going to touch this one, but since I know how people are, let me say it: if he already has a girlfriend, fiancée, or – God forbid – a wife, then all of his behavior suddenly makes sense.
But there is an enormous difference between being reluctant to open up and straight-up shutting down any attempt at conversation.A man who is ‘not there’ for you has the characteristics and symptoms of being fiercely independent, detached, unwilling to commit, distant, and even cold at times. Do the signs a man give you fluctuate from week to week? If he gives any indication that he is already attached or won’t disclose his relationship status, that should raise red flags all over the damn place!
