He was horrid to me then, and he will keep being horrid to me for aslong as I let him. But be aware of several things. He invited me over and I irritated the shit out of him. Yet that doesn't give them the right to be disrespectful and they need to understand that. And this is something I have a complete control over unlike attempting to suss out his intentions. Fell for a woman and she was just stringing me along until someone better more money comes along. The other day I saw a photo of him and remembered his borish behavior and was shocked to realize that I put up with him.
Scarlet, How do you find the courage? Of course I was patiently waiting for him to change, hoping that the distance was the only reason for his coolness. One of the most unnerving and uneasy things to deal with is uncertainty. And once again you find yourself back at the same old road — afraid to confront but afraid to keep silent. He behaved as though he was head over heels. One day he is all loving and open, to just shut down the next.
I guess it got too much and my husband would constantly start fights with me and the other guy was like someone I could talk to bc he had been through it. I get to a balanced place and think I have been imagining the push pull stuff ie I have a great work friend who happens to be attractive and I have made too much of things in the past, it was all in my head… However, his behaviour also triggers this…Recently I was given a lot of support by this work colleague in a challenging aspect of my job. Your comment surprised me, but I suppose I only know what I have read about you for a few weeks. They had nothing in common but I think he chose her because she made him feel better about himself because he thought he was better than her and she put up with his poor treatment because she thought she was really lucky to get him. Is she really into you, or is she playing you? They seem to be hot and completely on board as well as into us one minute and then the very next moment they are completely disinterested and cold and we are left wondering what happened and why? You have work so much to get here and to feel better! He could be distracted by work or personal obligations, he could be dealing with his own fear and insecurity, he may be having some other type of internal conflict of his own that he is not sharing with you. Do you have any female friends you could ask to see if they can spot a reason why women might not seem interested? Decide whether you want to accept things as they are, despite the hurt and discontent you feel, or if you want something better. Some couples may find being direct works very well, but not everyone is skilled in expressing themselves in ways that open up communication rather than shut it down.
An example of a boundary would be: telling a guy that if he wants to hang out he needs to call you before a certain time in the night and if he does not call you by that time then you will not answer the phone and he will not come over. I tried to move on but our friends convinced me that you wanted to be with me. Seriously, how does that help you guys catch up or figure out anything, you're just sitting there in silence the majority of the time. Do a little check-up from the neck-up. Love yourself first — only you can make yourself whole. She's started posting a few pictures of herself out and about to her Instagram account, I've not 'liked' any, nor attempted to communicate with her.
All the commenters really help too. I eventually had to challenge it, confront it. PhazarFrench, I don't believe there's a standard response to your generic question. She has a problem with her relationship with herself, in short, she either does not know what she wants, or worse, has a deep rooted emotional crisis occurring at the subconscious level. She knew about me, she knew my name even. He told me that no matter what happened though he would always be my friend and we always worked through all of our issues very easily.
Well you can guess what happened, he cancelled on me again. I think these men know exactly what they are doing. He did respond to my texts throughout the week. The man has been a huge help to me. Eventually he surfaced once more and breezed back into my life as if nothing had happened and with no explanation as to why he disappeared or what he had been doing! It was my body that decided I had to leave as much as my mind. My recommendation is to see this pattern of behavior as a red flag and act accordingly. There's nothing you did, or didn't do, that's causing this.
For some reason, they are being wishy washy and the bottom line is that they do not really know what they want. Don't go on movie dates with her, you can do that with your girlfriend, whether that's her or someone else but in this scenario that's a terrible idea. What do we k now about affairs? Recognize that this is a pattern, which means behaviors that happen frequently not just coincidental happenstance, which is occurring for a reason. There have been times when I have actually cried and begged God to send me a good man who I could love safely and would love me without emotional abuse. Also we can learn if they are the person that when life throws them curves they draw in and pull away from the person in their life. After all, if you want something to change, then you must change something. But sometimes he flirted me but never call or text.
But it's just the opposite -- real power is the ability to maintain intimacy. Every situation is going to be different depending on what is going on in your relationship. I am ashamed to have married two men like this.
