6 Important ThingsYou Should Do WhenYour Partner Is Pulling Away From You.

When women notice a sudden change in behavior with their men, at first they ignore it and blame it on many things including work and stress. Sometimes it can be too much such that they can’t ignore it when their men are pulling away.

You notice that spending time with you is no longer a priority, and whenever he spends any amount of time, his mind seems so preoccupied. He also becomes less affectionate, the sex becomes rare and he hardly responds to your phone calls or texts. How exactly do you respond to such behavior?

Pause Everything and Gather Your Inner Thoughts.

Take your time to gather and master your inner thoughts as you kick out any negative thoughts on fear or anger. If you feel like confronting him or sharing your feelings with him ,take a break. There is no urgency in talking to a man especially when all that he wants to do is keep his distance.

Discuss Space in The Relationship.

 Have a sit down with your partner as both of you determine how much space and time both of you need. Also, discuss your needs so that both of you can find a balance that could save your relationship.

Don’t Take it Personally.

At times when a man is pulling away it has nothing to do with you but rather everything to do with his journey. Remember you can’t control a person’s behavior therefore you have absolutely no control over their feelings too.

Distract Yourself.

Slow yourself down for a while and do activities that will get your mind out of him for some time. You can get yourself a hobby or do volunteer work as you let him have all the distance he needs.

Manage Your Emotions When He Comes Back.

If you give him space and don’t get in touch with him when he expects you to, he is likely to make contact with you after sometime.When he returns to you, avoid venting any negative emotions to him since lushing out at him would completely destroy your relationship.

Just Let Him Go.

 Sometimes all you have to do when someone wants to go is to set them free and let them be. If your lover is so determined to go, there’s very little you can do to pull him to the side. With that, all you can do is stop trying too much to save the relationship and stand up for yourself: you are the one who needs saving afterall.

Bottom Line:

Pulling away is part of the masculine instinct since men can only be connected to their partners for a certain period of time and they have to retreat to find their equilibrium again. Even when your man is deeply in love with you, they need to retreat and re-engage with their goals and passions.
