Yet, at times, even a good man can become overwhelmed verbally, and go into what I call “emotional overwhelm.” This is where a man can’t handle the emotions coming at him and feels so anxious inside that he ends up withdrawing to get away. If you can learn to talk about “loaded” topics without having your man become emotionally overwhelmed, your relationship will instantly change for the better.But if you keep pushing each other past a safe emotional place, don’t wonder why he acts distant.
I get it – when a woman doesn’t feel heard or appreciated in her relationship, changing her tone seems like the only way to get a man’s attention.
Unfortunately, this is when men mistake your intentions and feel criticized or blamed.
You have an amazing relationship with a guy who adores you. It was only a few days ago that you and the man were close, connected and intimate. The truth is…too many men make the mistake of running away from what could be perfectly good relationships with amazing women.
He tells you he’s unhappy, and suddenly he has one foot out the door.
If you set a positive emotional tone in the relationship, a man will be more mindful of what he’s gaining with you, rather than any of the things other men fear losing in their freedoms.
