Does your boyfriend always seem to be emotionally unavailable? Are you wondering why he seems to have no feelings at all? If you answered yes to either or both questions, then you should probably rethink things because being around someone who lacks emotional availability may leave you feeling lonely and frustrated.

Emotional availability refers to the ability to empathize with another person’s emotions and respond to them appropriately. When people lack emotional availability, they tend to have less empathy toward other people. They also experience fewer positive emotions such as joy and appreciation. This means that their relationships suffer. Here are some reasons why you should avoid dating an emotionally unavailable man.

He Will Not Be Able To Listen.                                                                                                  emotionally unavailable men

If you want a man to listen to what you say, ask him to tell you about his childhood. By doing this, you will get insight into how he feels and why he behaves in certain ways. A man who has not been able to talk about and express himself is bound to be emotionally unstable.

He Is Unable To Feel Guilt or Remorse.

A man who does not feel remorse or guilt is not capable of changing. He can only continue on the same path, which most likely leads to more problems. If you are lucky enough to find a man who cares for others, you need to make sure that he is capable of showing compassion and regret when he makes mistakes.

He Has No Sense of Self-Worth or Values.

Men who do not value themselves cannot expect anyone else to. They spend their time trying to satisfy their needs instead of taking care of theirs. Their inability to set boundaries often results in unhealthy relationships.

He Does Not Know How to Love and Appreciate His Partner.

A man who does little to show affection or appreciation for his partner rarely appreciates her. In addition, he lacks the self-awareness needed to know just how special she is. The relationship will end up suffering if these two traits remain unchecked.

He Does Not Show Sympathy for Others’ Pain.

People who lack sympathy develop cold hearts. Even if there is nothing wrong with them, you must take note of this trait. It could be that they simply lack empathy and therefore have trouble seeing things from their partner’s point of view.

He Has Low Standards.

Someone like this man will never love you unconditionally. So if you decide to become involved with him, don’t expect to receive unconditional love back from him. You might even end up getting hurt if he shows you any kindness.

He Always Seems To Want More Than What He Gets.

When someone becomes emotionally available, they stop wanting more than they already have. It takes them some time to understand this concept but once they do, they usually start having lots of fun. Unfortunately, emotionally unavailable men are unable to change because they keep wanting more even though they already have everything they need.

He Doesn’t Respect Your Time.

You must respect the time of those you date. Someone who doesn’t respect your time is not worth spending time with. He won’t give you the attention that you deserve. Instead, he’ll always have something else going on.

He Is Only Interested In Himself.

There are so many women out there who would love to date someone interested in them. However, those who are emotionally unavailable are only interested in themselves. Emotionally unavailable men are selfish and focus too much on their pleasure rather than giving anything back to their partners.

He Shows Little Initiative.

One thing that is important to remember about all men is that they have their agenda. An emotionally unavailable man will always try to manipulate situations to suit his needs. He may even use his girlfriend as a tool to achieve his goals.

He Can’t Commit.

An emotionally unavailable man is incapable of committing himself to another person. While he might say one thing, he means the exact opposite. When he says he loves you, you need to pay close attention to what he’s saying.

The Bottom Line.

Emotionally unavailable men are not worth dating. They lack compassion and understanding and instead focus on what they want. If you date such a man, you will be disappointed. The sooner you realize this, the better.
