A lot of women notice that men tend to pull away when things start to get serious. While everything is seemingly going well, a man just simply stops calling, stops responding to texts, and generally he is distant. This is likely to be very confusing for the woman involved in the relationship, and it can be very difficult to make sense of it. There are reasons why this happens, though. In this article, we will be going over some of the different reasons as to why guys pull away after the relationship has become serious.
1. Doesn’t Want To Settle Down.
This is typically the main reason a guy would pull away from a woman. Some guys might not be ready or think they are not ready to do so. After all, if they have a lot of single friends, they might not want to risk losing their close bond with them. Or perhaps, they do not want to look like they are settling down to their single friends and/or the friends are peer pressuring them not to.
2. Afraid Of Commitments.
A lot of men are simply afraid of making commitments. A lot of men typically deal with some sort of commitment issues – especially as it relates to women. Whether it is caused by their environment or it stems from their relationship with their mother – this is often the case. Some men simply cannot stand having to commit to one single person. After all, a lot of men will classify this type of commitment as a burden rather than something that provides them with anything more than they had without one. While a man might enjoy the commitment for some time, as with any relationship, it ends up becoming something that requires a lot of work and effort. This is generally when men start to pull away.
3. Men Like a Challenge.
If you are dealing with a guy that was seemingly interested in you one day only to find that they want nothing to do with you the next, you are likely dealing with a guy that likes a challenge. A lot of men are in it for the thrill of the chase or the challenge of being able to successfully win you over. If you end up making this kind of guy feel as though there is nothing left to do in order to win you over, you are likely going to deal with the guy pulling away at some point.
Overall, there are a lot of different reasons as to why a guy would pull away. Whether it is because they are dealing with some commitment issues, they were in it for the thrill of the chase, or they simply are not wanting to settle down just yet. Regardless of the reason, it’s important to understand that it is typically not something you do or have done that made them feel and act this way.
