Have you ever noticed that when things start to get serious, guys end up pulling away? If this has ever happened to you, it has likely left you extremely confused. The truth is, understanding the male mind is a complex thing. A majority of it is run by ego. Below, we will be going over some of the main reasons why a lot of guys pull away when they feel as though things are getting too serious.
1. He Doesn’t Want To Commit.
One of the primary reasons a lot of guys end up pulling away from a relationship that is starting to get serious is because the guy simply doesn’t want to commit. A lot of guys are willing to enter a relationship but are unwilling to go any further simply because they do not necessarily want to commit to it. Taking the next step can involve a lot of commitment, and some guys simply aren’t ready or willing to make that kind of commitment regardless of who it is with. Thus, this reason typically has nothing to do with the woman the man is unwilling to commit with.
2. He Is No Longer Attracted To You.
Another common reason on why guys pull away when things start to get more serious is because he is no longer attracted to you. Because attraction is not necessarily a constant thing, a man can be attracted to you one day and the next day seemingly is not attracted to you. This is something that happens a lot to couples that have been together for a long time. If a man is not attracted to you any longer and they feel things are getting too serious, they are likely to jump ship. Whereas, if the guy is not as attracted to you as he used to be, but he still enjoys your company and wants to make a relationship work, he will stay.
3. Gave In Too Fast and Easy.
Believe it or not, but a lot of guys actually pursue a woman because they view them as hard to get or unattainable. Once this ‘thrill of the chase’ is over, a man is likely to go back to feeling as they would if the thrill was never there, to begin with. In this case, the guy is likely not ready nor willing to commit and was likely only in the relationship because it was brand new, fun, and exciting.
There are plenty of different reasons as to why a man would begin to pull away from a woman. A lot of the reasons have nothing to do with the woman that the man is pulling away from and some of them do. Some guys might even think things are casual and the woman might get the wrong idea or interpret the signals incorrectly. With that being said, relationships are hard work, and it takes two to commit to one. Therefore, if you find the man starting to pull away, just move on from him.
