Signs your partner is emotionally unavailable?

30 September 2014, 08:04 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - It can happen to anyone, even the best of us. Are you dating that someone who is just not in it?


The Sucker

I call them that because they literally suck the life out of you. You spend so much time and energy to engage them, which should work as a headlight for you. If it is not given freely then it is not worth it because at times all that chasing just leaves you exhausted without any medals at the finish line. They are suckers because you just try to make it too good for them, and they keep changing what that is, by the time you finish that task, the satisfaction that was guaranteed from it is no longer there because they were not sure of it in the first place.


Temper tantrums

This one will show it to you earlier on in the relationship. You should have run away the minute it just became too obvious. Shouting at wait staff, does not mind causing public scenes and is just prone to over emotional outbursts. Worst part is, it’s never on something too significant or relevant or it is something that can be very easily be sorted. At one point in time it will not be public though because you are the available party and the temper will just land on you.

Unpleasant situations

When your current significant other makes you feel bad for what others do to him or her then they are just unemotionally unavailable. Cannot unpleasant situations in such a way that they keep petty grudges instead of confronting them, or they are just bitter with what they cannot manipulate to suit them. Eventually, it is you who becomes the cause of all that goes wrong with them. Anger and constant arguing takes the norm in the relationship.


Too shallow

There is nothing as love at first sight; I mean, you should be worried by people who tell you they love you, yet they do not know your ins and outs. People who have not worked on anything with you to depths will easily fall out of the same emotions when it becomes hard. When you fall for such lines then maybe you deserve to fall into those potholes.
