Monday Tip: Spot Emotional Unavailability
Last week’s tip was about not ignoring red flags, so this week I’m going a step further. One red flag I see people ignore all the time (or don’t actually see) is emotional unavailability.
What do I mean by emotional unavailability? Someone who:
- Isn’t emotionally present or connected
- Doesn’t match their words and actions
- Plays hard to get
- Avoids intimacy
- Discounts your feelings
If this sounds like insecure attachment, you’re right. Most emotionally unavailable people are Anxious, Avoidant or Anxious-Avoidant. And the kicker is, if YOU are emotionally unavailable, you’ll attract the same. Yep, in this case like attracts like. To have a healthy, emotionally connected relationship, you need to be emotionally available yourself.
TIP: Spot emotional unavailability in others AND yourself so you can work on opening yourself up…and attracting partners who do the same. Read 10 Signs of Emotionally Unavailable Men You’re Probably Missing so you know what to look for. BTW, this applies to women too!
Emotional availability starts with you.
