Dating unavailable men psychology
We all pick a bad apple every now and then from the dating pool.
Here’s what they had to say: If you’ve ever been in a relationship with someone who’s emotionally unavailable, then you know what the dark side looks like, Esther Boykin, licensed psychotherapist and CEO of Group Therapy Associates tells Bustle.
As psychotherapist and relationship coach, Rachel Dack tells Bustle, “The way you feel about yourself directly affects your relationships with others and your dating life.
When you feel confident and able to attract a great partner, you are no longer willing to accept anything less.”Dack suggests mastering a skill, participating in hobbies and interests, utilizing healthy self-care patterns such as exercising and getting more sleep.
Other times, we're afraid to make a commitment ourselves, so this is a very effective way to not truly get involved, Dating and Relationship Coach, Christine Baumgartner tells Bustle.“One of the key points I discuss with my clients is we often attract people who are in a similar emotional place as we are.
So it's important to honestly assess how emotionally available you are first,” Baumgartner says.
