When some people end a relationship, they sometimes go through a rebounding stage. At this time, they’re not looking for anything serious.
Instead, they’re just looking for someone to have fun with until they get over their ex. Not fair to the new person, but unfortunately it happens.
These steps will help you avoid getting caught up in a man who is emotionally unavailable..
5 Ways To Tell if He’s Emotionally Unavailable :
1. Find out how recent their last relationship was.
This is a key step in determining whether or not this person is on the rebound. Steer clear of anyone who has ended a relationship within the past three months. They’re probably not ready to jump right into another relationship (even if they think they are) .
Some are just looking for someone to help them deal with their recent break-up. Be careful during this time because as soon as this person realizes they’re over their ex, they just might realize that they’re over you too. You’ve served your purpose, no need for you anymore. Sad, but true!
2. Ask them.
Don’t be afraid to ask them. Straight out… “I know it hasn’t been long since your breakup. Do you feel like you’re at a place where you’re able to love again?”
Make sure you take note of their body language while they’re responding. It will tell you a lot! This will help you establish whether this person can emotionally give you what you need in a relationship without making you suffer the cost of their last relationship.
3. Pay attention to how often they mention the ex.
Even better, what does this person have to say about their ex? If they’re constantly talking about their ex (even if it’s in a bad way) , they’re still emotionally attached. It doesn’t matter if it’s a negative or positive comment about the ex. Either way, it’s bad news.
If someone mentions something repeatedly, it’s because it’s weighing on their mind. It’s probably a good idea to give this person space to sort out their feelings before pursuing anything further.
4. Listen to how they talk to you.
If someone is interested in you, you’ll know it. If they rarely mention anything about the the two of you as far as a future, or seems as though they’re constantly keeping their options open even though they are supposed to be in a relationship with you, then there’s a good chance, they’re rebounding.
They might enjoy your company but isn’t ready for a commitment.
5. Evaluate how they treat you.
If they constantly want to be intimate, even after you have made it painfully clear, NO SEX, this is a huge sign that they won’t respect your vow to celibacy.
Someone who genuinely wants to get to know you will want to spend time with you whenever they can because they genuinely like you and can see a future with you outside of the bed. This person is clearly not that person.
