6. HE HAS OTHER THINGS ON HIS MIND.
This may not even be related to your relationship. If he has other things going on in his personal or work life, he may try to shut you out. A lot of us men think we can work through things on our own without any outside help. If we’re trying to work through something, it’s only natural to take a step back from our relationship.
7. HE FEELS UNAPPRECIATED.
Just like women like to feel appreciated, men do as well. If you feel your boyfriend pulling away, you may not be letting him know how much you love and appreciate him enough. We sometimes get to a point in a relationship where they feel like their partner will be just fine without us. Hopefully this isn’t true, and if it’s not, remember that you have to show him.
8. YOU DON’T WANT THE SAME THINGS.
You may genuinely care about each other, but guys can sense when our partners don’t want the same things as us. If he feels that crack in the relationship, he may pull himself away, thinking that he doesn’t want to get any more invested in a relationship that isn’t going to last.
9. HE WANTS TO CHANGE HIS DIRECTION IN LIFE.
If a guy is pondering a big decision, he’s probably going to make it on his own and wants some space from everyone around him. He could be thinking about breaking up with you. He could also be thinking about proposing. It could also have nothing to do with you. Your best bet is to try to get him to open up without pushing too hard rather than freaking out about your boyfriend getting a little distant with you.
10. IT’S IN YOUR HEAD.
If it feels like your boyfriend is pulling away, you have to consider the possibility that it’s all in your head. No offense, ladies. It’s possible that you may think a guy is pulling away, but he’s actually just settling in and getting comfortable with your relationship rather than trying to woo you and win you over. It’s actually a good thing, right?
