It’s hard not to notice when a guy you’re seeing starts to pull away. He doesn’t text you as much. He isn’t asking about your day, or when he can see you next. He seems distant when you do chat, and just seems all around less interested than he used to be. And you have no idea why. Was it something you did? Well, maybe. But not necessarily. Sometimes relationships just fizzle out because of timing, or some other unforeseen circumstance, but it can be frustrating when he doesn’t just tell you straight up that he’s no longer interested.
He met someone else.
No one knows when they’re going to meet someone amazing, and unfortunately that means you could be replaced unexpectedly. Especially with online dating, we tend to date a few people at once and at some point one of those people is going to take the lead. And it’s not always going to be you.
He’s too busy with work.
A relationship takes time and effort, and if he’s working 60 hours a week, making time for you might not be a top priority for him at the moment.
You turned out to be not who he thought you were.
An initial attraction doesn’t always last once you get to know each other. Everyone’s on their best behavior in the beginning, but as time goes on, he might realize you’re not what he’s looking for.
He doesn’t see a long term future with you.
He loves hanging out with you casually, but he doesn’t see you as someone he can take home to his parents and build a long term relationship with.
He doesn’t want it to get serious.
Whether he was always upfront about not wanting a serious girlfriend or not, the chances of you changing his mind are pretty slim. Guys know they can only casually date a girl for so long before she starts expecting more, so maybe your relationship has hit its predetermined expiration date.
He thinks you’re not into him.
Some girls like to sit back and let the guy do all the pursuing, but there comes a point where if he’s not getting any positive reinforcement, he’s going to give up. So, if you like him, let him know!
There’s no chemistry.
And you know it too. So let him go.
You just want different things.
If you want a relationship and he doesn’t, it was bound to end eventually. Or it could be something even smaller like you’re a vegan, and he just can’t imagine a life without meat.
You came on way too strong.
Guys don’t like needy or clingy girls. If you’re acting like that too early on, he’s going to cut his losses and escape while he still can.
He was just in it for the chase.
As frustrating as it is, some guys lose interest the second they get what they want. The only thing you can do is try to spot these ones before you regret giving it up.
