The term emotionally unavailable usually refers to those who create barriers between themselves and others in an effort to avoid emotional intimacy. Relationships with emotionally unavailable people are often depressing and distressing, as their partners end up feeling neglected, unloved and unwanted.
As a result, you look and feel bitter and are unable to experience the benefits of love.
Who wants to be vulnerable? It’s fair to assume that no one likes feeling exposed, weak, or defenseless. Of course those of us who have been in love know that this sometimes comes with the territory. But after dealing with cheaters, liars, toppled with a bundle of heartbreak, some people bounce back into love while others are skeptical and left guarding their emotions. This is all fine if you don’t want to reap the experiences of a loving, healthy relationship; but if you do, chances are being unemotionally available will prevent you from the experience.
So how do you know if you are emotionally unavailable?
