How To Spot The Signs He’s Pulling Away

By J Johnson

You’re longing for HIM to propose. You know he’s The One, you’ve been together long enough to want this relationship to never end, and you just don’t understand what’s taking him such a long time to propose. But still, he doesn’t really want to discuss it.

While he dodges The Question, you worry: Could your relationship be ending? Here are five signs men send women that they’re pulling away and that he’s moving out of your life. Plus how to handle it, in order to keep him. Here are a few of the signs men send that signal they aren’t planning to propose and, in fact, they want out:

The top sign he’s pulling away is that he doesn’t keep promises – at least, not to you. These can be major promises, like remembering to book a trip together or put in for days off from work so you can go, or perhaps everyday promises like stopping along the way home to pick up something you’ve asked him to pick up. This one concerns any promises there are between you, because ‘forgetting’ them, not merely once in a while but when that’s becoming a regular habit lately, is a clear sign that you, and what you long for or need or would please you, just isn’t ever on his mind.

He’s pulling away if the thrill is gone, or perhaps physical closeness and also the ‘couple’ moments have just about vanished. It’s a major sign if he no longer likes to touch you, so hugs or cuddling in front of TV happen much less, or not at all. There might still be sex, but it’s different, less passionate, less urgent, less often. He isn’t happy to linger in bed or he just falls asleep immediately after. He may stay up later, and get up earlier, so you’re only really physically close when you’re both asleep.

Not wanting to spend more time with you is yet another big boyfriend sign that he’s leaving you, so is ‘forgetting’ to tell you he’ll be away, or be late, or calling when he is away, or ignoring your calls/texts. Hesitant to spend time with you and your friends or the family is yet another big signal that you shouldn’t expect a future together.

The way a couple uses (and shares) what they’ve got, including their time and possessions but particularly their money, says quite a lot concerning the state of the relationship. Does it appear to be recently he has got less money? Maybe he’s spending elsewhere, or saving to get his own place (if you own your home or it’s your apartment) or for other plans that don’t include you. So follow the money to reveal sign number four that he might be planning an exit out of your life together. Certainly, it might also be true he’s saving for some other reasons including a deposit for a home that suits you both, or a honeymoon, but you need to do some subtle investigating.

How exactly does he talk to you, and also to others when you’re not around about your relationship, and particularly about the future? This is often revealing. If there’s more “I” than “we,” he is probably already un-coupled in his mind, he just hasn’t physically left yet. Perhaps you’ve read these boyfriend signs correctly? Have you been waiting for a guy who may say he loves you, but doesn’t view you as The One, the person he intends to create a life and a family with?

Could it be your guy has now moved on in his heart and mind? Is his recent ‘coolness’ happening because he’s demonstrating all the signs he’s leaving you? Or possibly is it something else? And, if he’s pulling away, what can you do now if you truly don’t want this relationship to end? You could try simply asking him, but don’t expect him to want to sit down and have a long heart-to-heart about this. Generally, men process emotions very differently than women do. Odds are, he isn’t really even aware (or couldn’t put into words) what he’s feeling. This doesn’t mean men’s minds (and hearts) are unknowable, forever shrouded in mystery.
