shutterstock Trying to build a relationship with an emotionally unavailable person can be an extremely draining and frustrating experience.Although there are many who attempt to tear down the walls in an effort to win the heart of their emotionally unavailable love interest, most fail and wind up with their hearts broken in the process.Are you unsure if the guy you’re seeing is emotionally unavailable?
This point looks similar to #1, but trust me when I say it’s different. Emotional psychopaths know they don’t have much going for them so they exert control over their victims in an effort to control the way they think.
However, Beatty Cohan, a psychotherapist and author based both in New York and Saraosta, Florida, said there are clear signs your partner is an emotional manipulator, explaining that once you start noticing them, you need to leave the relationship immediately, before it becomes any more toxic.
The author of For Better, For Worse, Forever: Discover the Path to Lasting Love explained that people in these types of relationships aren't miserable all of the time; there can be bouts of time when things are going great, and that's when confusion really sets in.'You feel like you are on a roller coaster ride,' Beatty said, noting that 'the earlier you get out, the better' because you'll find yourself in a circular relationship that wears you down and makes you feel bad about yourself.
If you find yourself constantly asking yourself if you are overreacting or being too sensitive, it is time to move on.
If your partner continuously insults you or makes fun of you when you out in public, chances are he or she is an emotional manipulator.
