It’s so simple and I wish we could all realize it.
When he says, “I don’t really want a relationship right now,” HE MEANS IT.
Don’t for a second take this as a challenge and think you can change him.
You’re not that special.
If he’s open enough to tell you what he wants and doesn’t want from you, you have to be cool with that.
If that doesn’t work for you and you really want a relationship then dip out as soon as possible.
The fact of the matter is he isn’t going to change his mind – at all.
In fact, the one thing that will absolutely make him run away as quickly as possible is you acting like you’re in a relationship.
What you can’t do with the guy who “doesn’t want a relationship”:
- Don’t question what he’s doing.
- Don’t accuse him of anything.
- Don’t get mad if you aren’t invited to something.
- Don’t expect to meet the family.
- Don’t make him meet your family.
All of these things will make him freak out and leave you as soon as he can because he’ll start to feel like he’s in a relationship- which he doesn’t want.
After all, he told you straight up that he wasn’t looking for a relationship.
So you can’t be mad now.
If you think you’re going to get too attached, then get out as soon as you can to minimize the breakup pain.
