Are you unable to understand that why is your partner pulling away from you?

Well first let me ask you, do you love to care too much about your partner and devote all your focus to him or her?

To love somebody and to suffocate somebody with your unnecessary focus are two different things. In order to bring ease and love into a relationship, you need to focus on some very simple and yet important things. Just make your partner feel secure with essentials which he or she deserves as being your partner. 


Slow down; what’s the hurry?

  • Take it easy in the beginning. Let your partner settle down. To succeed in the long run you must avoid the display of intense feelings of love and lust too soon.
  • Too much of intensity and that too very soon will leave your partner in a state of bewilderment and confusion. This will make him or her to pull away from you.
  • Express your feelings and your love slowly and timely. Your idea should be to shower not to dump. Always remember the golden mantra,’slow and steady wins the race!

  • You should sit and look back in the last few days at the things that were said or done that may have frightened your partner. This will help you to mend the things on time.

Think twice before taking the plunge of commitment:

  • You must know what your goals of commitment are and should also take the pains to know what your partner wants from a relationship.
  • Compare your goals with that of your partner and see whether they are in sync or not! It’s always better to keep a focus on what you want and what you can offer to your partner. This will help you a lot and will save you from the later embarrassment of heartbreak.
  • It is quite obvious that if you enter into a relationship with a person with different relationship goals than he or she will definitely pull away from you one day.

Communicate with your partner:

  • Ask him or her, how is she or he feeling and know what their fears are. Before hopping on the train of commitment learn as much as you can about your partner.
  • You should be aware of their recent past, their breakup and the reasons behind it. You should be aware of what he or she is looking, for now, in the relationship with you.

Is your partner is still single at heart?

  • Does your partner love to go out with his or her friends on weekends without even inviting you to join in with them?
  • Does your partner loves acting unavailable or ‘oh so busy’?
  • Notice whether your partner just enjoys dropping a quickie instead of inviting you to stay at night with him or her?
  • If yes is your answer, then your partner is definitely a freedom lover. Your partner cares more about being single and playing the field.
  • I would suggest you be vocal about your feelings and your emotional and other needs.
  • Avoid creating any pressure. Give your partner space and time to figure out what he or she can adjust with.

Is your partner feeling disrespected or unequal?
