A man can at times keep a woman at arm’s length with vague responses, or infrequent communication or better yet lame excuses for his lack of attentiveness…………….”I have been really stressed out at work, I just need some space to get my thoughts together, I don’t know what I want but I know I care about you.” These are all customary responses that a man will give a woman to keep her at bay….balance if you will…….teetering at a point of uncertainty on the issue of whether or not the gentleman is truly committed to a woman. It leads to a woman continually hanging on to a situation that is not giving any sort of real fulfillment.It is like dangling a carrot in front of a mule that is carrying the weight of the world on its back while chasing the carrot on the end of a string.If your boyfriend is trying to say that his job is stressing him to the point that he has no time to be committed to you, don’t stay with him at your own expense!Just respectfully tell him that you understand and move on with your life.
But from the perspective of the one who’s experiencing this with an indecisive partner, it can be quite taxing.
Look at a prime example of a classically, unfulfilling relationship, involving the most popularly uncommitted couple in the world. However, he had a very legitimate reason for not committing to his beautiful heroine. Never could the protector of the free world endanger the woman he loved by committing to her and having her become the target of all of his arch enemies.
That being said, Superman was still available to Lois for casual encounters that centered on some level of mutual convenience.
And every time the mule gets restless or tired of chasing the carrot, the task master shortens the string ever so slightly to make the mule think that the carrot is attainable.
How long do you make excuses for being unfulfilled in a relationship with someone because of there lack of commitment on all levels?
