7 Signs You May Be Emotionally Unavailable

7 Signs You May Be Emotionally Unavailable

Emotional availability is a sign of a healthy relationship. It means that your partner can talk about their feelings without feeling judged or criticized, and it also means that you feel comfortable enough to share yours with them. But what if you’re emotionally unavailable? That’s not something any relationship can survive. It’s like being stuck in quicksand! And yet many people go through life without realizing they might be emotionally unavailable in their relationships. So here are some signs that could mean you’re emotionally unavailable:

You turn your back on your problems.

  • You don’t talk about your problems.
  • You don’t seek help.
  • You don’t try to solve your problems in any way that might be helpful or productive for yourself or others.

The people you care about become needy.

You may be emotionally unavailable if you don’t care about the people in your life. If you don’t feel like showing up for your friends or family members, then they might think that something is wrong with them and start to worry about their own feelings.

You may also be emotionally unavailable if you don’t care about your partner’s feelings. It can be hard for partners who are emotionally unavailable because they want their partners’ love but aren’t willing to give it back!

You don’t get upset when you see signs of a partner being emotionally unavailable.

You might even be able to look at the situation from their perspective, and understand why they would act that way. In fact, you might even think “that makes sense,” or “maybe it’s for the best.” But then again… maybe not!

You keep everything to yourself and don’t express your feelings.

You keep everything to yourself.

You can be the most popular person at the party, but when someone asks you how your evening went, you’ll look them in the eye and say “fine.” It’s not that you’re ashamed of what happened. It just isn’t something that requires an entire sentence to convey. And if someone were to ask why this is: “I’ve got my reasons,” would suffice as an answer.

Keeping things bottled up inside may seem like a positive thing; after all, who wants their feelings hurt or made fun of? But it can have negative consequences for both your mental health and relationships. If nobody knows how they make you feel (not even close friends). Then they won’t know when they need help getting through tough times. And if they don’t know when those times are coming up…well…they might never find out! That kind of isolation can lead people into self-harm because there’s no one around who cares about them enough to notice when something bad happens in their life (or even see any signs).

You fake emotions in an effort to get what you want from others.

If you’re emotionally unavailable, you may find yourself running around trying to get what you want from others. For example, if your partner asks if they can invite friends over for dinner and you say yes but don’t feel like cooking anything or cleaning up afterward, it’s clear that something else is going on with them. You might be unhappy with the situation or irritated by their friends’ presence. But there’s still a disconnect between what they’re saying and how they’re feeling inside.

This kind of behavior can also manifest itself in other areas of life:

  • I’m not as invested in our relationship because I don’t see my partner act on his/her emotions (i.e., he/she doesn’t listen when I talk)

Your neediness makes it difficult for others to trust you.

You may be trying to get the attention of others, and you may be doing so in a way that isn’t particularly effective. If you’re constantly asking for praise or validation. Then it’s likely that your neediness has reached a level where it’s making others uncomfortable. This can affect any relationship. Whether it’s with your family members or coworkers. And it could even interfere with your job performance if everyone around you knows about how needy you are.

The good news is that there are ways around this problem: by improving yourself first (by getting help from therapy), then treating others better (by respecting their boundaries) and finally behaving more like an adult (by not being so clingy).

You don’t recognize that you need help with an issue or problem, even when someone offers it.

If you are emotionally unavailable, then your friends and family will likely be the ones to notice it first. They’ll see how withdrawn you are and wonder why. And they may even try to ask what’s wrong in an effort to get more information about why their friend has been acting so distant lately. If this happens too often (or if one particular situation comes up), then perhaps a counselor should be consulted. It could be worth checking out whether or not there’s something going on inside your head that needs some attention before it destroys any chance at happiness for both parties involved!

If you’re emotionally unavailable, it’s best to recognize it and seek counseling.

If you’re emotionally unavailable, it’s best to recognize it and seek counseling. If you don’t recognize it, you’ll continue to be emotionally unavailable and hurt others.

It’s important for us all to be honest about our emotions. And this means acknowledging when we’re feeling something other than what we think is appropriate or normal. For example: if you’re feeling angry with someone over an issue that was resolved months ago. But now they’ve done something else that makes it seem like they’re still holding onto resentment toward them (or even worse). Then maybe there’s more going on in your head than just “I don’t want them around anymore.” Maybe there are deeper feelings of hurt at play here that need addressing before moving forward together as friends again!


In the end, we hope that you have learned something from all this. If not, at least it will give you some laughs! Remember: if you’re emotionally unavailable and want to change that, then it’s time for a course in emotional availability. We also want to encourage everyone who reads this article to seek out counseling. It will help you learn how to deal with your emotions. Which will make it easier for others around you as well.
