Should I just give up on an emotionally unavailable man?

He is my ex and said he sucks at relationships and doesn't feel things like other people. He was depressed.
Last time we spoke was 4 days ago, and he said his dick belongs to me lol

  • Last thing I want to do is insult depressed people, but depressed people inherently self-absorbed, it’s part of being depressed, you are self-consumed by your own state, both emotionally and mentally, I’ve been depressed before and when you feel that way, you don’t have the ability to offer yourself to others the way they would like, because it feels you don’t have any gas in your gas tank. I wouldn’t assume he doesn’t want to provide you with your emotional needs, he likely is not able till he gets out of his rut.

    • You litterly nailed everything.

    • Too bad I’m not in a Sorority ;)
      I’m kidding, thanks

    • Is it like that? Being depressed? I am assuming other people feel like that... it feels like you have no gas in your gas tank, and you can see people want you to have energy, you understand what people want from you, but nobody understands how you are a broken spirit with no energy and, like any bird with a broken wing, all you can think of is the broken wing

  • No, my guy is emotionally unavailable but I know he loves me and cares but he has been through a lot. He shows me the love in his own way and I love him so I won't give up. He has got better overtime.

    • What makes him emotionally unavailable? Not affectionate? fear of commitment?

  • You fall for his words but you sit there wait for his emotional availability. Sad. Sure suffer with him as long as you like. Meanwhile smart woman moved on long time ago when he first said what just said.

    • Move on, if it means blocking him to get to that point then do it. I recommend it.

    • Knowing you, it ain't so easy, just say you git a new boyfriend by the name of windknowsmyname. Wait thats me, well just make up one. And distance yourself.

  • with exption of that last part 😂, it seems like he got a silmiler set of fucked upness as me, trust me when i say, no, dont, its really hard for people with depresion and low key mental illness to be in relationship... or really do most "normal" things, it does sound like he wants to make it work, dont just turn your back on him

    • yep...

    • yep...

  • He's trying so don't give up. Try just not expecting emotions and wait for them to develop on their own. Being a man I have very little emotion as well. You're trying to develop respect and not just emotions. The more he respects you the more he will become attached.

    • so people like you are not able to have a relationship?

    • We are but it's kinda like we brace for the blow. My longest relationship was 3 years and towards the end she told me I changed to where she can see that I had feelings for her. But I'm used to being cheated on and used so that's what I'm used to having.

  • Well, it seems like he was just talking to you about his feelings there. I don't know if that is really "emotionally unavailable" if it seems like he is trying to make an effort to explain his feelings to you.

  • The thing with depression is people feel emotions so strongly I do believe he can feel the good emotions as strong as the bad but he will need a lot of support to let down his guard down with you it just depends how much you have to give or if it will take away too much of you

  • Honestly, yes... he needs to get better before dating other people. Otherwise you will be frustrated and dealing with lots of shit you shouldn't be dealing with... of course many relationships are like that... but they shouldn't be

  • Always believe in a man when he tells you he is not into relationships. Dont force the guy. Maybe when he finds the right girl he might change but if he said that to you.. it is not you!
