My girlfriend is emotionally distant and it is messing with my head. I am a very affectionate person. In relationships I am a total romantic. This girl I've been dating for 4 months is So distant and doesn't respond to much of my affection. I know she cares about me cause she does open herself up verbally(and somewhat physically) we can talk for hours about everything. She told me she is distant and has always been so. She has never been in any good relationships before and has been in a very abusive(verbally) marriage. All her relationships besides her marriage was from her pushing the guy away. I guess the real problem is that I really care for this girl maybe more than I should and I should move on. I don't know why I really like her as much as I do maybe cause we do connect on a certain level really well and we are good friends. She is so cool I am conflicted on whether to wait for her or try and move on? It is hard for me to meet people that I can actually connect with on the level we do. I think she is worth the wait... but I don't know if its healthy for me to do so. Guys or girls, how have you dealt with an emotionally distant partner?
