I’ve been dating this girl for a little longer than 2 weeks, talking for almost a month. I’m 23, she’s 20. We’re both emotionally scarred from previous relationships and she has admitted that she’s terrified of commitment.
We hit it off strong, spending almost every night together, simple casual netflix dates, nothing special. Then I talked about some sensitive subjects and she’s grown distant with me. We haven’t seen each other in over a week but she’s been, what seems to be, reluctantly texting me. Her entire demeanor over text has changed from happy and interested, to what I can only interpret as obligatory replies and short.
I realize it’s a short term relationship and I shouldn’t have invested myself so deeply into it so soon but she’s special. I really can’t figure out why, but I can’t get her off my mind. I need some help.
One thought on ““Is she reluctant and distant?””
If shes afraid of commitment then the serious subject matter probably scared her. Ive been there, Im extremely commitment-phobic myself. I doubt shes as reluctant as youre perceiving her to be but shes probably put her guard back up. It doesnt mean she doesnt want to talk to you, just that shes overly cautious. Be patient with her. Try to keep things light and casual. Move at a glacially slow pace.
