Am I in a Relationship by Myself? 12 signs you are with a person who is unavailable

Alone At Sea

Relationships can surprisingly feel very lonely. Some can feel like they’re not going anywhere and don’t have a lot of hope for success. If you relate to any of the experiences below, these may be clear signs that your relation-ship may never take sail.

1. They are married or in a relationship with someone else.

2. They can’t commit to you or have feared commitment in past relationships.

3. They have one foot on the gas pedal, one foot on the brake.

4. They are emotionally distant or shut down, or can’t deal with conflict.

5. They’re mainly interested in sex, not relating emotionally or spiritually.

6. They are practicing alcoholics, sex addicts, or substance abusers.

7. They prefer long-distance relationships, emails or texting, or don’t introduce you to their friends and family.

8. They are elusive and sneaky, frequently working or tired, and may disappear for periods.

9. They are seductive with you but make empty promises—their behavior and words don’t match.

10. They send mixed messages, flirt with others, or don’t give a straight answer—you’re always trying to “decode” what they really mean.

11. They’re narcissistic, only considering themselves, not your needs.

12. They throw you emotional crumbs or enticing hints of their potential to be loving, then withdraw.
