Dating an emotinal person
The Eternally Brokenhearted: He hasn't gotten over the chick who broke his heart and he holds what she did against every other woman he dates in subtle ways. Everything seems completely impossible to The Eeyore, which makes being around him unbearable. That special someone who will be his personal cheerleader and spend all of her time trying to get him to look on the bright side even though he is completely incapable of seeing life that way.
The woman he wants: Someone who reinforces his anger at his ex by committing the same "sins" she did. Unfortunately for both of them, he'll never be able to work through his anger completely with that kind of black-and-white attitude in which he's the sole victim. What he really needs: To stop feeling sorry for himself and take responsibility for what happens in his life.
What he really needs: To find closure with the woman who "wronged him," but not necessarily through confrontation. The sooner he realizes that life is what you make it, the sooner he'll have some much-needed company in his bed.
Rather, he needs to look at the demise of the relationship objectively so he's forced to acknowledge his role and can move forward in a new relationship with no (or minimal) baggage. The Eeyore: Thanks for noticing him, the dull, pathetic, dude in the corner who is not actually dull and pathetic.
The Commitment Phobe: This guy pretends to be happy on his own, living large as a bachelor, just like his hero George Clooney, but he's actually just terrified of letting a woman get to know the real him.
The woman he wants: Someone who will never expect their relationship to evolve past the casually dating stage, who will never expect to meet his parents or even necessarily his friends, and won't want to talk about pesky things like feeeeelings.
Once she's more stable, the skeletons in his emotional closet emerge and he has to find someone new to save instead.The Frisky: 12 stars posing using hands as bras Don't get us wrong: Women can be emotionally stunted too. And, more importantly, to understand the relationship dynamic with his mother.But we have found that the emotionally stunted man-child will have one of two (immature) responses when the issue is brought to his attention: 1. If he has issues to work out with her, he needs to do it before he invites another woman into his life.It's only by breaking the connection that you can keep yourself free for the right person.(The Frisky) -- Let's face it -- we've all got issues and sometimes need multiple attempts to surmount emotional obstacles. Here's the important thing to remember: The Addict will ALWAYS be looking for a high. Even if he is sober from drugs/alcohol/gambling/food, if he hasn't done "the work," he may get hooked on you. That's why it's bad news if that relationship has gone wrong in some way. Whether he hates her or is obsessed with her, he is blind to the fact that he is replaying his relationship with his mom with every woman he gets involved with.
