When you shut down in a relationship it automatically shuts your partner out. They will eventually start to pull back because they are feeling a disconnect from you. This can cause all sorts of uncertainties and insecurities between you as a couple if it is ignored for a long period.
It is important to understand what a toxic partnership consists of so that you know when to remove yourself. It can come in many disguises and start out slowly in the early stages of meeting someone new. They can lure you in with never-ending compliments and romantic gestures that keep you wanting more. They come in fast and furious and you fall hard due to their aggressive attraction towards you.
Before you make any relationship commitment is very wise to ensure you are compatible in numerous areas. We all know that chemistry is very important but if you don’t have all the other elements that keep you close for the long haul, then your relationship will slowly start to fizzle out.
If you are putting way more energy into a new relationship than you are receiving from them, you are setting a precedence that will always put you in a lopsided and controlled scenario.
Everything starts out so well! It’s very exciting to have a reciprocated connection with someone you REALLY like. The romance is fast & furious and you are thinking; “at last I have finally met my person!” There is so much texting back and forth and things seem to be going amazingly well! Then all of a sudden you get ghosted and never hear from them again!
Regardless of why she is sending these very mixed signals, it’s not a good thing to go into a lopsided situation if you want different things. You have to both be on the same page for things to work or it’s not going to end well.
