Most of us have heard the term “emotionally available” thrown around quite often when it comes to dating and relationships. It’s natural to be in a state of emotional unavailability when you have a lot on your plate or just need time to rebalance. Although, there are those people who constantly show up as emotionally unavailable no matter what the circumstances might be.

It can sometimes be hard to spot if a potential mate is emotionally unavailable, with some people trying to rationalize their hurtful behaviors and expecting them to change eventually. While this may be the case, do you want to waste time waiting for something that may or may not ever happen? If you answered no to that question, then here are six signs that will help you figure out whether or not the person you are dating is emotionally unavailable.
