We’ve all rented a room or two at the “Heartbreak Hotel,” maybe even on more than one occasion.
Sometimes, we say that we didn’t see the breakup coming (even when it’s approaching like a raging bull wearing a neon green shirt and pressing a blow horn). Other times, they truly do appear out of nowhere; everything was fine, until suddenly …it wasn’t.
No matter how a breakup comes about, they usually have something in common — three secret reasons your ex is likely hiding — secrets that keep him from fully expressing how he feels.
According to YourTango Understanding these issues can help you get over a bad breakup … or, possibly help you get your ex back. Here are the three secret reasons men break up with really great women:
1. He felt pressured and inadequate:
Were you constantly chasing him? Did you want more love
, or sex
than what he was doling out? Did you feel like you were frequently trying to “fix” things in the relationship?
If you can identify with any of these, there was definitely an imbalance in your relationship, and more than likely he felt pressured and inadequate in your presence. And it’s important that you know … that’s not at all your fault.
Most men run from emotional pressure like they’re running for their lives (because, in their minds, they are running for their lives).
Emotional pressure challenges the underdeveloped part of a man’s masculinity and makes him feel ill-equipped to deal. In his mind, he feels like anything he does isn’t (and never will be) good enough for you.
This causes men to naturally shut down and lock their hearts up like Fort Knox, rather than deal with any more feelings of pressure or inadequacy.
