When a Man Pulls Away How Long Does It Last

How long would it have taken a man to pull away? When he stops contacting you and becomes cold and distant, it can feel like the end of the world, sending you into a tailspin of self-doubt, confusion, and frustration as you try to figure out why. However there is no definitive answer as far as how long it will be before he returns or contacts you again, there are ways to tell if it’s over for good or if he’ll return given time and space.

Signs He Is Pulling Away

When a Man Pulls Away, He is Usually Trying to Protect Himself… But he may be able to stop himself from pulling away. For example, if you usually finish conversations quickly by saying, ” Well, I’ve got to get going, ” he may learn that he doesn’t have to stop paying attention so quickly.

Change up your approach just slightly, and he’ll find that conversation doesn’t suddenly end so soon. Instead of relying on habits when talking with him, look for ways to keep communication open and flowing by making observations about what’s happening in both of your lives without asking questions.

Why Men Pull Away

You think, why doesn’t he miss me? And when he finally comes back around, you’re elated. But that lasts only so long before he starts pulling away again. There are several reasons men pull away from their women, and I want to tell you about them here. It may surprise you to learn what they are. But understanding them will allow you to get close faster and stay connected longer than ever before.

Five Ways to Prevent His Pulling Away

Sometimes when a guy pulls away, he wants to come back. It doesn’t mean that his feelings have changed—it means that he still loves you but needs space to sort through some stuff. But sometimes, when a guy pulls away, it’s not because he wants to come back: Sometimes there is someone else (and sometimes his pulling away is part of an overall disengagement), and other times he may be emotionally unavailable.

In any case, here are five ways to help prevent him from pulling away (or make him want to pull closer) in the first place:

  1. Show your interest in what he does and cares about by asking questions about his interests or hobbies, sharing your passions with him, or making plans based on things you know he likes to do. You can also ask for advice on something important to you or seek out common ground with him.

    For example, if one of his hobbies is snowboarding, invite him along on your next ski trip. If one of yours is cooking dinner parties for friends, ask for pointers on planning a dinner party at home; if both of yours are watching football games on Sundays, plan so that you can watch them together at home instead of going out separately etc.

  2. Be more affectionate with him, such as giving him a hug when you see each other, kissing when saying goodbye (or hello), holding hands while walking down the street or across campus, cuddling up on your couch while watching TV, etc.

  3. Listen more intently when he talks—show that you’re interested in what he has to say—and show that you care by reflecting him some of his feelings (e.g., You sound frustrated) or talking about how those feelings make sense given certain situations (I’m sure it’s frustrating not being able to get into an apartment).

  4. Make plans for next weekend, tell your friends and family concerning your friendship with him, and so on to show him that you choose to be with him.

  5. Ask for his help on something important to you, such as asking for advice on applying for jobs or internships; asking if he can proofread your cover letter; asking if he can recommend someone who could help you achieve one of your goals; etc.

How To Get Your Man Back When He’s Pulled Away

When he first started acting strange and cold, I was devastated. I couldn’t understand why he seemed to be pulling away from me or why our relationship felt different than before. While doing some research, I revealed that many people face similar incidents when their relationships change or no longer appear to be as comparable as they once were.

How can you get your man back?

It all depends on what happened and where things stand between you now.

Here are some tips for getting your man back after he’s pulled away;

1) If something is going on in his life that has made him pull away from you, then try talking with him about it. Listen to what he has to say without interrupting him. Show him how his activities affect you and ask if there’s anything else you can do to assist him in attempting to resolve his issue (s).

2) If your guy doesn’t have anything going on in his life (or won’t talk about it), find out what’s changed in your relationship since he’s been acting distant toward you. Ask yourself if you’ve done anything different lately. Are you spending less time together? Have your feelings for each other changed? Do you fight more often than usual? Do either of these scenarios sound familiar to you? If so, take a step back and think about what might be causing these changes in your relationship. it is possible that your boyfriend may not feel as strongly about you anymore because he thinks something has changed between you two.


We can all agree that men are strange. However, even if we could put our finger on exactly what they’re doing when they’re pulling away, it wouldn’t be easy to figure out why they’re doing it.
