Psychology dating separated men
There are lots of ways men mistreat women, as is frequently discussed in various sites like The Good Men Project.
The more obvious kinds—like psychological or physical abuse, or the emotional manipulation discussed in Yashar Ali’s insightful Why Women Aren’t Crazy—get a fair bit of attention, and deservedly so.
But there’s another kind I see all the time in relationships everywhere that goes less recognized: men who sit too long on the emotional fence in a relationship, wasting precious years of their partner’s time before ultimately heading for the door.
And it robs her of time to find another man better suited to her.
Yes, I recognize, it’s not easy to arrive at the “exit” decision.
It’s a rather grave one, and one we don’t want to make lightly.
Leaving someone is rarely a move you can take back.
But I think part of being a “good man” (actually, just being an adult) is to act in union with your inner beliefs.
If you truly don’t think you’re aligned with your partner, you have an obligation to act on that feeling.
