Walking away from a confused man
If there is one thing I have learned over the last few years of being in different relationships. Then it’s that to make a relationship work, both people need to be completely certain and on the same page for it to last.
Unfortunately, as I painfully learned, that is not always the case.
One of the most difficult situations is when you are dating a man who is unsure of his feelings or intentions for you. This type of uncertainty causes confusion and frustration, leaving you feeling anxious and unsure of what to do next.
Like I always tell you, it’s important to prioritize your well-being and mental health in any relationship. Especially a romantic relationship.
In this blog post, I’m sharing why walking away from a confused man is sometimes the best thing you can do.
How to walk away from a confused man
When walking away from a confused man, it’s important to think it through really well. You don’t want to make a decision that you will regret the next day.
Especially if you are in a committed relationship with someone you love.
So, if you’re currently in a relationship with a confused man, then the following steps will provide a process and guidance to help you navigate your situation.
1. Pray for guidance
As a woman of faith, we can get caught up in desiring marriage and a husband that we don’t pay attention to the will of God. So, the first step is to seek God’s guidance in all areas of your life, including your relationships.
Take some time to pray and ask God for wisdom and discernment on whether or not to walk away from the confused man in your life.
2. Evaluate your own feelings
Next, take some time to evaluate your own feelings and emotions. Are you experiencing negative emotions such as anxiety, stress, or unhappiness in the relationship? Or are you compromising your values, and future plans in order to keep the relationship afloat?
If the answer is yes, those may be warning signs that it’s time to consider walking away.
3. Be honest with yourself
Once you identified how the situation really makes you feel and are determined that walking away is the best decision for you, be honest with yourself and the guy you’re dating.
Don’t ignore the obvious and convince yourself to stay with a non-committal man. Instead, have an honest conversation with him and explain your reasons for walking away.
4. Have a clear and respectful conversation
When telling him about your decision to end things, it’s important to have a clear and respectful conversation with him. Express your feelings honestly and calmly, and avoid blaming or attacking him.
Be respectful of his feelings as well, and give him the space to process the news. Remember that you might not come to a mutual understanding or even a turning point. But your goal is to tell him how you feel and walk away.
5. Cut off contact
Following your split it’s necessary to cut off contact with him. This can be difficult, but it’s the only way you’ll be able to move forward and avoid any further confusion or emotional pain.
If needed, block his social media and delete his phone number. The no-contact rule is tough to adhere to, but it works.
7. Seek support
Going through a breakup can be tough. Especially if it was a serious relationship with someone you love.
So it’s essential to seek support from family, friends, or even a therapist. Surround yourself with positive influences that can help you heal and move on.
8. Stay strong and hopeful
Finally, it’s important to stay strong and hopeful. Whenever you are experiencing a hard time and thinking about going back. Remember that you deserve to be in a relationship that makes you feel safe and wanted, free of uncertainty and doubt.
How do you know when a man is confused about you?
It can be difficult to know when a man is confused about you because everyone expresses their emotions differently. Especially men.
However, there are some common signs that a man is unsure of his feelings for you, that you need to pay attention to:
- He is hot and cold and seems interested and engaged one minute, but distant or uninterested the next.
- He is emotionally unavailable and avoids opening up or discussing his feelings to keep you at a distance.
- He is unclear about what he wants from the relationship, leaving you feeling unsure or confused.
If you are experiencing any of these red flags, it’s time to evaluate the relationship. While he may not mean to make you feel unwanted, it’s still a slippery slope into a toxic relationship.
When to walk away from a confused man?
Deciding when to walk away from a confused man is a complex decision, and it ultimately depends on what you value in your love life.
In my experience with a confused man, I learned that I value safety and security and wanted to feel wanted. That’s how I knew it was time to break up.
If you are unsure, here are a few signs that it may be time to walk away from a confused man:
- His indecisiveness is making you anxious.
- The relationship has become stagnant or unfulfilling.
- His behavior is making you question if he is the right person for you.
The bottom line is that you have to trust your own intuition and prioritize your own emotional and spiritual well-being. The last thing you want to do is to minimize the effect of his mind games have on your mental health.
How does a man feel when you walk away?
In general, a man feels a sense of rejection, disappointment, and confusion when a woman decides to end a relationship. Whether he means to be indecisive or not, the fact that you are willing to walk away affects him.
A lot of times he also feels hurt or upset if he was invested in the relationship or had true feelings for you. Which makes sense, because just like you he now is going through a breakup. So he will need time to process his feelings and emotions.
However, remember that, even if it’s difficult for him to accept, it’s important you prioritize yourself.
Does a man respect a woman who walks away?
Yes. I do believe that a man respects a woman who is able to make difficult decisions and prioritize her own well-being, even if that means ending a relationship.
Walking away from a relationship that is not fulfilling or healthy demonstrates your strength, self-respect, and confidence, which are qualities that most men find attractive.
And yes, some men will not react positively to you walking away, but it’s important to honor your own needs, rather than trying to please or impress him.
Will a man miss you if you walk away?
It’s possible that a man will miss you if you walk away. But it depends on his feelings towards you. If he is emotionally invested in the relationship and values your connection, he will feel a sense of loss or longing if you walk away.
However, if he is not invested in the relationship or not ready to commit, he may not miss you and may move on to a new love interest quickly. But regardless of how he responds, make the decision that aligns best with your values and goals.
Will a man commit if I walk away?
There is no guarantee that a man will commit if you walk away from the relationship. And honestly, walking away from a confused man should never be used as a manipulation tactic to try and force a man to commit or change his behavior.
It’s never a good idea to use it as an ultimatum, or bargaining chip if you don’t mean it.
If he truly values you and wants to commit to a long-term relationship, he will make that decision on his own, without being coerced or manipulated.
