Follow up ? to "Can a guy really just lose interest just like that? Or is it something else?"

Someone on here mentioned that their hubby told them it's a thing guys do to see how a woman will react. How should I react when he pulls back like that? Text him, call him or nothing at all?

  • i could be many reasons why a guy loses interest or suddenly pulls back; it could be he met someone more interesting, you said/did something that turned him off, busy with work, he just isn't feeling you anymore or he is just testing you who knows... but if a guy suddenly gets cold with me i will NOT chase his tail. i will not let him think that he is all that and a bag of chips- doesn't matter if i feel differently inside.

  • It means he was not REALLY interested. He may have had some interest and you did not give him what he wants or maybe he felt you were pulling back.. only real way to know is to ask him.

  • Nothing at all. Always leave a man wanting more and you will always have them chasing you.

  • i wouldnt do anything, if its stress etc, i will give him time to sort it out, he can come back when he is ready. it is is someone else, he wont come back, if it was something i did, he will come back and tell me. sure ill sit by the phone and let him call a couple of times so he doesnt think im desperate, but i will answer eventually and work it out. or not and it wont be that big of a deal, just move on. i dont know, i didnt read the last post and i feel information is missing

  • he could really just lose interest. i lost interest in my fiancĂ©e for no reason at all. i actually feel bad about it. im going to end it but im procrastinating because i dont want to hurt his feelings. every time he calls/txts it just makes the feeling to get rid of him more intense.
