3 Signs Someone Is Emotionally Unavailable

Interview: Dr. Colleen Cira, Psy.D.

Dr. Colleen Cira is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who specializes in Women and Trauma, and has worked with hundreds of people struggling with their relationships and maladaptive relationship patterns, including emotional unavailability.

What Dr. Cira can say in an interview about
Emotional Unavailability:

Being in a relationship with someone who is emotionally unavailable can be a painful experience. Here are three signs that indicate someone is emotionally unavailable:

1) Inconsistent communication. When someone is genuinely ready for a relationship, they aren’t going to play games. They are going to be honest and direct, they will make an effort to see you and they will expect you to do the same. So when someone is being inconsistent in any number of ways: taking forever to respond to you at one point, but immediately replies at another point; being vague about their level of commitment to you and the relationship; seeming to avoid certain topics, etc, something is up. Gently confront them about their inconsistencies, from a place of genuine curiosity, but if they can’t/won’t acknowledge what’s going on and talk to you about it, move on.

What Dr. Hope can say in an interview on
Domestic Violence as it pertains to the Gabby Petito story:

    • Shocking that this case has revealed that NOTHING has changed in our awareness of domestic violence and perpetrator terrorists of violence since Nicole Brown Simpson was killed. No American culture or internal police knowledge has changed, so women are still dying at a rate of 84% of all female homicides. These murders are actually FEMICIDES (the name for women partner violence that turns to murder) at the hand of a previous or current partner, love interest, or someone the woman knowingly and willingly let her into her life.

on Building Deeper, Authentic Connections With People
: 

After a tumultuous year of COVID and social distancing, it looked like we were reaching the light at the end of the tunnel as restrictions started to loosen up, but unfortunately, it didn’t last long as the new delta variant is spreading rapidly. 

People might be craving human connection more than ever and it is a vital part of our sense of wellbeing.  We need a tribe we can call our own or a support system where we can have that sense of belongingness. Having people we can talk to about anything that bothers us—relationship problems, health concerns, or maybe as simple as to what to have for dinner helps build our resilience to get through any challenge.

What Dr. Alice Fong can say in an interview
on Assumptions
:

Assumptions are the conclusions we draw based on the information we are given and our perspective and lived experience. We often think our assumptions are true without solid proof. People tend to make assumptions about so many things and this is natural. It happens as we try to make sense of things happening around us. However, while it is natural to make assumptions, they aren’t always correct. In a lot of cases, they can cause problems as we act based on what we believe is true without having the full context or understanding of the situation.
