Characteristics of an Emotionally Unavailable Man


An emotionally unavailable man has a commitment phobia. He is not easy to spot and he seems easy to date. This is the mistake women make that leads to heartache.

Serial Dater

  • An emotionally unavailable man is rarely alone. He is always dating someone and most of his relationships are short. He likes to "keep his options open."


  • When it comes to the type of woman he likes this type of man doesn't have a clue. Trying to get him to explain his ideal woman will lead to nothing but frustration.

Averse to Change

  • This type of man cannot be easily changed but many women will try. A man doesn't need convincing if he thinks a woman is the one for him.

Doesn't Give a Straight Answer

  • It's hard to pin down an emotionally unavailable man about the status of his relationship with a woman. He may have a girlfriend, a wife or both. If he is controlling when he dates a woman, it may indicate he's cheating on someone.


  • This type of man relies heavily on technology for communication. He'll send emails and texts. If he does call, it may be before or after a certain time of day.
