When a Man is Distant After Sex – Why This Happens and How to Change it

Posted: 10/06/2010 |Comments: 0 | Views: 1,129 |

When a man is distant after sex, it leaves the woman he's involved with full of questions. She wonders what's going on and what exactly she did wrong. In most cases, if she tries to talk to him about it, he'll act surprised or say he has no idea what she means. If you are in this position with the man you're interested in, you know it can leave you second guessing yourself. You'll feel unsure of everything. You'll question whether he didn't enjoy himself when you two were making love or if he ever really cared for you at all. It's difficult and if you leave it unaddressed, chances are that the distance he's trying to attain will be a permanent thing. You don't want that so you need to first understand why he's acting this way and also it's important to learn what you can do to change it.

Understanding what it means when a man is distant after sex isn't nearly as complicated as you may think. Some women automatically assume it means that he's withdrawing because he's so overcome with emotion. That's not the case at all. Typically if a man starts to pull back after you two have slept together it's because he's questioning the timing. If you two just started dating and you were already intimate, that may impress him in the moment, but afterwards it won't. As soon as it's over he'll start wondering whether your willingness to share yourself so openly is something you regularly do.

Men don't want to feel as though the women they are with are promiscuous. They don't ever want to wonder whether you've slept with other men as soon in your relationship with them. If you did it with him, he's going to assume you've done it with other men too.

Obviously you can't go back and undo the intimacy. That line has been crossed already. If this man is someone you believe you want to build a relationship with, you have to get to work changing his image of you.

To begin with it means no more sex until you've established a new dynamic with him. You're going to take a step backwards and date the man. Since he's become distant, don't count on him asking you out again. He may but chances are that he's doing it because he wants to be intimate and little more. You have to set the new guidelines for the relationship. Meet him at your date destination instead of him picking you up. Don't go back to his place for now. Just steer clear of any situations that would put you in a position of him expecting you to have sex.

If you can do this for a few weeks, and get to know him on a basic level, the rushed intimacy will become a thing of the past. Work on establishing a real emotional connection with him and the fact that you slept with him so soon won't seem so unflattering anymore.

    Premarital sex is something you have with another person, so you might want to think about how you make decisions with a partner. Think about what you find pleasurable about sex, where, and with whom. It’s really hard to say no to it when you are in love, engaged, attracted to or committed to someone. So why should you wait?

    Our youth-oriented culture tells us that that the sexual peak takes place between the ages of 20-30 for a man and 35-40 for a woman. NONSENSE!! As the baby-boomers trod into their golden years, they're not going to sit still for a celibate life-style. This article takes a new look at the concept of "intimacy", attempts to re-cast the "erection"-oriented myth of what constitutes hot sex, and encourages people of all ages to find and express their fullest sexual potential.

    Divorce lawyers from The American Bar Association report that a whopping 50% of the divorce cases they handle are caused, directly or indirectly, by the compulsive use of internet sex -- pornography, chat-room, web cam sex, ads for escorts and dominatrixes, etc. The partners of these men (sometimes "Cyber Widows") are confused, angry, distrusting of their spouse, neglected and sometimes abuse. This article hopes to clarify some of the issues they must face.

    Your husband has lost interest in sex. You feel rejected and so alone. It's not something that you've been able to talk to him about for several reasons. Perhaps you feel scared that he'll tell you it's because he's met someone else or maybe you're more concerned that he's fallen out of love with you.
