Emotionally Unavailable

Do you think that emotionally unavailable really just equals he/she is just not that into you?

YES. Absolutely any excuse whatsoever for a man not to pursue a relationship is code for "he's not that into you/he doesn't see a future with you." Period. End of story, finito.

Usually, yes...but not always. Some men (and women, too) really just are emotionally unavailable. To everyone. It can be something that has nothing to do with you. Some people have attachment disorders or other issues that prevent them from being truly close to anyone, even if they really want to be close. In order for the relationship to thrive, he or she will need to get help with that.

i think it depends... if the person is emotionally unavailable because of an emotional scar from an ex, then it takes time to heal.

Yes, that is what it means. Only a few men really cannot share their emotions even when they are into the relationship. 99% of the time it means he is not in love.
