One Year of Dating, Now She Wants To Be Friends

Q: After a year of dating exclusively, I told my girlfriend that I was in love with her and ready for serious relationship.  I had asked that we take it slow at the beginning due to a bad break-up.  Now that I am all in, she is pulling away – saying she isn’t ready to give me the attention I need and wants her freedom.

A: Sweet man, my heart aches for you.  You opened yourself, you were vulnerable, exposed, honest, raw – only to have her pull away.  That had to be crushing.  The issue here is the lack of clarity, or definition at the beginning of the relationship.  She became accustomed to the way things were and when things began to be a shift in the relationship, she was not comfortable with this new reality.
