Ask Sujeiry: What Should I Do If My Man Is Distant?

Relationship advice for a woman who feels her man is distant and pulling away.

Dear Sujeiry,

I would like to know if you can give me relationship advice. My partner is stressed with work and he has been pulling away from me. He is very distant and he has been resenting me and my love.  I don’t know what to do to make him come around and be loving and affectionate toward me the way he was before.  Please help.


A Distant and Resentful Love



Dear Distant and Resentful Love,

Since you’ve provided me with limited details regarding your situation, I can only give you a general relationship advice: talk to him.

He’s stressed at work, but what can you do to help ease his tension? What does he need from you so he doesn’t shut down? These are the questions you should be asking. If he refuses to talk about it, give him time. I don’t know how long this has been going on, but men need to hide in their cave until they’re ready to confront the issue(s) at hand. For some men that is a few hours. For others that is a few days. Only you know how much time he needs.
