It is difficult to be in a relationship with someone who is emotionally unavailable, whether it be a friendship, family relationship or a marriage, because you don't feel enough of a connection with the person. A relationship is more fulfilling when you have a bond with the person outside of simple physical gratification.


Withdrawal from other people is a symptom of being emotionally unavailable. A person with this problem will likely have trouble bonding with people and may have many broken or superficial past relationships.

The Face

When a person rarely shows emotion in the face (sometimes called a "frozen" face), that is a symptom of being emotionally unavailable.


Someone who is emotionally unavailable will likely be disinterested or uncomfortable in conversations about emotions.

The Voice

Lack of passion or inflection in the voice when talking may be a symptom that a person is not emotionally available.

Don't Help

An emotionally unavailable person may be aloof, stoic and insistent on dealing with all of his issues by himself or resolving all of his problems on his own.
