What Does It Mean When She Says She's Not Ready For A Relationship? “I'm just not ready for a relationship.” What does she mean by that?! It's one of those. What does it mean when a woman says she is not ready for a relationship? There's usually just one main reason why (she doesn't feel enough sexual attraction.
This is of course confusing because you were already in one and things seemed to be going fine from where you were standing. The fact is, she might not have been feeling so fine about it. This is not the easiest thing to accept, but handling this scenario calmly and maturely will go miles in the end.
Again, back to the timing thing. Are you seeing a pattern here too?

Playing hard to get is a subtle art. Does she still text you frequently and ask to make plans? These are classic tells that give you a hint that she might just be playing hard to get.
If you play hard to get in return, you will be flipping the script and get her to pursue you instead of you having to do all the heavy lifting. Pretty soon those texts checking in and trying to indirectly see if you might bump into each other over the weekend will lead to her pursuing you full on.
Understand Where Your Ex Girlfriend Head Might Be If you are going to take anything from this article then it should be that in all of these situations the key is being able to understand context and timing.
What can I do to change her mind?
She could have kept you in the dark and led you on, or simply ghosted you without any explanation. When in doubt, just take a step back and put the situation out of your mind for a while.
All you can do is control your behavior, so focus on yourself and the rest will fall into place. I want to know three things: Tell me about your breakup. How long were you together? What were the circumstances surrounding the breakup?
And lastly, what do you intend to do moving forward after reading this article, and hopefully some of the EGR material we provide for you on the site. For another week everything was back as it had been. We connected more and more. Found ourselves getting closer and closer. Then it happened again. The ex contacted her about wanting some things back as well and was ugly and hurt her again. Back to the space. Back to withdrawing from me. All the while I received encouraging words that I was still great and left a big impression and that I am a lot of what she wants.
Just to trust her and give her space and let her come to me. She likes the chase you see, and I made myself very readily available to her. So here's my question. It's been a week and a half now. I've received some Snapchats, some messages that she's thinking of me and hopes I have a good week. But every time I reply to them, she says nothing. Give me some insight into what could be going on with her. Should I be playing harder to get and not replying to her? It's not in my nature to ignore someone but she rarely replies after contacting me.
She always comes off as incredibly straightforward and genuine so I have no reason to believe she's letting me off easy. I think she genuinely wants to heal and give us a chance. I don't contact her at all, I only reply when she does. I'm really into her and I'm content to bide my time as I'm not desperate to find something else.
I'd love some advice. This is a first for me. Usually it's cut and dry, when it's over it's over. This feels different but I'm driving myself a bit crazy wondering how long she's going to take!
You sound so tame, sincere, so sensible. And yet, something is keeping you from love. How is she not with you? Your connection sounds so good! What impresses me most is the ease in which you seem to accept her. You accept this woman.
When She Says That She Is Not Ready For a Relationship
You accept where she is. I imagine that this is because you naturally default to empathy. This is why you and your letter standout to me. We don't accept what we know. In short, we prefer interpretations to answers. Though beg for answers, we do. The trouble is, our interpretations of reality fool us and can drive us crazy in ways that answers never will. Because answers are meant to provide us peace of mind.
This thinking is pretty normal. Except, of course, force.

Forcing the relationship to happen by insisting you commit to each other sooner than maybe you should, or insisting you know where this relationship is headed, will likely jeopardize your chances together.
The good news is she gets this.
She even said she was afraid of that. Are you hearing this? Alan Labisch My starting advice is to take your time with this woman. Either is a win. Reach below the surface and bring these smaller gems to light. They are just as valuable. Everything inside of me told me to go after him, to not let our meeting slip into one of casualty. He was like no one I had ever known. He brought out the boldness in me, my own blind faith and dormant adventure.
Did I want him to be the one? Did I feel like he could be the one? Of course I did. It would have been easy to pass this off as a failed attempt at discovering love. It would have been easy to feel humiliated, rejected, and let down. I still felt thankful for him. I still felt open. Because I knew he had more to teach me.
I knew that having him in one way and not having him in another would expose me to something vital about myself, and the bravest part of me told me I needed that. I needed to lean into an uncertain relationship to confront an uncomfortable truth that would help me expand. At the time, my mother told me that sometimes people are brought into our lives as a catalyst, not always as an answer.
She says she's not ready for a relationship. How would I make her ready?
My mom was right. The man I met was not the answer I so wanted him to be but what knowing him has taught me is that sometimes a catalyst is the greater of the two. Maybe this woman is your catalyst. The tension I pick up on in your letter is simple: This is why your communication is clashing.
