The person that you want to have a relationship with must be willing and available to have a relationship with you. If they are unavailable this can be confusing. The emotional and sexual chemistry can be off the charts but this is often mistaken for intimacy. Jocelyn and Dr. Mari discuss the ins and outs of why people are unavailable and commitment-phobic. Instead of making compromises you wouldn’t typically make for your friends and family, Jocelyn and Dr. Mari teach you to first understand the person that you are dealing with. For a relationship to work with an emotionally unavailable person, you will need to adjust the way that you interact with them. This does not mean that you forfeit who you are, rather, you set appropriate expectations and boundaries as a relationship must go both ways. Also, look for their podcast Setting Boundaries With Unavailable People.
