It takes two emotionally available partners to make a relationship succeed. So if your partner is emotionally unavailable, your relationship is doomed to fail.
If you want a committed relationship, you should stay away from someone who is emotionally unavailable or you might end up with a heartbreak.
Below are 5 signs your partner is emotionally unavailable
1. Your partner is still in love with an ex
You shouldn’t fall in love with someone who is still in love with an ex. Such a person can’t love you because they are not available emotionally. If your partner still seeks relationship advice from an ex, complains about an ex, gets hurt when he/she sees an ex with someone else or maybe your partner’s conversations always focuses on your ex, it’s a sign your partner still loves his/her ex.
2. Your partner dislikes marriage or a committed relationship
Some people make the mistake of thinking they can change their partner over time. If you are dating someone who avoids having conversations about having a committed relationship with you, it’s best you leave that relationship because your partner isn’t available emotionally. If your partner makes statements about not wanting an exclusive relationship or getting married, please walk away from that relationship and stop wasting your time.
3. Your partner only blames his/her ex for the failure of his/her past relationship
When a relationship fails, the two partners are always at fault even though one person might be more at fault.

A partner who can’t take responsibility isn’t available emotionally.
