Are you emotionally available?

It is easy to imagine that it is more likely to be men who are not in touch with their feelings; coming across as reserved and lacking in empathy. This is clearly too simplistic: both sexes can be oblivious to the fact that they appear rude and/or remote. These forms of behaviour may have developed as defences against childhood trauma, deficit or injury or as a result of what seemed the normal way to interact at that most impressionable of times. Whatever the reason, it is definitely something that can sabotage relationships and needs working on if you want to be in a successful, caring relationship.
