Re: Am I wanting to fight or was he wrong?
Trying to influence a relationship with your own aspirations may make a man feel that you are emotionally trying to control his life. And that is what scares him away. His confidence is slowly being eroded and he is slowly trying to regain it.
Men usually tend to be controlling and have been programmed in this regard since early boyhood. They usually rid themselves of this controlling frame of mind by the time they reach maturity. However when challenged, or when they feel that their own opinions are being negated, they revert either to silence or some other defense mechanism,
Sometimes you need to give a man time to sort out his own feelings and let him determine when a resolution on this point has been reached. He will then slowly let you know what the status of your relationship really is by his actions.
