Being In A Relationship With An On-Off Person

Getting emotionally attached is one of humans’ natural traits. You tend to get sentimental when a favorite character dies in a show, you burst crackers when your favorite sports team wins and you can’t ever share your favorite bar of chocolate. These are all examples of you getting highly emotionally attached with things that are either fictional, non-living or someone you haven’t even actually met in real life. When you can get so attached to these, think why not will you be to a living, breathing person who confessed once or at least showed signs they liked you.
Of course everyone’s emotional level is different. Some develop feeling at a snail pace, others at the speed of light and still others keep guard not to become vulnerable. But however it may be one thing is for sure that when you do develop feelings, you sure keep yourself at the edge of the cliff, waiting either to be proved right and saved by them or take a dive and fall in the bottomless pit. You become that emotionally susceptible that you leave it to them manhandling your emotions.
This is where you start hoping for the best and become prepared for the worst. Only the latter may not always be true. If every piece falls in place nothing better but the worst case scenario is that they may change their thoughts about you on a whim when you are obviously defenceless.
It is the worst thing possible because most of you do not have it scheduled in your planner to be in love in at 6am and fall out of it at 8pm sharp, only to repeat the process concomitantly. But those who have an on-off switch installed in their hearts do have this unfathomable but actually very much possible tendency. They are usually either confused about their own feelings, become bored easily and need change and excitement at all times or simply fall cold for some unknown reason, often even to themselves.
It would be wrong to jump to the conclusion that all that they were having was a façade and were only delivering crisp dialogues and an award winning performance to fool you. As mentioned before, they sometimes are oblivious to their behaviour. The reason sometimes could be the abandonment they may have faced previously or a bad experience that turned them into an ice sculpture.
Whatever may be the reason, the thing to understand here is that even if you are a person who wears their heart on their sleeves, you need to be cautious and not let your guard down so easily. Though a lie, try to show a tougher exterior till you analyse them and their feelings about you and save yourself from the agony of utter confusion and heartbreak. You don’t need to shut down your romantic and soft side completely though, and become dubious but only be wary and not too gullible. Give them some time to find their footing but if they can’t, it is better that you detach your emotions and let them go.
