Push – Pull

push-pull

 

{A long term relationship dynamic in which one member “pushes” the other other away if intimacy becomes too great or the relationship threatens to become “too serious”, yet also “pulls” the pursuer back with signs of interest if the target begins to give up on pursuing the relationship. Typically this habit is the result of someone with a fear of commitment who craves the relationship yet is unwilling to give up the option of keeping all of their options open. Often a form of subtle indecisiveness, in this manner they can effectively stake a claim on the other member with their scent and keep them in relationship purgatory while still being able to jump on a better opportunity if one happens to come along.}
