Red Flags For Mr.Unavailable, From Dr. Gail Saltz (WATCH)

Psychiatrist Dr. Gail Saltz described how to notice the red flags for "Mr. Unavailable" when she met with me on Mondays With Marlo. Oftentimes, these men are serial daters who don't want to settle down because of conflicts with intimacy. Look at the history of the men you're dating, and if you notice that they have bailed on past partners at crucial times of commitment (engagement, moving in together), you should be wary. Emotionally unavailable men will also draw closer when you pull back, and vice versa. If you notice these signs, you shouldn't expect a serious relationship with this person.
