What Does It Mean When A Guy Says, "I Don't Trust My Emotions"?

The guy may say that he doesn’t trust his emotions because those emotions have failed him in the past.

He may have been in a past relationship that went really bad because he let his emotions get the best of him.

He may have lacked true judgment and made the mistake of not thinking things through at crucial moments.

There is a part of him that regrets that he didn’t.

Now he doesn’t want to make the same mistake again.

He doesn’t want to go through that pain or confusion.

He may have told you that he doesn’t trust his emotions because something has made him remember this past.

He may be finding dangerous similarities between his interaction with you and his ex.

There may be a part of him that just wants to avoid thinking about it.

He doesn’t want to make the wrong decision yet again.

Another reason why he told you that he doesn’t trust his emotions may be because he honestly may not know where this relationship is truly going.

There may be a part of him that really wants to open up to you.

However, there is another part that is so worried that if he opens up, he would make himself vulnerable.

He may honestly have never felt like this before.

He may be feeling an emotion that is completely alien to him.

He may have developed a very potent fondness of you and this may be making him feel like he is putting himself out there way too much.

He may not want to become vulnerable to his feelings and emotions.

He may simply not know how that would affect him in this kind of relationship.

He is a guy conflicted.

He is a guy that may have developed strong feelings for you that he doesn’t know how to contain.

When he tells you that he doesn’t trust his emotions, he may be trying to convey the message that he believes he loves you or cares about you deeply but doesn’t want to come to terms with it.

The thought may be simply too much for him to deal with.

A guy who tells you that he doesn’t trust his emotions may also be dealing with emotions left over from a previous relationship that he hasn’t gotten over.

He may still love his ex.

He may still want her to be in his life.

However, he may also want to move on with you.

In other words, he may be totally conflicted on who he wants to be with.

He may feel like he has a connection with his ex but also believes that he has some connection with you.

It is a difficult challenge for him to let go of the ex because he has so much history with her.

It is also so enticing for him to move on with you because you seem to be the type he would want to be with.

Perhaps you even have some similarities with his ex.

Either way, he really is conflicted and tells you that he doesn’t trust his emotions.

As much as he may want to move forward with you, he may find it difficult to completely let go of the past with his ex.

He may need to really understand just how special his relationship is with you in order for him to start getting real clarity about his emotions.
