We Dated But Now She Just Wants To Be Friends: Here’s Why

If she wants to be friends after you have dated and you are wondering what made her change her mind then this is the right article for you.

 

In this article, I will share with you why she wants just to be friends after you have dated and what you can do about it.

 

Sometimes girls can be so confusing especially when you have no idea what is triggering these changes.

 

But if you have an idea why she prefers to be friends after you have just dated for a while then you will have a clear strategy on what to do about this issue.

 

Without further ado, let me share with you what you need to know about this situation.

 

This is why she wants to be friends after you have dated;

1. You never gave her what she wanted.

If she wants you to be friends now after you have dated then this is something you should know.

 

You never gave her what she wanted when she was in that relationship with you.

 

Let me be frank about one thing that no one has ever told you about.

 

Every girl enters a relationship with something in mind. If she entered the relationship with you thinking that you will give her what she needs and she later finds out that you can’t give her what she wants then she will want to end the relationship.

 

She will want to end the relationship because you can’t give her what she wants.

 

If she can’t get what she wants from you then it will be hard for her to be happy in that relationship even if she loves you.

 

The thing that she wanted most from you is what could have made her happy with you.

 

And when a girl is not happy and she is forcing herself to be in that relationship with you then she will want to cut off the relationship or change its status.

 

Since she doesn’t want to hurt you, she thinks that an offer of friendship will do you good.

 

2. She was unsure when she decided to date you.

This is another reason why she wants you to be just friends after you have just dated.

 

If you moved the relationship pretty fast to an extent she never had time to think through it then this could be the reason.

 

Moving a relationship very fast because of the pleasure or the vibe you get from it can make you make wrong decisions.

 

And that is why moving a relationship fast is not recommended.

So, if she was carried away by the vibe that you were giving her when you first met and she never took time to analyse you then this could be the reason why she wants you to be friends now.

 

She wants you to be friends because she realized that you are not the type of guy she wanted to date.

 

You moved the thing too fast and she was unsure of what to decide about you.

 

Also, it can be that you never moved the relationship super fast but she was unsure whether to choose you or another guy.

 

That is if she had a trail of guys behind her waiting for an answer from her.

 

She choose you but she eventually realized that she did the wrong thing and she doesn’t want to make you feel so bad about it and that is why she wants you to be friends.

 

She is aware that if she directly tells you that she wants to break up with you because she was unsure then this will hurt you.

 

3. She was not happy with you.

If you dated for a while and she now wants to be friends then know that she was not happy with you.

 

The time she was with you in that relationship she realized you couldn’t make her happy the way she expected and that is why she wants to be friends now.

 

She wants to be friends because that is the only way she can end the relationship peacefully.

 

When a girl is not happy with you in a relationship she will try all means to end the relationship.

 

No girl will want to be in a relationship in which she doesn’t feel fulfilled.

 

It can be that before you dated she thought she would be so happy and fulfilled with you but after you started dating she no longer feels the same.

If she was truly happy with you then she couldn’t have decided to change the relationship to friendship.

 

Despite any reason, she may have given you why she wants you to be friends after you have dated just know that she was never happy and fulfilled with you.

 

4. She lost interest in you.

This is something else you have to know if she wants you to be friends after you have dated.

 

She lost interest in you and that is why she doesn’t feel to be close to you.

 

The interest she had in you is no longer there and this makes her feel unconnected with you.

 

She no longer feels you romantically and that is why she wants to end the relationship.

 

Your relationship bond with her plays a big role in this part.

 

If your relationship with her wasn’t that strong and you never bothered to fix anything that was broken between the two of you then this could have been the reason why she lost interest in you.

 

When a girl loses interest in you she will not want to do anything romantic with you.

 

She will want to be friends with you because she knows that it won’t involve so much between the two of you.

 

The moment a girl loses her interest in you the way she looks at you, the way she handles you and the way she feels around you will change.

 

If she was so close to you she will want to distance herself from you and the whole relationship will fall apart peace by peace.

 

Also, it can be that the way you handled her is what made her lose interest in you and she no longer feels you romantically.

 

Did you know that a relationship can end up feeling like a friendship?

 

And once it does feel that way then everyone will want to withdraw from that relationship to a friendship.

 

Luckily that is something that can be fixed.

5. You never met her expectations.

An Expectation is something else that can make a relationship feel unfulfilling.

 

If you have the right expectation of something then you can cultivate the right things from it.

 

But if you have wrong or unrealistic expectations then this can make you cultivate the wrong things.

 

If she had unrealistic expectations of how that relationship was going to be then this could have been the main reason why she wants you to be friends after you dated.

 

She realized that none of her expectations can be met in that relationship and that is why she wants you to be friends.

 

For instance, if she had the expectations that you would take her a trip to the Maldives, take her to expensive resorts around the world and she thought you were that rich guy and after she started dating you she saw the true you then this could have been the reason why she wants to end the relationship.

 

This is just an example of the expectations but there are so many unrealistic expectations she had in her mind about you and how the relationship will turn out to be and that is why she now wants to be friends.

 

If she expected anything from you and none of the things she expected from you has been met then this is the main reason why she wants you to be friends.

 

6. The relationship with you never felt right.

This is another reason why she wants you to be friends after you dated.

 

The relationship never felt right for her and that is why she wants to change the relationship status.

 

There are so many things that can make a relationship not feel right.

 

This can stem from her belief in any external factors.

 

If at any point she felt that the relationship with you doesn’t feel right then this is the reason why she wants you to be friends.

 

These are some of the things that can make a relationship not feel right;

  • Religious differences.
  • Too friendly with each other.
  • Not comfortable with each other.
  • Being too obvious with each other.
  • When you are in a relationship because of something else and not love.
  • Completely different and opposite from each other.

 

These are some of the things that can make a relationship not feel right.

 

So, if there were any of these things in your relationship then this could have been the reason why the relationship never felt right to her and that is why she wants you to be friends.

 

7. She fell in love with someone else.

If you never thought a girl could fall in love with someone else while she is in a relationship then this is something you should know.

 

A girl can fall in love with someone else while she is in a relationship.

 

When a girl falls in love with someone else it will be hard for her to give you her attention.

 

Her attention and interest will shift from you and she will find herself focusing all her energy on the guy that she fell in love with recently.

 

If this is the case then it will be hard for her to love you.

 

She will find herself drifting away from you because handling both relationships at once will be an issue for her.

 

If you dated and she now wants you to be friends then know that she doesn’t love you anymore. She is in love with someone else and that is why she wants you to be friends.

 

Don’t conclude this if you haven’t seen the following signs.

 

Signs she is in love with another guy;

  • She no longer gives you her attention.
  • She is distanced from you.
  • She no longer respects you.
  • She treats you badly and threatens to break up with you.
  • She ignores your texts and calls deliberately.
  • She doesn’t want to go out with you anymore.
  • She talks bad about you to her friends.
  • She no longer prioritizes you.
  • She handles you like a friend. 

 

If you came across these signs before she told you to be friends then know that she is in love with someone else.

 

She no longer feels you and that is why she wants to end the relationship by turning it into friendship.

 

8. She doesn’t see a future with you.

This is another reason why she wants you to be friends after you have dated.

 

Let me tell you something about girls.

 

Ladies who know what they want will go for it. A mature lady will always have an idea of what she wants from you.

 

She will observe you keenly before she even decides to date you.

 

When she says yes to you then know that she has seen that you are truly worth it.

 

If you managed to deceive her with what she wanted to see and hear from you then know that she will one day notice it.

 

So, if she observed you after being together for a while and she noticed that you can’t give her the future that she wants then know this is the reason why she wants you to be friends.

 

She knows that if she tells you that you can’t give her the future she wants, this will hurt you.

 

And that is why she wants you to be friends.

 

When a girl sees a future with you she will want to stick with you no matter what happens.

 

She will do everything to make sure that the relationship keeps going.

 

If she wants to be friends after you have dated and you have noticed that she is that determined and ambitious lady then know that this could have been the reason.

 

9. You never handled her the way she wanted.

If you don’t handle a girl the way she wants she will want to end the relationship.

 

This is something that you can feel deep down in your gut. If you can handle her you will just feel so and vice versa.

 

The way you handle a girl is what will make her want to be in a relationship with you or not.

 

For instance, if she is more experienced than you then you should expect her to turn you down.

 

When a girl is more experienced than you and she thinks that you can’t handle her the way she wants she will end the relationship.

 

In this case, she is ending the relationship by turning it into friendship.

 

A girl will want a man that can handle her the way she wants so that she feels like she is in a relationship.

 

She observed how you handle her and she noticed that you couldn’t handle her the way she wanted and that is why she wants you to be friends.

 

What to do when a girl wants you to be friends after you have dated.

When a girl wants you to be friends after you have dated, find out why. If you find out that it’s something you can convince her to change her mind about then don’t accept to be friend-zoned. But if it’s something that you can’t convince her mind about then you will just have to walk away.

 

If she wants you to be friends after you have dated don’t agree on that.

 

Find out why she prefers you to be friends after you have been dating for a while.

 

Show her that you don’t want to be friends with her because you want more than just a friendship from her.

 

If you love her then don’t accept her to keep you in a friend zone yet you can convince her to change her mind about the two of you being friends.

 

Try your best to convince her to change her mind about that.

 

But if you find out that she fell in love with someone else and that is why she wants you to be friends then you will have nothing to do but to walk away from her.

 

Don’t accept being friends with her because this might wash away her guilt. Walk away from her and cut off the communications with her.

 

This clearly shows that she doesn’t care about you and she never loved you at all.

 

She was only taking you for granted.

Accepting to be friends with her after you have dated will be degrading yourself.

 

Lastly…

 

Anyway, if you want to be friends with her then you can go ahead and do it.

 

But if you want to cut off the connection with her for then don’t accept to be friends after you have dated.

 

She will find you so lonely and desperate.

 

Walk away from her and she will one day realize that she lost something.

 

If you accept to be friends with her after you have dated then expect her to treat you like a friend.

 

Don’t expect something special from her at any point.

 

If you are ready for that then be her friend.
