If you ask me, the most confusing creatures on Earth are men, whereas one of the most powerful forces in the universe is the power of walking away from a man.
The scenario goes something like this: He calls you and texts you frequently, he makes a serious effort and he respects you.
He tries hard until he wins you, and then, a few days or months later, he either barely acknowledges you or he’s a changed man (for the worse).
Stop this vicious cycle with Infatuation Scripts. No man will ever again treat you like a second choice.
And then you start wondering what you did wrong to make him change like that. And the answer is: Absolutely nothing (at least in the majority of cases)!
And that’s where the power of walking away from a man comes into the story. Because men often don’t realize the real value of what’s in front of them until a woman reminds them of it.
When a woman walks away from a man, she is sending him a message that she’s perfectly capable of being on her own and that she doesn’t NEED him, but she WANT(ED) him.
When a man realizes that, then he immediately starts thinking about what HE has done wrong and he realizes the mistake of taking a woman for granted and letting her go. And that is when he starts to chase you!
Follow THIS GUIDE and you’ll become irresistible to him!
It Takes A Strong Woman To Walk Away From A Man And Teach Him A Lesson!
Strong women don’t beg, they don’t nag, and they don’t dance to other people’s selfish tunes. Instead, they take their well-being and happiness into their own hands.
They have standards and the first time they notice a man is not meeting those standards, they act.
They don’t wait for the man to somehow magically change because they know that the chances of that happening are slim.
Instead, they know that men fall in love in your absence and not your presence.
Men start respecting you and treating you the way you deserve when you apply the no contact rule and show them that they no longer have you.
Sometimes that’s the only way to let men know how you truly feel, and what they’ve lost because they didn’t know how or refused to fight for it.
It takes a strong woman to walk away from a man and teach him a valuable lesson by sending him a message that he will need to step up his game if he wants her back.
That he will need to pursue her like a real man instead of acting like an immature boy because she won’t tolerate any of it. That he will need to respect her and fight for her because if he doesn’t, someone else will.
And that’s the power of walking away from a man! This power is every woman’s birthright and the key to switching from an almost relationship to a committed relationship.
When You Should Walk Away
As mentioned before, one of the main reasons why you should walk away is to teach a man a valuable lesson and prevent potential heartbreak.
You should walk away from a man to protect your self-respect and put your own life and happiness first.
Walking away is definitely not a selfish or cowardly thing to do. Walking away means loving yourself and respecting yourself. It’s one of the best things you can do for yourself and those who care about you.
Here are some of the reasons why you should definitely walk away:
1. He’s taking you for granted
First and foremost, one of the main reasons why you should always walk away is if he’s taking you for granted.
This problem is getting more and more common, so we could say that it’s a trend (no matter how weird it sounds).
Now, one of the main reasons why men tend to take their women for granted at a certain point in their relationship is the following: Because they feel like they’ve won you!
Needless to say, men live for chase! It’s in their blood to fight for a woman, to work their magic and win her! It’s in their blood to compete with other men and to be the best; to be the chosen ones.
So, once you start dating a man and if he truly likes you, he will do anything to win you.
He will answer all your phone calls, he will text you on a regular basis, and he will like every single picture on your social media accounts.
Heck, he will even die for you if needed.
Okay, that was an exaggeration, but you get the point.
And then, when a man realizes that a woman is starting to show an interest, that she has fallen for him and that he can finally call her his, he starts to take her for granted.
Why? Because he thinks that once he has you, all that chasing automatically stops and all he needs to do is enjoy boasting about what an amazing woman he just won.
But, men forget one thing. They forget that once a woman starts feeling neglected, she will lose interest and walk away from them!
And guess what happens when she walks away? The chase mode gets activated again.
2. He’s ignoring you (“and was never really into you”)
When we’re really crazy about someone, we tend to do stupid things (yes, I’m speaking from experience).
So, if a man ignores you and is not really into you, you might start thinking that you’re doing something wrong and that if you boost your performance, he will start noticing you.
But, this doesn’t happen, of course. The more you shower him with attention or pretend to be his best friend (while patiently waiting for him to change his mind about dating you), the more you push him away from you.
Now, there are two reasons why a man might ignore you:
- “He’s not interested in you.”
- He’s playing hard to get (faking not being interested in you).
As you can see, I put the first point in quotation marks and I did it for the following reason: Sometimes men don’t know whether or not they’re genuinely interested in you because you shower them with too much affection.
In that case, even if they are really crazy about you (or were), they will gradually start losing interest because you’re the one pursuing them when it should be the other way round, remember?
Also, some men tend to play hard to get for an eternity because they basically want to boost their egos for as long as possible. And that’s why walking away is the best thing you can do!
When you walk away, a man will realize whether he’s genuinely interested in you and he will DEFINITELY stop playing hard to get if he doesn’t want to lose you.
3. He’s sending mixed signals
Sending mixed signals is the biggest feature of an indecisive man. One day he’s totally, crazily in love with you, and the next day he literally wants to break up with you.
Being with such a man is like being in a limbo. You have no idea how to save yourself from his toxic pattern or what to say to him (especially if you really like him).
And sometimes, you’re unaware of the fact that he’s sending you mixed signals because you’re busy looking for excuses that will justify his behaviour towards you. But, deep down in your heart you know you shouldn’t do it.
Because he’s an indecisive man playing a game called “mixed signals” and driving you crazy. Now guess what happens if you continue tolerating such behaviour?
Nothing happens. He continues sending those confusing signals and you continue justifying them. But, guess what will happen if you walk away from such a man?
There’s only one way to deal with confused or indecisive men and that is to walk away from them. They need to realize what they had and what they lost.
When a man realizes that, he will feel like he’s been given an ultimatum and he will have to make a decision!
He’s either with you or not! He either cares about you or he doesn’t. There’s no gray area here and that’s the message you want to send him!
What Happens When You Walk Away From Him
Once you decide to walk away from him, it’s natural that you’ll start wondering about all the possible outcomes. I mean, it’s what every human being would do.
Doing things on impulse means not thinking in advance about the consequences of our actions, so it’s always good to ask yourself what exactly will change once you perform a certain action.
In this particular case, when you decide to walk away from a man, you can expect lots of things to happen.
Certainly, the man will enter a state of confusion and he will literally be shocked by your decision to walk away from him.
After that comes the most important part and that is the final outcome. This happens in stages as he opens his eyes and starts realizing what he lost.
Now, it’s important to mention that this is the most common outcome if he’s meant to be with you!
When it comes to true love, soulmates often face obstacles whose purpose is to strengthen your relationship and bring you closer together.
In that case, walking away is just a part of the challenges that are meant to connect two souls.
Here are some of the most common outcomes that occur when you decide to walk away:
1. He starts chasing you back
Yup! As already mentioned, men LIVE for the chase! For that reason, I like to compare them with cats.
By observing my own cat, I’ve noticed that the only time she’s interested in chasing a certain toy is when that thing is running away or hiding.
And when I deliberately leave that toy next to the cat, she instantly loses interest.
Why? Because there’s no chase. And that’s exactly how men function in REAL LIFE as well. I accentuated real life because all the romances depicted on the TV and promoted by the media are just an illusion.
For example, there’s a girl texting a guy regularly and showering him with affection, he reciprocates and they end up living happily ever after. Real life is not that simple.
I can confirm from my personal experiences that attracting men is all about the chase. So, once you walk away from a man, you give him the opportunity to chase you back. That’s the most powerful lesson the male mind during no contact learns every single time.
Men don’t like it when things are given to them on a plate. They want to earn it, they want to fight for it, and they want to WIN it!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that we women are a toy that needs to be won, but that’s just how their brain functions. So, the sooner you accept it, the better.
2. He realizes your independence
When they finally win a woman, many men start seeing her as theirs and only theirs. They become convinced that nothing will ever change that because they worked hard to pursue her and now she belongs to them.
They forget that the same woman they won is still independent (or they choose to forget). They think that no matter how they treat her, she will stay with them.
A high quality woman is not afraid of moving on.
And that’s exactly what every man realizes once a woman walks away from him. They suddenly wake up and realize that you don’t need them to be happy; that you’re perfectly fine on your own.
They see that you won’t tolerate their bad behaviour forever because you have standards. A high quality woman always sticks to her standards, no matter what.
If she notices that a man is not reciprocating and she’s not getting what she wants and needs, she walks away. She doesn’t nag or beg him to change or notice her.
By walking away, she’s sending him a message that he no longer has her because he didn’t know how to appreciate her.
And that is a massive shock for every man! They start feeling like they’re incapable of keeping such strong, independent women and that’s why they start working hard to prove otherwise!

3. He realizes he’s replaceable
One of the biggest reasons why men love the chase is because of the feeling of being irreplaceable. When they chase a woman, they know that they have to compete with other men for her attention.
They have to be the best because only the best gets to be the chosen one. After a period of pursuit, when a man finally wins a woman, he starts to feel like he’s irreplaceable.
He starts feeling like there is no other man like him out there and that he’s the winner. And he enjoys that title until the woman realizes that she’s not being treated the way she deserves.
So, when you walk away, he suddenly realizes that he’s actually replaceable. He gets scared that you’ll meet someone better and stronger than him.
All of a sudden, the urge to compete with the other fish in the sea becomes strong. No one likes to feel replaceable (and especially men) because that’s a huge attack on their ego.
Men want to be and feel like the strongest, the best, and irreplaceable. Walking away from him will teach him that he needs to step up his game and work harder if he wants to win you back.
And that’s the power of walking away from a man!
4. He realizes he’s no longer in control
When a man takes you for granted, plays hard to get, or ignores you, he knows that he has all the control in the relationship (this one is strongly connected with narcissists).
And when you’re in control, you set the rules of the game.
So, he knows that no matter what he does, a woman will obey or turn a blind eye because he knows that she likes him a lot.
Control gives him total freedom to do what he wants and say what he wants, without thinking about the possible consequences because there won’t be any.
Or that’s what he thinks.
When a woman walks away from a man, he realizes that he’s no longer the one in full control. Walking away creates balance in the power between a man and woman.
He realizes that he no longer has the luxury of doing whatever he wants in the relationship.
He knows that in order to make the relationship work, he will have to roll up his sleeves and prove that he’s worthy of being with her.
He’ll realize that he can no longer control everything, but only his own actions and words, and if he wants to get her back, he will have to improve his performance instead sitting on a throne.
5. He realizes he needs you more than you need him
The first thing that popped into my mind when I wrote this was Ed Sheeran’s lyrics for one of his songs: You need me, but I don’t need you!
Indeed, there is something utterly powerful in those few words. As long as you’re showering him with affection, dancing to his tunes, and trying to be the best woman he’s ever been with, he will feel like you NEED him.
He will think the essence of your happiness is making him happy instead of yourself. If you beg for his attention when he’s not even trying to notice you, he will think of you as needy.
And do you know what men do with such women? They take them for granted. Every. Single. Time.
The power of walking away from a man lies in making him realize that he needs you more than you need him.
When he sees that you’re perfectly capable of being on your own without him, he will know that you’ve never been a needy woman (or that you no longer are).
And that’s when he starts feeling confused and he finally realizes that he needs you more than you need him.
6. He sees you as a woman who values her self-worth
He realizes that you’re thinking to yourself: This man doesn‘t deserve me. Your bold move to walk away from him screams the following: self-love, self-esteem, self-respect!
And no man can stay indifferent to this concept. Walking away from a man who is not worthy of being with you means valuing your own self-worth.
He realizes that you’re not the kind of woman who will wait for an eternity for him to text back, and that you’ll no longer make excuses for his bad behaviour and stay with him no matter what.
He starts seeing you as a woman who knows what she wants and deserves. And that woman is the most powerful kind of woman! And now he understands the mistake of losing such a woman.
He immediately starts rewinding your relationship to realize what he did wrong and he starts making a strategy to win you back.
A man who genuinely cares about you will act in the above ways, and if he doesn’t, it means you’re not meant to be and you’re better off without him anyway!
Sometimes walking away from a man means moving on for good and learning valuable lessons that will shape you into the person you’re meant to become – the best version of yourself.
The power of walking away from a man also lies in realizing that you’re not meant to be.
Because if he doesn’t wake up and doesn’t realize what he lost, it means he was never worthy of being with you in the first place and he probably never will be.
Remember: If he doesn’t chase you when you walk away, keep walking.
