Partner pulls back when getting close, does not call for months, pushes when kissing. Schizoid?

I have a friend that we are attracted to each other but everytime I try to get closer he pulls back. Sometimes he will not call for months and then say that I know how much he missed me. He forgets places we have been together and sometimes when I go to kiss him he pushes back as if i were going to hurt him. He said he has never been in a relationship that last for a year and he is 58 years old because he has issues. Is he schizoid?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for your query. I understand your concern for your partner. With information available it is not possible to comment on diagnosis. It could be personality disorder or depression or simply interpersonal issues. Hence I would recommend a thorogh psychiatric evaluation to clinch the diagnosis and initiate appropriate management.

Hi there ~

I am sorry you are having a tough time with your partner. You may need to see a relationship counselor as soon as possible to sort out issues. With the information you give me in the brief summary above you probably will not know if the person is schizoid. I recommend that you consult a psychiatrist along with your friend.

I hope this helps. Take care.
