CG With Swept wings Vs. High AR Flying Wings??

I was making a glider, make this my 3000th one, and i noticed that when i have a flying wing that has a high aspect ratio it is incredibly weird to balance as it is usually behind the COL and the regular swept back wings generally balance at the middle of the Root Chord.

Could someone explain to me why this is, i cant seem to rap my head around it!
