George says it was the best decision he ever made. This is a man who is afraid a woman will suddenly lose interest and abandon him. Because of this, he has a hard time having honest straight talk and is very afraid of conflict. When the inevitable disagreements and differences come up in a relationship, he stuffs his feelings and drifts away.

Prefer busy women

But if it’s with a man he trusts, then there’s a greater chance he’ll figure it out. Besides, it becomes difficult to objectively help a man in this way when you’re in love with him. And if you are, you know how much it takes to help someone with these issues. Even if you love someone very much, it takes a lot to be there for someone like this.

Many others simply ignore all the signs of a partner’s fear of commitment and then wonder why their relationships continue to be difficult or fail. Women cannot be afraid of commitment because they typically do not commit until after the relationship begins. This means that women will often agree to terms like monogamy or exclusivity. This is before there is any real understanding between them. Men tend to misinterpret this behavior as fear of commitment rather than confidence in their own standards.

He doesn’t acknowledge the “we”.

This am we spoke and he pretty much said he does not see things going long term. When I asked what changed, he said, you have a whole life in LA and it made me see this might not be possible. I said well, I’m in a place in my life where I can and am getting a place out there and becoming bi-coastal, looking to open a new Business etc. He said he just does not know if he can deal with a relationship, “the fights, drama, etc.”I did not elaborate that we don’t fight or that those are old relationships. I said that I was not going to be comfortable continuing just a friendly sexual relationship but just friends was ok. He said he doesn’t know but he does want to move ahead without expectations and that our situation, me being gone and talking every day required us to have a conversation about a relationship Waze.

A lot of the people who have commitment phobia will say things like, “I’m just having fun right now” or, “I don’t really like to label things.” You might be sitting here thinking, “I have a feeling the guy I’m dating is a commitment-phobe” or, “I think she might have commitment issues.” It doesn’t always have to be linked to a previous romantic relationship, though this is the most common. It can also be linked to feelings of insecurity and inadequacy that stem from a person’s childhood. Should women spend time, energy, and emotions on a man who may never be a part of their future? Keep in mind that he may have a list of ideals—and you may well meet his 50 requirements.

Tip #15: Don’t always listen to your family or your girlfriends

We started dating anyway and I felt like he was becoming more interested in just “going with the flow”. After a few months I asked him how he see’s me. I told him I don’t want to be his homie-lover-friend, and that I’m not looking to be with him that way. He made it clear to me that I was more than that.

I’ve never felt so loved or in love before & he confessed the same. This happened at least 5 times in 1st 4yrs together. Until our 5th yr his sister told him what he was doing wasnt healthy for him or I.

Dating a commitment-phobe can be frustrating and anxiety-provoking. You may feel as if you never know where you stand with this person because you may have a great time together one day, only to have them blow you off for the next week. One of the key signs of a commitment-phobic man is that he won’t dare put a label on the relationship. Common commitment-phobe traits include a tendency to live in the present because they want to enjoy what life offers now rather than thinking about the future.

But don’t keep trying to hold it together for fear it will fall apart. I have a man in my life who truly loves, accepts, understands, cares and respects me in everyway. He provides for me, gives me shoulder to cry on when I need it, lets me have my PMS mood swings without taking it personal, he values and appreciates me. We have our arguments, sarcastic little jokes and silent treatment tiffs occasionally but we always apologize to each other and take responsibility for what we say. I can say that ALL of these 5 points are TRUE about my situation. And I’m FEMALE. He doesn’t know anything real about ME.

You decide that this person is worth the effort and you begin to implement the tools to make things better. If you’ve begun dating someone and your only complaint is that they need some time to themselves from time to time, there is no need to panic. Yes, it is going to be a challenge to construct a solid foundation for a relationship with them, but know that nothing is impossible in love as long as you’re willing to work for it. So before we dive into what to do, let’s take a look at where this feeling stems from. A commitment-phobe will steer clear of making promises for which they will have to assume responsibility.
