What to do when dating a commitment phobe

You are however a likely candidate if you notice a trend or pattern in which you are the constant.

It took me years to notice a pattern in my relationships where I would get more scared the closer I got to someone.

I’d start finding all sorts of reasons why the relationship wouldn’t work.

When the relationship finally ended because of my unreasonable behaviour, I felt relieved and almost happy.

Thus, the feelings he has for you are free to surface in this non-threatening environment. The only difference, this time it’s faster.” You can’t believe the intensity of the love letters I received from my two commitment-phobes when I finally got strong enough to walk away.

The relationship is over, so he is no longer frightened. When that happens, usually the scenario is played out all over again.

If a man doesn’t want to be committed to you, why try to force him? Love is not always as strong a force as gravity to make sure that they have no choice but to plant their feet firmly on the ground next to you.

Irritable – the very person that you loved so much last week becomes intensely irritating, specifically little things like the way they dress – their personal habits that used to seem cute and endearing now drive you crazy.

This can make you feel bad because your partner has no idea of the negativity that is going on in your head and strangely you feel like you don’t want to share it because that might mean the problems could be sorted out and you feel that you need to leave.

The basis of all of this is FEAR – fear of commitment.

Studies show that people who suffer from commitment phobia are deeply influenced by their childhood experiences that have seared their subconscious minds and given birth to such unrealistic fears. However, there are some men who will only take up that responsibility for a woman who they feel deserves that respect. You think you’re heading somewhere, but you aren’t.

These include the death of a parent, a messy divorce, or parental abuse. For a man, a relationship is sort of like a responsibility. He has a responsibility to call you when he’ll be home late. You get sucked into a relationship that does not have a future.

A commitment phobe is someone who struggles to make a commitment particularly in intimate relationships.
