Is he afraid to commit? Is he constantly dragging his feet while you yearn to take your relationship to the next level? Take the quiz below, and find out if the one you love has "commitmentphobia."
||You either haven't known each other long enough to form a strong relationship--perhaps you've just met or have only been dating for a few months--or your love is afraid to commit. Why are some men so afraid to commit? They are afraid that they're pledging themselves to the wrong person. They incorrectly have it in their head that there's still a perfect someone out there for them whom they've not yet found.
Unfortunately, things may never change.
If you've been together for many years, and you want to take the relationship to the next level, but your love isn't moving along with you, then you need to make a difficult decision about whether you'll be happier living with or without him. Try to look at the matter objectively, knowing that there are other men out there who are looking for someone to spend their life with.
Whatever decision you make, rest assured that your mate's reluctance to commit isn't your fault: in fact; "commitmentphobia," is a deep, unrelenting, and irrational fear about becoming permanently tied to one person. It doesn't matter who you are or how wonderful you are, your love would still feel the same way.
It looks like you have some serious soul searching to do. Best of luck.
||There are many strong points in your relationship, so there's a lot of possibility. Still, the man in your life may be pulling back, afraid to take the relationship to the next level. If so, it's not your fault. He's simply afraid to commit to one person for the rest of his life. Whether he'll come around remains to be seen, but when it all comes down to it, you really only have two choices. You can either give him the time to sort it all out or you can move on and hope to find happiness with someone else. Only you know which decision is right for you. Good luck. I hope you sort it all out and find a solution that makes you happy.
||You two are dedicated to each other, and maybe you have a few issues. What couple doesn't? But whether he's afraid to commit is questionable. In fact, it looks like it's very possible that you two are moving in the direction of seriousness, if you're not already there, and that you have a very strong and close relationship. If you're wishing; however, that your mate would take the relationship to the next level, it would be best at this point in your life to give it a little more time. Let your mate know what you want and see how things develop. If your mate later proves to drag his feet, and time is slipping by without progress, and you truly want more than he's willing to give, then you have to decide what will make you happy in the long term. Good luck.
