Why are Men Afraid of Commitment?

Most women in relationships today will tell you that their men are afraid of commitment. Why is that?

Men will refuse to commit due to the following;

You’re not his top priority.

Living a healthy life means being able to perfectly balance its different aspects including love life, work life, and family life among others. If any of these demands more of his attention than his love life, then there’s a good chance he won’t commit to you.

He has another woman in his life.

Ever had more than one man in your life and tried to commit to one of them? If so, then you know how hard it was for you to accomplish that. The same happens if a guy has another woman in his life.

He’s afraid it won’t work out between the two of you.

Committing to one person involves taking a risk and trusting that everything will work out. And since it’s a relationship, one can never be sure of the outcome. Therefore, some guys would rather not commit for fear that things will not work out as they’d hoped.

The only reason he’s with you is sex.

Unfortunately, this happens a lot. Some men will get into a relationship not because they love a woman for who she is, but rather because they’d like to do the dirty deed occasionally. If this doesn’t change somewhere along the way, then hoping he’ll commit will be pointless.

You’re putting too much pressure on him to commit.

Sometimes, bringing up the commitment subject a bit too often will only make him feel annoyed and pressurized. It’s better to loosen the reins a little bit and let him come to a decision on his own. Otherwise, he’ll feel like he’s being forced to do something he doesn’t want to and at the end of the day refuse to commit.

None of his other friends has committed.

Truth is, at the end of the day, every guy wants to commit to a relationship. However, no man wishes to commit before any of his friends do.

He doesn’t love you enough to commit.

Sad as it is to accept, a man may only see you as a person to date and never thought of you as the person they’d like to settle down with.

Unresolved baggage from the past.

This may range from family issues, the relationship that ended badly or an unsuccessful marriage just to name a few.

Any of these reasons can keep a man from committing to a relationship. Whatever the reason, you need to come to terms with it and move on. Better yet, stick around if the two of you can work it out.
