Commitment Phobia - Getting A Man To Commit And Be Happy About It

Bookmark and Share
Commitment phobia in men is a problem women face when trying to take their relationship to the next level. There can be one or several reasons why a man struggles with developing a deeper intimacy with a woman. By identifying the problem and working on a solution men can overcome their commitment phobia and experience love and happiness with a woman.
Men who are afraid of relationships are often unable to verbalize their feelings and explain exactly why they won't commit to a relationship. To a woman this can be frustrating and confusing. The man seems to enjoy her company but does not want to take the relationship to the next level. A woman must know the reasons that men who are afraid of relationships have to better understand what is holding him back.
Past relationship experiences. Men with commitment phobia might have experienced painful and unsatisfying relationships in the past and understandably want to avoid a similar experience. If this is the case the woman can try to assure the man that each relationship is unique and presents the opportunity for a new beginning.
Loss of freedom. Some men who are afraid of relationships fear the loss of personal freedom that comes with a serious committed relationship. If the woman senses that this might be the reason for a man's hesitancy to become more seriously involved, an honest and open conversation in which topics such as mutual respect and boundaries can be discussed and some ground rules agreed upon.
