Commitment Phobia!?


Some of us are just SCARED! The reasons for being SCARED vary from fear of loss of identity to fear of responsibility.

QUESTION and ANSWER: Why do I keep choosing men who are commitment phobic?

ANSWER: Very interesting question! There are many and various reasons that women choose men who aren’t going to make a commitment. Reasons include: 1. Simply being misled by a guy who has no intention of ever making a commitment; 2. Subconsciously choosing someone who cannot make a commitment because you (woman) have a latent fear of losing your freedom. YES, women are also commitment phobic both consciously and/or subconsciously!

It’s important to recognize when you or the other person in a relationship is commitment phobic because you either want to remove yourself from the relationship or get counseling or BOTH.

Recognizing your feelings and really looking at your fears and speaking your truths associated with relationship commitments may be one of your life’s greatest experiences and working on your fears one of your greatest accomplishments.
