Yup yup, that's me! I figure it's cause I've been solo all my life. Like when I so get asked out or I am dating someone I do or say certainthing's to pushthem away cause of past relationships with other's. Which is not good I know, trust issues/abandonment issues mostly. Example I'm interested in someone right now, but I won't say or do anything about it out of fear it will go wrong.. plus he is a friend kinda, but I have a date with another guy Sunday who I'm not interested in anymore, I know I need to give it a try anyway. Both cases will go how they usually do sour! I'm a very optimistic person, but pessimistic/cynical when it comes to this stuff.
i dont fear it, i worry that she won't because girls have too much pride where they won't or care to, because things come easy to them, but guys can be the same way too, and if only we all end up with the right person in the first place.
Yes. It's usually caused by bad experiences, either in a relationship of your own or growing up around bad relationships. You see them like that over the years and even when you try to be rational about things, you've still been conditioned to see a committed relationship as bad of a thing as the kinds you grew up seeing.
I think I do, and I think that it's because I fear failure.. If you commit to someone at the wrong time or for the wrong reasons, not knowing what they are truly like or how you truly bond, what situations may arise.. Etc I know that I am afraid to commit in case I end up hurting the other person
Of course people can have a fear of commitment. I know I did for a very long time. You see some people have been so hurt in the past they are scared to committ to someone as they don't want to be hurt again. Another reason is some people just enjoy not having a leash on them and like knowing they only need to think of themselves.
Yes. Mostly caused by fear of another person breaking their heart. Because they've probably experienced really bad heartbreak. But there's also vice versa where a guy will jump into a new relationship because he fears being alone.
Fear of commitment is a psychological defense mechanism against fear of abandonment
lots of people fear commitment because they are scared of getting hurt or getting in too deep and not knowing how to back out. Some people are too immature for true commitment and some just prefer to wait
