Will it put girls off dating him?
Most Helpful Girl
If it's out of fear... then yes, and it'll only get worse unless you take that big, risky first step.
If it's because you're not ready... not because of some outside circumstance/influence... but because you genuinely understand your limits and and what you can emotionally handle right now in terms of intimacy and commitment... then no, it's not bad... it takes time to mature and figure out what you need.
Bear in mind though... some things about yourself are best learned through introspection... while others are best learned through experience! :)0
