Why does it seem like, with people around my age, that having a commited relationship is going out the window. Honestly, why is it so scary? Why is it more appealing to date and sleep around than stay with one person?

because there's no consequences to it in the foreseeable future probably.
The consequences that'll strike from a promiscuous lifestyle if any is at least a good decade away and by the future value theory , people are myopic and something that far away is not gonna be that much of a value to them in the present.
So... they sleep around , go in and out of relationship.
10-20 years later , they settle down.
or maybe not. I'm no sociologist , I'm just a scrub.2THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

For me, I don't fear commitment just because I want to date or sleep around. That's not me. I am a commitmentphobe because I have daddy issues and I have a lot of trust issues. Even with the person that I would like to be with more than anything in the world, I still have commitment issues. I don't know what it is about committing, but it scares the shit out of me. There is one person that I would love nothing more than to be in a committed relationship with, but I still am very uncomfortable with the idea. With him, though, I know we could make it work.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
