No, there are reasons guy's don't want it, like the drama a lot of women "create", marriage turning into divorce (never good for the guy, and can literally ruin the rest of his life financially - would you take that risk?). I mean, "fears" with GOOD reasons. Plus when it comes to marriage, I personally don't believe it's necessary to "prove" commitment. It doesn't "prove" anything. But also in general, women say it's hard to find a good trustworthy guy, well honestly it's the same back. I think even harder for us? Finding a "good" woman that isn't using us for whatever personal reason or gain. Bottom line, it's takes time to build trust and I thing guys are slower to get there than women generally speaking.10
What Girls & Guys Said
Are there some men afraid of commitment, sure. Then again there are some women who are also afraid of it. It realistically boils down to the individual.
I'll say this much, if I was afraid of commitment, I wouldn't have been married almost 13 years.10
I am not afraid of commitment at all... just ask my bank, they have me for at least 10 more years now14
Fear commitment as in marriage? Nope. I’ve wanted it all my life. However, what I do fear is statistics, divorce horror stories and losing everything.11
Depends on what do you mean by commitment.
For marriage - yeah, that's a huge commitment.
For a long term relationship - not at all. Relationships are cool.10
Men don't have a hive mind. Each are individuals with individual traits. Some men fear commitment. Some men do not.20
Some of them, sure. But when 80% of divorces are filed by women, I don't think it's men collectively who have trouble with commitment.10
No. Quite the opposite, they are always on the lookout and grind. But will either overthink it, or be too suspicious of intentions.10
Honey men under 40ish has a huge problem. Back way back dad left the home. Leaving mom to work 2 jobs just to make it. Mom easily taught Jane things but little Johhnys was left out in the cold. For generations till mow little Johhmy grew up and to no fault to there own do not know how to love a wonan. Today girls, women's you going to have to teach your man how to love.0
Depends on the guy. Some do some don't, as is with women10
No. A lot of men are weary about what a woman would do to them later on, such as divorce, alimony, etc.0
It's not so much a fear of commitment as it is a fear of Falling victim to yet another black widow.0
afraid is the wrong word, “doesn’t think it’s worthwhile” is more appropriate0
Nah. Some people are but that's some people.10
Men that being hurt have fear it's natural20

I doubt that I'll be in a committed relationship again. It's not because I'm scared of commitment, my thought process has always leaned heavily on the logical side. Since emotions are a large part of relationships I can have issues with a large portion of how they work. About the only part of a relationship I fear is once again repeating the mistakes my mother made, getting involved with someone that has serious issues. Logically the best way to ensure I don't repeat that mistake again is to be single and closed off. So that I what I'm doing.
