Reasons Why She’s Afraid Of Commitment
Commitment is not for everyone. There are those of us who are afraid of committing to something that’s too serious, whether it is through dating or simply finishing the gym membership that we signed up for. Of course, the non-romantic fears we have are another story. But, have you ever thought about why certain people are afraid of commitment?
To Be Afraid Of Commitment Is To Fear Being Hurt In The Long Run
One of the main reasons why some of us are afraid of commitment is that we are afraid of being hurt in the long run. When you’re dating a lovely lady, she has probably encountered so many hurts in the past that she is apprehensive to give everything she’s got into a relationship that she cannot be sure of. Other reasons she may have are:
1. She’s not ready to take on the responsibility yet.
Aside from the fear of getting hurt, your girlfriend might think that she is not ready to make such a serious life decision yet. She’s scared that she might not be able to handle it. There’s a lot to think about when you’re finally committed so it’s possible that she is not willing to be responsible for anyone other than herself.
2. It’s too much pressure.
Just like the first item on this list, your lady might be avoiding commitment because there’s a lot of stress that comes with it. She may think you could fight a lot because of jealousy or mistrust. There’s also the pressure from society, family members and other people. She just doesn’t want to deal with all of these.
3. There’s a lot going on in her career.
You have to admit, when you’re in a committed relationship, there’s a lot that you have to sacrifice or make room for. For example, her time won’t all be to herself. She has to spend time with you. If that isn’t doable right now because her career is growing, then she might not be willing to commit yet.
If you think your girlfriend is afraid of commitment, it doesn’t mean that she doesn’t love you. It just means that you have to help her get over her fear. Show your support be there for her, so she knows that you are here to stay. For more dating tips, read other posts on the blog.
