Reasons why men get cold feet when they should commit absolutely to women they claim to love.
At some point though, expectations will rise and some form of commitment will be required.
The fear of commitment in relationships is not peculiar to men, but it appears to be more rampant amongst them.
Why is this so? Why do men fear to truly commit to a woman and make things work with just that woman?
Below, we consider some of these reasons:
Some men would rather have it all before thinking about committing to a relationship.
Being successful at their jobs/careers, or attaining a certain level means a lot to them and being overly committed to a relationship might be seen as a hindrance to achieving that goal.
Some men fear that they'd no longer enjoy the freedom to do as they please, to flirt and remain open to more than one option.
If somewhere in his heart he’s still wondering if you’re good for him or not, or if he has been terribly burnt in a previous relationship, then there will be a likely fear that the relationship will fail.
And he might be thinking; what is the point of committing to something that seems doomed to fail before it’s even properly begun?
Men commonly draw back from committing to a relationship because they feel inadequate at meeting the financial responsibility of doing so.
Being married has jokingly been compared to watching one TV station for the rest of your life without the chance to switch channels.
It has also been compared to eating the same type of soup over and over again without variety.
Crazy as it sounds, this idea is one of the reasons why some men would refuse the chance to be exclusive with just one woman - they would rather have the chance to a variety of women and the newness brought by being with each of them.
