5 things that keep men away from committing

If you are wondering why your man runs away from commitment, read this.

Commitment-phobes are all around you. It s difficult to find a partner who is as interested in being committed as you. If you have come across guys who never commit or run away from the idea of promising a forever, you also need to understand why they do it. Here are some reasons why men run away from committing:

  • The effort to maintain the relationship: Men mature a little later than women. Commitment at an early age would mean they need to compromise, adjust, give up on few things and put in a lot of work. They don t want to do that. They are happy living in their bachelor pad and leaving their towel on the bed with no one to pester them. The moment you commit, she becomes like your mother. She tells you what is right and wrong, who to hang out with and not, and you just lose all the space. I d rather be in casual relationships. Being committed is so not me , says Kunal.

  • Marriage and kids: Men today are not comfortable with idea of marriage leave alone having kids after that. The idea that if they commit, they will have to get married and then plan a family too, scares them. I don t mind having a companion for life or being in a live-in relationship. But if she expects me to marry, I am not in and hence I never commit to any woman , says Farhan.
  • Previous failed relationship: A lot of men carry baggage from previous relationships. Chances are that they were committed to someone and were deeply hurt or they were about to commit and the person just vanished from their life or didn t reciprocate. It is difficult for such sensitive men to commit again in life. Read: Women not men are commitment-phobic.
  • You're not on his priority list. Maybe he has a lot of other things that are planned and waiting to be executed. Being committed is the last thing on their mind. I am 27 and haven t still achieved what I want in life. Committing to someone is a very big responsibility and I can t let it become a hurdle in my path. I shall think of marriage, long-term relationships or commitment only when I have accomplished all the goals I have in life , says Ritesh.
  • Not completely convinced: If he is not completely into you, he will never be ready to commit. I loved her a lot but there was something that I was missing. I just couldn t feel the connection to commit to her. She wasn t the right fit. And when such a feeling arises, I d like to show that I am not interested in committing , says Varun.
