A recent study conducted by Karolinska Institute in Sweden even revealed that some cases of commitment phobia might be related to genetic factors.
Although the finding is interesting, many still believe that genes contribute only small portion in the increasing trend of the anxiety.
All in the list above are only a few of so many reasons why men are afraid of commitment. But before we go there, let’s see first if there is a way to prevent such relationship from happening in our lives.Easier access to sex Because today women are more willing to give free one night stands, many men no longer feel the urgency to have a permanent sex partner.While it is true that this will not necessarily cause a commitment phobia (fear of commitment), a committed relationship will surely cut off this fun from him. It is understandable if a woman wants to ensure the future of her relationship by asking her man about his willingness to move forward.Trying to help without him asking will instead strengthen his fear and give affirmations to it. Don’t wait until you’re already at the breaking point. Don’t involve yourself in destructive behavior such as texting or calling him 30 times a day to check if he’s okay. He will withdraw himself deeper into his cave, emotionally and physically, until the relationship (you and him) is ready to blow up.
