Commitment can be one of the scariest things that people face in their lives. There’s just something about saying to someone that you’ll be only with them from now on that strikes terror in the hearts of a lot of guys and girls. It’s because of this that it’s difficult for many women to know whether or not their boyfriends are fully committed to them. They certainly don’t want to bring up the subject because that can send some guys running for the hills. So, the question becomes: Is he really committed to you? How can you tell whether he is or not?
Looking at the way your guy reacts when you mention things like weddings of friends or relatives will give you a big clue as to how he feels about permanent commitment. If he turns pale and sweaty, you’ve probably got a man who might not want to get married. He also most likely will avoid the subject like the plague. You’ll notice lots of subject changing.
Take a cue from the reactions you get as to whether or not you should talk things through. Have a long, honest heart to heart about where the relationship is going. This may be a difficult thing to do if you’re ready for more commitment and he doesn’t seem to be. But it’s an important step.
Another thing to notice is how he is around children. If he seems like he will do all he can to avoid them, he might not want kids. Babies tend to frighten men that don’t want a commitment because they see babies as the final nail in the coffin of entrapment.
Another thing: some guys won’t move in with you if they think it means more commitment. Moving in with someone means that the relationship is progressing to the next level. If they feel as if you’re going to expect more from them with a live in situation, they’ll probably. They might insist that your relationship is more exciting when you each have your own places to call home.
Those are just the major ways of telling how your guy feels about commitment. On the other hand, if he loves talking about weddings, loves babies, and can’t wait to move in with you, then you’ve got yourself a commitment in the making! Exciting stuff (if that’s what you want)!
