I recently received an email from a single Mother that’s been dating a man she likes very much for the past few weeks. She wanted to know why her man always seems so into her but refuses to commit to a relationship with her. I don’t know this guy at all, nor am I familiar with her relationship. So it’s hard to say specifically why he won’t commit. What I do know is there’s always a reason a man doesn’t want a committed relationship with a woman he’s been dating. Most of those reasons are listed below…
It’s too early on in a relationship
Rushing into commitment is reckless. You’re setting yourself up to get hurt if things don’t work out. Men are naturally less interested in long-term relationships than women early on in a relationship. Don’t push him to commit early on. Let the relationship naturally progress. If you keep giving him the compassion he desires and are fun to be around, he’ll eventually have no problem being your long-term boyfriend. Or, even better – husband.
He’s still hung up on his ex
Avoid men that just can’t get over their ex. If he’s constantly talking about her – even negatively – he’s probably still in love. He might even secretly want to get back together with her. You shouldn’t have to listen to him complain about the ex. If he does, tell him to go fly a kite and go back to her. Your relationship with him will never last anyway.
His true intentions are to hookup with you
It’s frustrating knowing there are men that use single Mother’s for sex. They pose as men interested in long-term relationships, only to fool you. Yes, sex is a major part in a relationship, but it shouldn’t be the only thing he’s looking for. If it is, you’ll end up getting hurt. Besides, he probably has 3 other women he’s doing the same thing to. Don’t let him get down your pants early on in a relationship. Make him earn his way down there. A man that can’t respect a woman’s desire to wait for sex isn’t a man worth dating.
You’re wrong about his feelings towards you
Maybe he thinks you’re cute and sexy so he sticks around. Every guy enjoys being with a good looking gal. But that doesn’t mean he feels strongly about you on an emotional level. Start paying attention to his body language and the way he converses with you. You might just be a woman he’s physically attracted to but thinks of as nothing more than a friend. Women often fall for a guy and don’t realize he’s not really into dating her. Our emotions work in a funny way. A way that is indescribable. Sometimes you’re not thinking with your head because you’re thinking with your heart instead.
