Your girls do their best to give you advice, but you don’t listen. You ignore all the signs that appear clearly and quite frequently. It’s the age-old story of being with a man who won’t make the commitment, but you keep making excuses for him as to why. It could be that “he’s just not that into you,” but here are some other reasons he may not be taking it to the next level.
There’s Someone Else
Self-explanatory. Simple as that. It’s hard for a guy to commit to one woman if he’s got others on his mind.
He’s Got Other Priorities
It’s tough to balance love, family, work, etc. If there are things in his life that demand more attention than you, you may just be ranked at the bottom of his To-Do list.
He’s Got Baggage
His ex-girl cheated on him, his parents are divorced, and a long-running fight with his brother has him holding a grudge and bearing a chip on his shoulder. Unresolved pain from the past can prevent just about anyone from getting “serious.”
He’s Afraid It Won’t Work Out
Committing involves risk. You are essentially taking a plunge, and investing energy and time into the relationship. Some people feel that it’s not worth a try unless it’s 100% certain it will work out. But, because you can never really be sure of those things, a vicious cycle of “What If’s?” is created.
None Of His Friends Have Committed
It seems that there’s a certain amount of respect given to the last single guy in a group of friends. Most want to commit eventually, but don’t want to be the first one to do it.
