If you fear getting close to people or making relationship decisions that have a long-lasting effect, such as getting married, you might have commitment phobia.
It is common to fear the unknown, but people with commitment phobia can extend this fear to other parts of their life — especially romantic relationships. Commitment phobia can include fear of commitment across several dimensions, not just romantic relationships. It can include fear of deep friendship and a reluctance to commit to a job or career. A comparative study found that Generation X people born between the early s and the early s displayed less workplace commitment and greater likeliness to quit than the Baby Boomer generation those born from s to s.
Baby Boomers, however, experienced greater job satisfaction. Childhood experience can also contribute to commitment avoidance. When parents are overly intrusive or unresponsive, some children grow into adults who fear emotional dependence.
They may reject deeper relationships as a preemptive defense. There is nothing wrong with casual dating or with keeping career prospects open — at least not until it causes you to harm others or sabotage your own well-being. Be on the lookout for the following s of commitment phobia. They may be indications that you are denying yourself meaningful relationships and opportunities. In a partner, they may be a that they cannot give you the kind of relationship you need.
There is no way to test for commitment phobia. People with it may show some of these symptoms or none at all. However, these s should prompt you to think about your choices or relationships. People with commitment phobia often give themselves away subconsciously. They overuse some words and are reluctant to say others.
Getting people with commitment phobia to nail down plans is difficult, and it only gets harder the further out those plans are. Does the thought of committing to a movie next weekend inspire a slight twinge of anxiety? How about a wedding two months from now? They plan for failure but not for success, and their predictions become self-fulfilling. On the other hand, a complete inability to contemplate the future of the relationship — in positive or negative terms — is also a that a person might be wrestling with commitment phobia.
People with secure attachment styles tend to have multiple close friendships. Commitment-phobic individuals sometimes have smaller or more superficial circles of friends.
A romantic history that includes real, long-term relationships is also a good. If they only have experience with short flings or one-night stands, they may not be ready to commit. They may not feel secure in their sense of self and fear the way that a relationship will impact their identity.
A fear of being trapped and missing out on other experiences could also indicate commitment phobia. One of the biggest predictors of commitment and relationship success is the willingness to consider the future of the relationship and even make sacrifices for it.
If you suspect that your partner might have commitment phobia, talk to them about it. If you feel that commitment phobia is getting in the way of your own happiness, practice intimacy and communication. Work on expressing your needs and emotions with friends and family. You can also practice making plans. What Is Commitment Phobia? s of Commitment Phobia There is no way to test for commitment phobia.
