What Is Commitment Phobia And How Does It
Affect A Relationship?
Commitment phobia refers to the fear and avoidance people get
when somehow they feel like they have to commit to something,
such as a relationship.
Typically a person suffering from commitment phobia becomes
very critical of the other partner in the
will try to annoy or even hurt the other person, in a way to
damage the relationship even if it’s going perfectly
At times, the sufferers will reject others from the word go, to
prevent any potential relationship development and this way
they can maintain themselves at a safe
Other type of commitment phobics will be affectionate and
flirtatious. These people will appear
to want to be in a relationship until the fear over
powers them and then they push the other person away,
leaving them broken hearted.
Certain commitment phobics truly would like to meet Mr or Miss
Right and they even get married, but will have unrealistic
standard expectations about their partners. They could fall in love if
they see that somebody is not interested in a long-term
is a way they can choose someone freely to release their
pressure and be safe from the long-term
The causes of this phobia are occasionally related to a certain
type of loss or trauma, like a parental separation or
bereavement. Perhaps they had an abusive childhood or they were
not raised properly. This can have consequences when they
approach adult relationships. At times, the main problem with
them may very well be a fear of rejection by others. Therefore,
to avoid this rejection feeling from happening, they will
reject first, propose distance between themselves and others so
that they can feel safe.
