Commitment in relationships is clearly defined as being able to keep pledges and promises. Hearing the word commitment may cause people to feel that it is the end of their freedom to be themselves. Most couples feel that they are going to be controlled too much if they commit themselves to the relationship.
The fear of committing is more commonly felt by men. Some men like to be in relationship for the pleasure of sex. Some stay in a relationship because of companionship. But they still cannot see themselves committing fully to you and to the relationship.
If you have been in a relationship with a man for a long while but you can’t seem to make him commit, perhaps some of these steps may help you.
Here are the steps on how to make a man commit:
Learn to listen. You have to make your partner feel that you are willing to listen to what he has to say. Show him that you can listen without criticizing or giving unsolicited advice. This way he may feel that he may confide in you anytime he needs someone to just listen.
Make your man feel that he can be himself with you. Give your man the chance to show who he really is. This may let him feel comfortable when he is with you. Let your man express how he feels about things.
Make your man feel special. Let your man feel how important he is to you. Show him that you love him and that there is no one else. Shower your man with love and care but be careful not to go overboard. He might feel uncomfortable.
Learn to be yourself. Don’t pretend to be someone you are not. Show your man who you really are. Be honest with how you feel about things.
Learn to give your man space. Avoid being a clingy girlfriend. Make your man feel that he has the freedom to go out. Give him the time to do things on his own. Also, avoid asking too many questions. Your partner might feel that you are interrogating him too much.
Make your man feel secure. Don’t play games with your partner. Women tend to make their men jealous to keep them interested. Men may feel insecure if you do this. Also, you are giving your man the reason to question your loyalty to him. He is unlikely to commit himself to you and the relationship if this happens.
Learn to be a friend. Let your man feel that you are not just his partner, but also a friend. It is important that your relationship is built with friendship. This may be a good foundation. If your man feels that you can also be his friend, he may not hesitate to commit himself to you and the relationship.
There are a lot more ways of making a man commit. These are just some of them. If you are having a hard time making your man commit to you and the relationship, try some of these steps and maybe you can convince him otherwise.
