12 Signs He Will Eventually Commit
Are you wondering , What are the signs he will eventually commit? Perhaps you’ve met the One only to see him come on like gangbusters, but then pull back for no apparent reason. So that all of a sudden, everything becomes murky and uncertain in terms of your relationship. Are you a couple or not? Has he met someone else? Why is he running hot and cold? Do you have a future together? Should you have “the talk” about where things stand? And you wonder, are there definite signs that reveal he will eventually commit?
Maybe you tend to be involved with a guy for a few months and then he always falls away mysteriously, leaving you alone. Maybe you have been with a guy for 10 years who brings over the chicken soup when you are sick, is there whenever you need him, yet is completely unavailable for building a lasting relationship or family. Or maybe you are in a long term on-again, off-again relationship where one or the other of you periodically withdraws or sees other people.
Have you ever been involved and in love with one man for months, or even years, only to find that he simply cannot or will not take that next step into living together or marriage? Instead, he gets irritated, distant, angry or simply hits the highway if there is any talk of sharing a future together? Let’s first look at the telling signs that show he probably won’t commit:
Typical Sequence of Signs He Will Eventually (NOT) Commit
1) Meet guy.
2) Guy comes on strong, with loving words, deeds, gifts.
3) You decide he is different, the real deal.
4) Things get even better inside and outside the bedroom.
5) You start planning for a future with him.
6) Guy retreats, acts distant or annoyed.

Yes, I know, it’s a downer, but you might feel better knowing that variations of this story have happened to me and pretty much every woman I know. You are definitely not alone. We have all been there. Yet, there is a definite path to freeing yourself from all these painful patterns, from the guys who turn out to be jerks and need to be cut free.
