Why Men Run From Commitment

Posted:

Although I don’t consider myself a relationship expert (hell, I don’t even think such a thing exists), I’ve learned a lot about love from my past experiences. Even more importantly than that, I’ve learned a lot about myself and the ignorant mistakes I’ve made during the dating process that has me currently single right now. But I gain the most insight about sex, love, and relationships when I talk to other people and hear their stories. And being a relationship writer and public speaker has granted me the opportunity to hear out many different voices. So with that said, ladies, there is a message that many men have shared with me, that I would like to communicate to you today: One of the main reasons so many of us run from commitment is because the woman we’re dating constantly moves faster than the speed of chemistry.
