6 reasons why men are scared of commitment

23 October 2014, 17:21 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - There is a reason men run as fast as possible to the opposite direction when they hear about commitment not just in marriage but just in a relationship. It is mostly having to deal with that woman and all her issues, that scares men. And some women do have issues; some may be well founded but others are just woven in thin air or out of their mental psyche and most of the time, the man tries to understand how she came up with it and he ends up being dumbfounded.

Thinking he is cheating

He said he will be home by four but he gets there at five, why is he an hour late. He is cheating. Rarely does it ever cross women’s minds that there can be another cause other than cheating, it is the go-to explanation. Even if he tries to explain. Men are very basic, practical and logical; that straightforward answer may just be that and nothing else.

Going through his phone and texts

His email, Facebook and what he liked or shared especially from another girl. If he is on Instagram, he should not like other women’s photos. These all just make you insecure. A man does not want commitment to someone he has to explain himself to on petty issues. Let him explain why KES 30,000 is missing in the joint account, but why he is liking some photo of some woman you have never met, may end up making you look stupid. It might really just be his cousin.

No space

Commitment spells not having space. Let us be realistic, most women claim that they do not want to follow their men around but their actions just prove otherwise. There is a reason absence makes the heart grow fonder, and you wanting to spend all the time together just makes it irritating to say the least. Sleeping together, waking up together, spending the day together, doing everything together just makes the relationship stifling when it should be enjoyable.


You know the way you can walk away from an argument to someone you do not give a two cents about? You cannot do the same when you have a girlfriend or wife, because you need to work on it or solve your issues. Worst part is when grudges are kept. Men do not like going back to that and that what commitment is about. If you can overlook some things that are not too consequential it makes you better.

Boring Sex

Monotony in sex is just hard for men and that is what scares men most of the time. You may be too perfect in everything but if you cannot keep up with all this women out here and there tactics…. Have an open mind and embrace experimenting.
