7 signs he doesn't want to commit
22 April 2016, 16:19
He's pretty much only about sex.
Every date seems to have one end goal - sex. He is not really interested in spending too much time with you if it doesn't involve sex. If he just wants something casual, and you want something more serious, neither of you is getting what you want from the relationship.
He travels a little bit too much.
Maybe his work requires him to travel a lot life or he's always visiting friends and family out of state, but either way .Even if he wanted to - it would be difficult to fit a relationship into the mix.
He avoids anything that could be considered a relationship milestone.
Whether it is visiting you at work or meeting your parents, your guy doesn't want to do anything that will make it look like the relationship is making progress.
He shares as little about himself.
You don't know his close friends, have no clue where he lives/works, and have little or no knowledge about his family, and then he is keeping you at arm’s length purposely. You might think he's built an emotional wall that needs breaking down, but he could really just be afraid of making any solid commitments.
You don't hear from him for days.
He goes from showering you with attention and going on little dates after work, to dead silence for days on end. Then he acts like nothing happens. You notice it happens more often as the relationship appears to become more and more serious.
He laughs off your need to define the relationship.
Even if you think you're getting closer, he thinks you're crazy or imagining things. Or, he may indirectly remind you that he said he is not the relationship type. Either way, it's time to cut things off and be with someone who's beyond happy to have you.
He never brings up his past.
While it's obviously not a great sign if he constantly talks about his past girlfriends, no mention of them is equally as worrisome. Unless you're teenagers, he's most likely had at least a few relationships. If he has, and he doesn't talk about them, he might just not be into a long-term attachment.
