Women too worry about commitment

18 September 2014, 15:16 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - It is not only men who run away from relationships. Women do too, because we happen to love ourselves a lot, but really? What shows that a person does not like commitment? Contrary to popular belief, it is not because they would like to spread their wings to all kinds of pasture, both green and dried -out but it is because once you are in one, you just split everything in half. Your time, your emotion, you cannot even keep those to yourself because the other person has to know what is going on. Your money; birthdays, family gatherings, anniversaries. You just become split into two. How to tell if someone or if you are commitment phobic.

It is all about the chase

 You hate it when people give in because your disinterest settles in then you just become bored and you look for the next new challenge. The worst part is, you like leaving people in a loop, and you eventually stop replying to text or returning calls making the person needier. Thing is, at times the other person will not get the point until later on because your independence is such a potent aphrodisiac that ropes them in; especially if you are a woman , who knows what she wants in her life and goes about  getting it her way. No waiting for the man.

You like your independence

 You like making your own decisions without consulting anyone. The idea of co-sharing is very hazardous to you. The idea that you have to make sacrifices for this other person and accommodate them is not very pleasing. At the end of the day you just flee before the lasso gets too tight while roping you in.

You like unavailable people

Unavailability spells easy for you because you do not have to be afraid of them coming after you. You are just there to wait for it to run its cause and that pleases you very much.

You have never been in a long-term relationship

Applies only to people in mid 20s and above. Why does a teenager need to be in a long-term relationship? Anyway, the longest duration for any relationship you have never been in can be counted in one hand, and in months. You always make up excuses to end the ones you find yourself in, and in-between each course there is a long period where you just do not want to be in one.
