Dating year still no commitment
If he was really hurt before, if there was a betrayal of trust, then there is a greater likelihood he will not want to be in another committed relationship.
Throughout the book I share my own personal stories and those of others who built up their self-worth from NOTHING and then were able to form committed, lasting love relationships.
Well, I've helped so many people through the commitment process that my new relationship advice book, Sealing the Deal, is devoted to that very topic.
This article is excerpted from Sealing the Deal and will help you move forward when your partner can't/won't COMMIT. Should you have "the talk" about where things stand? Will I ever have a committed, solid and lasting relationship?
So all of a sudden, everything becomes murky and uncertain in terms of your relationship. First, you should know that the average time for a couple to move from dating to a committed relationship, with a future that includes living together or getting married, is from nine months to four years. If you've been with your partner in an exclusive relationship for at least two or so years and he/she shows no signs of wanting to make it permanent by getting married, the first thing you have to do is to decide if you are really committed to having love in your life?
All this varies considerably from couple to couple. Are truly committed to yourself and your dream of a committed, married relationship?
