  • If you have been with someone a long time, and the relationship doesnt move on, and they change the subject when you bring it up

  • If the question is avoided at every turn or if you find yourself not wanting to take the relationship to the next level. For example not wanting to live together or want to get engaged or even married.

  • I think it's when you know without a doubt that you're in love with the person you're with, but you're afraid to take the next step with them because you like the safe feeling of having one foot in the door, and the other outside waiting to run if need be. Hypothetically ask yourself (lol) how you would react if your guy got down on one knee and popped the question right now. I don't think anything could fix it except time and ourselves. If you take that leap of faith and jump outside your comfort zone, you may be pleasantly surprised. Try to identify what it is that is making you scared of committing and face it head on. Don't let it dictate how you spend the rest of your life. This is a good question btw!

  • There is actually a book on how to spot a commitaphobic. Maybe there is a website showing how to spot one as well. Google it
