  • my experience with this is: you already know the answer before you ever asked the question. Listen to yourself.

  • I agree with Elena. The reason i did it was because I had trouble with commitment. Just a nougat to chew on

  • It ,might just be that you are scared.. I get the same way because I think i'd rather leave then be left. It's a terrible defense tactic that i have always had. Only you know the REAL reason. It took me a while to realize that I was just scared of forever. Take a minute and really make a pros and cons list and see if you REALLY want to go, or are you just nervous? Good luck!

  • I think sometimes it's an ebb and flow, but if everything is fine and normal and you feel that way it's probably not right. I felt this way often with my last boyfriend, he was a really great guy and I couldn't come up with a logical reason to leave. Eventually we broke up and after a couple weeks I was relieved. I'm with a guy now and I've never thought about leaving him. It feels amazing to be so happy.

  • No. It indicates ambivalence.
