The thought of a breakup might fill you with dread."Timing is at play here, as well as the disposition of your partner," Winter tells Elite Daily.
The type of commitment upon which a long-term relationship is grounded may change as time passes.
Studies show that attachment anxiety is positively related to structural commitment, and attachment avoidance is negatively linked with personal commitment.
According to Winter, if you are afraid of commitment, you might not like being called "girlfriend" or "boyfriend," and you may even balk at the idea of deeming someone a "partner." You will also probably back up your reasons for rejecting said labels with well-thought out arguments that reinforce your worldview."[Commitment-phobes] will say they don't do labels, labels are confining, or what you both have is beyond terminology," says Winter.
"Bottom line: They don't want the responsibility."According to therapist Nicole Richardson, you might be afraid of commitment and still think that the other person is great.
You might want very badly to be with the other person, but your subconscious issues cause you to place distance in the relationship or push the other person away.
