Avoiding commitment?

One of our readers just discovered she is dating a commitment-phobe. It is something that took her by surprise. She said she asked all the right questions in the beginning, paying careful attention to what he said. After a couple of months, she realized he had no real desire to take things further.

When you are dating someone new, it is important to find out if you are on the same page. Some people don’t want anything serious or like to keep it casual. Casual isn’t for everybody, though. Folks who avoid commitment usually show it. You don’t meet their friends and definitely not their family. There is no future date planning of anything.

Sometimes it takes a while to realize they are avoiding long term commitment. Have you ever met this type? Are you someone who prefers to keep casually dating with no strings? Do you let them know?
