I have "commitment issues", which are incompatible with what I want.

I asked for three weeks apart to clear my head, and we made it to two before I wanted him here again... but the panicking is back! [more inside]

Have you (or someone you know well) loved someone but weren't "in love" with them (had a strong, warm, happy relationship but one that wasn't very intense, passionate, etc) and gotten married/been in a long-term partnership? Did it matter that you weren't "in love" exactly? If it led to problems, what were they? [more inside]

Can't Commit to a Long Term Relationship

My problem is that I can't commit long term to romantic relationships. This commitment phobia automatically colors me as a bad person because the right thing to do in this society is to find that one special person and commit to them for the rest of your life. (ideally) [more inside]
