It’s no secret that relationships can be tricky. But what happens when it seems like the relationships isn’t going anywhere? Are you wondering how to know he’ll never commit? Don’t be blinded by emotion. Instead, keep an eye out for these three red flags that suggest if commitment is the goal, it’s time to move on.
He Flat Out Says He Doesn’t Want to Commit
It’s hard to believe but sometimes, when a guy says something, it’s exactly what he means. He isn’t secretly saying that he plans to stick around. He isn’t going to change his mind in the future. If he says he doesn’t want to commit, there’s a good chance he isn’t going to commit. While this can be tough to hear, it’s better to face the facts and make a decision to walk away before investing any more time and effort into the relationship.
Seclusion From His Family and Friends
Most couples don’t introduce someone to their parents on the first day. However, if the relationships has been going on for awhile but there hasn’t been a meeting with his close friends or family members, chances are that commitment is not in the future. Once introduced, the family and friends are going to ask about her, invite her to things, and even get to know her better. If he doesn’t want this happening, he isn’t looking at a real commitment. Instead, the relationship is more a convenience.
He’s Guarded When It Comes to Information About Himself
Part of a relationships is getting to know someone. But it’s about more than just finding out where he works and what he likes to do in his free time. Getting to know him means learning about who he really is, what his values are, and what he wants out of life. If things like this have not been discussed in a relationship that has been ongoing for an extended amount of time, he isn’t truly invested in it. He doesn’t plan on revealing more information than necessary to keep the other person around.
These concepts aren’t always easy to swallow. But in reality, why waste time with a person that doesn’t have similar expectations of a relationship? Instead of trying to make things better or trying to change him, it’s time to walk away.
