Why Won't He Propose?
Rabbi Shmuley offers five reasons men are afraid to commit and a radical three-step plan of action.
Why Won't He Commit?
- Fear that something better will come along
- Fear of feeling trapped
- Fear of intimacy
- Fear of boredom
- Fear of divorce
- Stop having sex with him.
- Don't move in with him.
- Don't give yourself to a man until he has given himself to you.
"Love and fear are antithetical opposites, such that the more of the former equals the less of the latter. The more you love, the less afraid you become. That's why the posture of love is the hug, the extension of self, and the posture of fear is bringing in your arms to protect your torso. Overcoming the fear of commitment comes through added commitment of love."
