A provocative book that explains why men are so afraid of commitment - and what women can do about it.
Why is it so hard for a man to say "I love you"? Why is it so hard for a man to ask a woman to marry him, even if this is exactly what he wants?
Women work hard at relationships but all too often, just when things seem to be going well, men tend to pull away, cheating themselves out of the happiness they really want. It doesn't have to be that way. George Weinberg explains the secret fears that make men run away from relationships and the simple things that women can do to overcome them.
Men want lasting relationships just as much as women do, but they fear that commitment means loss - most of all, the loss of masculinity. Men are far more fearful and insecure than most women imagine, with the same basic needs dictating their behavior: The need to be special.
The need to travel light - to minimize obligations and maximize independence. The need for loyalty. The need to be close emotionally, whether or not they can ask for it. Once women understand these needs, they can help men see that commitment is a strength, and not a weakness.
Why Men Won't Commit will show women how to enter places where her man has not allowed any other woman to go. Read more Read less. Kindle Cloud Reader Read instantly in your browser. Customers who viewed this item also viewed these digital items.

Have been dating for 2 and half years, the other day I playfully pulled all my rings out and asked my SO to put them on me. He broke out in a sweat, became really nervous a classic case of commitmentphobia and begged me to put the rings away.
I became cold as an iceberg as a result. He pleaded and swore love but this time this was a little different. I never got the apologies and or the flowers the next day. And he just seemed annoyed and tired of being pressured in to things. He said, you corner me! To which I replied, well, all the months of unmet needs and neglect, do you realize that in this way YOU also are cornering me??!!
For a background info, my SO is an older very handsome man who just became a widower 2 years ago. I had been waiting for him to get out of his grieving rut but on getting out of the rut, he just seemed to drift away. One could say it is the rebound relationship, but not quite as it has been 2 and half years and we still have GREAT chemistry. We have a very solid dating relationship and are slowly talking and trying to build a life together.
But he refuses to take any steps further or make a formal commitment e. So I do know that we do have potential and I desperately scoured books in order to find the tidbit to fix my relationship. This book explains beautifully what we have always known but could not sistematically put a a finger on it or use it on practical applications. With this SO I learned that if you think about the guy hard enough and sometimes a time out is what you need- you will KNOW what is going on with him.
Women should train their sixth sense enough to KNOW some things. Of course the way they raise girls including the way I was raised, we are thrown in to high stake careers. Not much time to develop empathy nor the nurturing side.
Much to the contrary, a career in corporate America will make sure that any of the traditional feminine traits are wiped out for good. Ladies are guys with a different set of organs that is it. But I digress. I do agree with another reviewer that the part about becoming physical quickly in this book is a bit much- I do endorse the part where you should try as much as you can too extract a commitment from the guy BEFORE jumping in bed- which is largely talked about elsewhere but not in this book.
So buyer beware on doing anything FAST physically. Become genuinely involved and busy-yes. Just playing hard to get and creating artificial hurdles- not a good idea. This book explains that men will resent you for making them suffer and wait so much and eventually they may even want to shag yo. But they will now withhold what you want and they will do that out of resentment for you making them into such fools.
Playing hard to get or throwing unnecessary hurdles will eventually come back to bite you and not in a good way. And then I also was able to extract from him, that the way I treat my cat I treat her like a cat, still very nice, hug her and kiss her every day, she is allowed in my bed and everything - he feels that I don't give my cat enough attention.
And this may be a deal breaker because my SO is set on treating all his animals as a human beings NOT! I do that in my business dealings all the time.
It is called "not burning bridges". Explain to the other party WHY you have become upset, say- I don't appreciate this or I don't appreciate that, but NEVER make comments about his or her character you are just a scoundrel, you were just set out to cheat me, you are a liar and a cheat and so forth.
Being unhappy with a situation means that as long as you fix the situation we are friends. Whereas if you attack the other person's character- well you are never going to be able to take that back and one should never do this.
Both in professional or personal dealings. The book "Too good to leave. Too bad to stay", and the book "The real reasons men Commit" gave me the perspective to evaluate if I should continue or end my relationship I should continue because it is too good to leave. And THIS book now gave me the tools that I needed to diagnose what is wrong in order to repair my relationship. What I love most about this book is how compassionate and realistic the author presents material.
Weinberg doesn't tell the reader what to do or give formulas there's no overly simplistic "if he does this, you do this", or "if he says this, you must say this". Unlike other books in this genre that pigeon-hold men and are overly simplistic, Dr. Weinberg is respectful and insightful no male-bashing here.
I found it refreshing how the author stresses the importance of balancing the needs of both partners throughout, instead of the all too common message in many books of this genre that women must be willing to change their nature, exchange their style of communication, or give up their hopes of an emotional relationship if they don't want to stay single.
If you want to boost your hope that you can have the relationship you want without having to become someone you're not, this is a great book for you!
There's no attitude that men are bad, stupid, or helpless and need to be manipulated, condemned, or excused. Yes, he often points out that certain fears or wants from men may be exaggerated or over the top, but he does so in a way that is non-critical and factual in manner.
This book lives up to its title in that it does not encourage playing games, rather it proposes working to meet each other half way so that both partners are satisfied. It is primarily targeted towards women, but it's about how to help a man feel okay with having his needs met, not coercing him into changing his true nature or "we know what's best for him".
Weinberg offers easy to understand explanations for common behaviors and conflicts, and allows enough room in his examples so that the reader can apply those scenarios to real life situations. My only criticism of this work is the section on sex in which Dr. Weinberg suggests that sex early on in a relationship is more likely to build connection. Earlier on in the book, he gives examples of when a woman may want to cut her losses before she gets too invested.
This seems contradictory as females are commonly known to associate more emotion and create attachment through physical intimacy. Though he says the why, when, and how of sex should be up to the woman, he misses the boat with the "earlier the better" as he fails to address the emotional costs not to mention medical dangers uncommitted sex can have for ladies.

Would you stay with someone you knew you would never commit to you? But still, it can be hard to leave someone you really like, especially if you hold onto that hope that eventually they will commit. Commitment-phobes tend to have a lot of short-term relationships and are serial daters. The challenge with posing this kind of question is you may get an extremely vague response or they might skillfully change the subject. The best thing you can do is to always be sure your needs are being met inside the relationship.

If you have found yourself in the unenviable position of loving a man who is afraid to commit, you may wonder what you can do to make him love you so much he gets over his fear of commitment. Unfortunately there are no potions or spells you can invoke to make your intended love you as much as you love him, certainly not enough to commit a lifetime to you. All you can really do is learn the language of love he speaks, and grow together in your relationship. He may one day love you more than he fears saying, "I do," but the only thing you can really count on is how you respond in the relationship. Get to know the reasons behind his fear of commitment. If his parents divorced, he may still be processing the feelings of abandonment he may have felt, and may be unwilling to commit himself to risk being abandoned in the future. Perhaps he simply does not want to commit himself to any one woman.
