Are you scared of commitment?

hands showing love and commitment

Did you know that the number one goal for most young people aged 16–24 is to be in a fulfilling relationship? Contrary to what some people or some news articles might lead you to believe, romantic and intimate relationships are still highly important for most of us. But how do you know if they are the one? How do you know when you’re ready to settle down? What needs to happen in order for you to feel like commitment is for you? And what even is commitment?

Because the great news, especially these days, is that commitment can come in very different shapes, sizes and forms. There really is something for everybody, which I think is utterly terrific and only shines a light even further on how fulfilling the right relationship can be.

We can date exclusively, there’s companionship, civil partnerships, and of course what we commonly associate the ultimate of committed relationships to mean… marriage! Essentially it comes down to you though, and understanding what commitment means to you? Once you figure that out, it serves as a great foundation and starting point for if and when you meet somebody you would like to spend the rest of your life with, or even vaguely want to get into that headspace with.

It never fails to amaze or warm the heart at how important love is to people. What’s clear is that everybody has their own definition on love, what they want, who they want to share their life with, and what a relationship looks like for them. There really is no right way or wrong way, there is only your way, and the Pre-Commitment Plan on offer here at The Relationship Place is designed to help answer a lot of these questions you might have, and so much more.

A lot of people get scared of commitment, but trust me, commitment is actually one of the most fulfilling and strong things we can do, it’s making sure you are doing it for the right reasons and the way you want it.
