Dealing with a boyfriend afraid of commitment isn't as difficult as it may seem. This is the particular time in your life when they are up bigtime.

This goes for men as well as women. Im afraid of marriage and kids, i always think it could ruin my plans and goals in life.
To put it simply, if you like it, then do it! For some, it leads to them having problems having a serious relationship because they are afraid it will go south at some point and what the consequences of that will be.
