Commitment for some is a scary word and an even scarier concept.

When you are in a committed relationship this is more than just vowing to stay together and to not "cheat" this is a commitment to be there for one another through the good times and the bad. The accept each others differences and to be there to build each other up when times get tough. When you are in this type of relationship your perspective needs to change. Growing up, you probably only had to worry about yourself, think about yourself, or even make your actions based sole and exclusively on your own needs but what changes when you decide to share your life with someone else is that you are no longer the only focus.
Fear of being in a relationship is a terrible thing as it can condemn you to a life of solitude, or an endless succession of failed relationships.
