Knowing if your guy is ready to commit or not is always helpful in figuring out where your relationship is headed. The 8 signs he is not ready to commit that I’ve posted below are some common ones to look for. The simplest way to know is if he comes right out and tells you that he isn’t, but a lot of guys aren’t that straight forward. Not all the signs listed below are for sure, since men tend to handle their feelings in a completely different way than women. However, they do apply to most of the guys I know!
8. He’s secretive
Having little secrets from one another is only natural, but when he abruptly ends his cell phone calls the moment you walk into the room this can cause some concern. I guess a better word for this form of secretive would be ‘sneaky’. A sneaky guy tends to make me wonder what he’s trying to hide. It might be something that he feels ashamed about. It’s hard to know unless he is willing to communicate as to why he’s so secretive all the time.
7. You have no idea who his family is
I dated this guy for close to three years and never got to meet any of his family members. Wait, I take that back. I did meet a brother at the grocery store, but he didn’t introduce us and he only told me it was his brother after we got back home. Weird. Sure, there are some family members that tend to not be in the main loop as much as others, but I think being introduced to at least one parent is a reasonable request.
6. His friends are surprised when you meet them
This might not be that big of a deal, but I think it is when you’ve been dating this guy for 3 years. After this length of time his friends should at least know your name, right? If I am greeted with a shocked expression when my honey introduces me to his closest friends, then I feel like he doesn’t talk about me at all. It only makes sense that if he’s ready to commit that he would be telling his friends all about me.
