We can accept when people have phobias about germs, spiders, crowded places, and other things that—truly—probably won’t end up affecting them in the long-term. And yet, we are very critical and even skeptical of people who have a phobia about commitment—something that will affect your life possibly forever. Maybe we should give commitment-phobes a bit of a break, turn that judgmental finger around, and ask, “Do the rest of us dive into commitment too easily?” The truth is, the best approach to commitment is probably somewhere in the middle of a phobia and rushing things. And the harsher truth is that many of us err on the side of rushing things, and we aren’t any better than commitment-phobes. Don’t forget that commitment addiction is also a problem. Here are myths about commitment-phobes that aren’t entirely true.

They’re promiscuous

Just because someone doesn’t want to get into a serious relationship with one person doesn’t mean he or she wants to get into tons of casual relationships with tons of people. Some commitment-phobes just like to be alone. Commitment phobia and promiscuity do not go hand in hand.
