Studies show that many men are actually not really afraid of marriage but more likely to not be ready for marriage. This often confuses the man and he might act as if he is afraid, but really he just doesn’t have it in him yet to become a married man. Either way, you are facing a challenge.
It can feel almost impossible to get your man to propose to you. You can also start wondering why he isn’t proposing, for example, is it you or something you are not doing to make him be certain to stay with you? You could go on and on blaming yourself or finding something you are lacking for him to pop the question and this can get really stressful and difficult.
The most common mistake women make is that they put pressure on their man to marry them. This is a dangerous task to do as if a man doesn’t want to do something, he will fight back the pressure and you might hear things you don’t want to hear. Pressure will make your man only act worse than what you expect from him. When he is ready, he will show it.
The thing to do is to just give him time to think about it more and not bring up any commitment concerns or marriage talk. This will take pressure off of him to come to a decision on his own. The best technique is to focus on yourself, make plans on your own, and distance yourself from him. Sooner or later he will realize your sudden change in behavior and he will start to be afraid of losing you. This thought will creep into his mind and he will immediately try anything to keep you closer to him.
