I am new to this site and on-line chatting. Hope this is the right community for this topic. I have been seeing a wonderful woman for the past two years. After an appropriate period of time she wanted a commitment. I became very anxious and frightened. This has happened to me in the past three relationships I have had. We broke up after a my lack of a positive response. We are now seeing each other again and she tells me she is no longer interested in marriage. I do not know what will happen, but a therapist that I engaged to clarify this problem gave me an interesting book titled "He's Scared, She's Scared". I found from reading this book and conversations with the therapist that this is a more common problem than I thought. I am a widower and had an excellent marriage for 20 years so I'm not sure what's happening to me. If anyone else has encountered this problem I would love to discuss your situation, successes, failures or any advice. Thanks.
