When you’re dating a man, there are phrases that will scare him off if he’s not serious about your relationship. Not every man is ready and willing to make a commitment. Some just want to have a fun, lighthearted fling. If your man isn’t in it for the long run, here are some phrases that will scare him.
1. Meet My Family
Meeting your parents is a big deal. It shows that your relationship is getting serious, and that he’s someone you want around for a while. It’s one of the phrases that will scare him off if he’s not serious about your relationship, because it is a step toward commitment. If he loves you, he’ll be eager to meet the people who raised you. If he keeps putting off meeting them, then the pace that you're moving at scares him.
2. Let’s Take Pictures
When you’re dating a guy, you’ll want to snap photos of your cuteness. You need pictures of you kissing, holding hands, and making goofy faces into the camera. If he’s not serious about you, he won’t be eager for a photo shoot. He doesn’t want photographic proof that you’re a couple, because it’ll scare away the other girls he’s interested in. Of course, some men are just camera shy.
3. Saw You with Her
If you accuse him of flirting with other girls when he’s not serious about you, he’s going to think of you as demanding. He doesn’t want someone to tell him how to live his life. If he wants to be with you, then he’ll stay away from other girls without you asking him to do so. If he continues to flirt with women, then he’s not ready for a commitment. He’s just looking for some fun.
4. Let's Talk Baby Names
Even if you’re not pregnant, the mere mention of baby names can scare off a man. It shows that you eventually want a family. Even if you’re currently not ready for children, it’s suggesting that he’s someone you can picture having a family with. If a man isn’t ready for such a big step, it can terrify him. Try not to talk about your future kids unless you’re sure your relationship is serious.
5. I Miss You
Sometimes you have to be careful voicing your emotions. If you tell an uninterested man you miss him after an hour apart, he’s going to think you’re obsessed with him. If he’s not serious about you, then he’ll enjoy your time away from each other. He won’t want to be with you twenty-four hours a day. If he was, that would make your relationship serious, and he doesn’t want that.
6. We Should Spend More Time Together
If you start complaining about the lack of time you spend together, and he does nothing about it, he doesn’t want to see you as much as you want to see him. If he’s always off on his own, it could just mean that he’s independent. It could also mean that he needs free time to try out his other interests. If you haven’t had ‘the talk’ yet, you should do so. If you consider him your boyfriend, he needs to know. You don’t want to be on separate pages.
7. I Love You
If he’s not serious about you, these three little words will make him run away. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you should refrain from telling him. If you really like a guy, he should know it. If he doesn’t feel the same, it’s better for him to leave. The longer you’re together, the more your heart will break.
Everyone moves at a different pace, so every situation is different. Has a guy ever said something too serious too quickly? Did it scare you off?
