| | TOO independent?
First of all, I'm 17 years old. I've had about 4 boyfriends, but none of them have been serious. Why? Mainly becuase a)I'm very picky and b)because I seem to be afraid to commit (to anybody except myself). My longest relationship has been 2 weeks long. I find that I feel much, much better NOT dating anybody. It's like, when I'm in a relationship, I'm in a cage--I feel restrained. I don't like that feeling--I like being single. And if a guy tries to get serious with me, I get scared--and break everything off with him.
I don't have a problem with this, now. I'm only 17 and I shouldn't feel the need to be tied down to anybody (relationships at this age really don't need to be serious). But, I fear that this will be a problem for my future relationships. I don't want to be 23, and unable to commit. I'm not sure if this is an age-related thing or not. I have friends who're talking about marrying (ok, I don't agree with that at all, but)their boyfriends, and I can't even stay in a relationship for a month. What can I do about this? Has anybody had (or does anybody have) this problem?
