Recently I was invited to participate in a virtual love summit entitled “From Dating to Commitment”. So many men and women nowadays seem to be commitment phobic, dating but not forming exclusive relationships. And many are not even dating, just hanging out with friends and sometimes offering these friends their “benefits”. This lack of focus and commitment trickles over into business building and work ethics.
Both men and women seem to want it all and there is so much variety – so many new people to meet, locally and all over the world, and so many different ways to connect online and offline. Technology has created a generation of commitment phobic people who spend more time texting the people who are not present in real time and often ignoring the person standing right next to them. None of this would be a problem if we were all like Dr. Spock, emotionless, robotic humans.
Fortunately or unfortunately, we were born with the brain circuits for feeling and expressing 48+ emotions. And we have real, inborn needs for touch, connection and intimacy. Therefore, even though many of us are now seeking variety and showing a real fear of commitment, our deep longing is to settle in with someone who knows us, who gets us, who likes us, who loves us and who challenges us to return that love in mutually satisfying ways. If you’re a businessman or businesswoman, online marketer, or someone who is currently in a very real, intimate and committed relationship, you may be thinking to yourself: “This doesn’t concern me. I know how to make a commitment. I don’t have a fear of commitment.” And my immediate response is to say “Really!” Commitment is not just about finding a person to love and making a commitment to be monogamous for life with that person. Commitment is a life issue that ALL of us struggle with in different aspects and areas of our lives. For your business-minded folks, try substituting the word “Focus” for commitment and you might begin to understand that just maybe, you too are sometimes commitment phobic.
