Professional Matchmaker Presents: The Dos And Don’ts Of Getting Him To Commit

Relationships are a two-way street that requires the utmost devotion between two people. While some relationships are specifically entered into for the purpose of having fun, others involve more serious emotions, The desire to settle down and make a lifetime commitment. For many women, commitment is something that is hard to get from men with whom they wish to share the rest of their life.

Although frustrating, it is also not without a solution. Listed below are a number of solid tips on how to get him to commit, without jeopardizing your present relationship.

Be Open about What You Want

A lot of women are looking to seal the deal with their men, yet they are unwilling to communicate exactly how they feel. In order to get your man to even consider the idea of settling down, it is imperative that you make your wishes clear when the time is right. There always comes a time in every relationship when each party need to tell each other what they want out of the partnership.

Regardless of what you think he might say or how he reacts, it is important to let it be known that you want and need commitment from him at some point. This way, he does not feel ambushed when you tell him that you feel its time to take the next step.

How To Get Him To Commit: Repetition is Never Effective

After you both have had “the talk”, it is never wise to repeat yourself, at least not sooner than necessary. Reminding your man about your need of commitment repeatedly is never a wise move as it might put enormous pressure on him. Tackling the subject of settling down once every 6 months is enough, so try not to overdo it or he might just shut down on you completely.

Give Subtle Reminders of Your Best Qualities

Men are fickle by nature; hence, the natural aversion to the idea of settling down or getting married. However, it becomes easier to get a man to commit by reminding him of just how much better his life is with you in it.

Little things like cooking a nice meal or having his friends/family over for a special dinner would definitely get him thinking about the future and how great it would be if you are beside him through all the years ahead.

Allow Him Time to Process

While so many men are afraid of commitment and all the responsibilities/restrictions that come with it, others are more than willing to entertain the possibility. What most men really need is some time to process and think through everything so that they can come up with a sound decision of his own actually this is the `Secret` steer him in the right direction but let him think he`s come up with the answer by himself.

Giving ultimatums is never a good idea, especially if your man already seems on the fence. Letting him warm up to the idea of marriage and lifetime commitment make it easier for both of you in the long run.

Show Some Flexibility

In the same way that some men are adamant and have a non-committal attitude towards romantic relationships, women can also dig their heels about the matter. Showing some flexibility as to the time frame and other relevant factors involving marriage would make him see that you are not desperate or controlling which lady’s is a very good idea.

Tell Him Your Plans

Some men severely lack imagination, which prevents them seeing the bright future they can have with the woman they love. Letting him in on your plans for the future is one of the best ways on how to get him to commit. It might very well be that what you have longed for is exactly what he wants as well.

How To Get Him to commit? Easy.. Make Him Feel He Has a Choice

The feeling of being trapped is one of the scariest things for men, which prompts them to stay as far away from the subject of marriage as possible. Letting him know that he has a choice in the matter is something that you should do if you want him to commit on his own volition. After all, you want a man who genuinely wants you right?

These are merely guidelines on how to get him to commit,since all relationships are different, it is always best to act based on what you know about your man and what you really want to do as far as your relationship.

Stop being pushy

Stop being pushy if he’s not ready for a commitment because the more you push the conversation to him the more he resists. A good way to talk to him about this is watch a movie(romantic comedy) about two people ending up together and on your way home talk to him about your future together.

Getting pregnant on purpose to make him commit

Many girls get pregnant on purpose to get their man to commit to marriage, it may not sound fair but it does happen. This is very dangerous because your man will feel angry, trapped and betrayed. You will appear to him as devious, malicious, and manipulative woman. This desperate action may ruin your relationship for good.

Giving him ultimatum is not a good idea

Be careful when giving your man an ultimatum, it can mess things up. Ultimatum is another word for “threat”. If you throw marriage ultimatums to your boyfriend, then he says “no” and you still decide to stay in a relationship, is not a good idea, because you’ll lose your sincerity and credibility in your relationship.

Basically, you just put yourself in an all-or-nothing situation that normally results to break up. So don’t even think of throwing an ultimatum if you have no intention of losing him.

Matchmaker Presents: Letting Go Of Emotional Baggage Today

Two things are certain a) everyone is carrying some emotional baggage and b) everyone struggles to keep it at bay. What most don’t know is it’s now possible to completely and permanent delete old emotional baggage from the subconscious mind so that all ones time, energy and focus can go into creating a happy, fulfilling and successful life. So how does one do that you ask?

Emotional baggage manifests as negative thinking, negative emotions and self sabotaging behaviours that interfere with self esteem, self confidence, self worth, feelings of adequacy, emotional stability, relationships, career success, personal health, and the full expression of one’s creative authentic self to name a few.

All emotional baggage results from past negative events/experiences such as old rejections, abuse, abandonment, humiliations, failures etc. These events are all recorded and stored within the subconscious mind as negative memories. Such memories serve as the so called “evidence” for why one believes (and feels) themselves to be inadequate, unlovable, defective, needy, weak, fearful, unattractive and so on.

In other words the negative memories are the “foundation” of “all” old emotional baggage!

What you probably don’t know is that memories in the subconscious mind can now be rapidly, easily and permanently erased/deleted from within in much the same way that old unwanted computer files are deleted from the hard drive of your computer.

This erasure requires no drugs, hypnosis, NLP, EFT, or any therapy known on this planet.

So how does it work, you ask?

Well, a decade ago it was realized that negative memories behave much like a “waking dream state” i.e. they are experienced playing themselves out on the screen in the back of the mind in much the same way that dreams you have when asleep float through and captivate your mind at that time.

You are very familiar with how minutes after you awaken from a dream filled sleep the dreams seem to evaporate from consciousness and are next to impossible to recall. Well it turns out that erasing a memory is much like “waking up” from it.

Does that sound strange?

Well, let me use another metaphor. Suppose you went to a stage hypnosis show where you became one of the subjects and happened to be given the suggestion that you would feel and experience yourself as a 5 year old once you left.

If the suggestion never wore off you would continue to think of and experience yourself this way. It’s obvious that as a 5 year old, adult responsibilities would feel totally overwhelming to you. Now, isn’t that how many adults already feel?

Suppose that days later you ran into the hypnotist and he/she reversed the suggestion so that you could permanently wakeup to the experience of your true capable adult self, wouldn’t you feel relieved? Absolutely!

Well, it turns out that negative memories are (and behave) exactly like hypnotic trance like states. The way to wakeup from them is simply to erase them.

A decade ago while researching negative memories a new and powerful coaching algorithm was discovered that allows one to do just this. It is based on helping one uncover the many false beliefs we have about how we think negative memories serve us.

As these memories are systematically deleted the person progressively wakes up to the experience of an empowered, self confident, self assured, self loving, self respecting, discerning, mature, capable, attractive, authentic human being.

What most are amazed by when they experience this is that their true self was always there in the background waiting to be acknowledged and reclaimed.

The Top Five Reasons Men Pull Away

eeks and months ago, you went on a few dates, you spent time together and you talked about everything. There was an attraction. There was an attachment. You were happy. You were in love. Then poof! He was suddenly gone. He stopped calling more often. And, he stopped taking you out because he was busy. Why?

Why he pulls away when everything was going great?

1. You are Too Clingy

Your neediness suffocates him, so he leaves. Give him some space and focus on the other aspects of your life so you would not call him more often and monitor his actions every minute.

2. He is Afraid to Screw It Up

Maybe he has no clue on how to make a relationship work. Or, he is scared to make the wrong move and disappoint you. Whatever his reason is, you are more than what he asked for and that scared him more. That is why he pulls away.

3. He is Afraid of Commitment

Worse, he finds you ready for it while he is not. Whenever he is with you, he feels pressured to pop the question and start a family immediately, so he leaves.

4. He is Overwhelmed

When the relationship is doing great, chances are, he will feel closer to you and that is what freaks him out. It is likely that he is overwhelmed by his feelings and everything good about the relationship.

Men are not used to feeling and expressing strong emotions. When love happens, he panics because he has no clue on how to deal with it. He becomes afraid of the feeling that is why he pulls away.

5. Something is Not Right

For some reasons, as he gets to know you better, he starts to view you as a less part of his future. He might have seen some incompatibilities. He might be looking for a quality that you do not have. Or, the spark is just not there. Whatever it is, take it as you are not meant to be and move on.

Whatever his reason is, the best thing you can do is nothing. Making him stay by helping him face his fears or issues is the initial reaction. But it does not work. In fact, it will just push him farther. What you can do is let him have some space to sort things out. If he really likes you, he would miss you, call you and try to go back to your life.

The trick here is balance – a balance between his personal space and your time together. If you got it, he would think twice about leaving you again.

The Top 4 Signs Of A Committed Relationship

So, you want to know the signs of a committed relationship, huh? A couple who has been dating casually for some time now can be considering whether their relationship should remain at the cool casual level or should their relationship be taken to the next level.

Going for a steady and serious relationship is just a s few steps away from marriage, so if you want really want to know the signs of a serious relationship, here are the top four signs to look for in your relationship with your boyfriend or girlfriend.

1. The most telling of the four signs of a committed relationship is when your partner is eager to meet your family and other relatives, as well as your group of friends. This means that they want to get to know you more, and what better way to get to know you than talking to those who are closest to you. If has little to no hesitation in meeting your parents and other relatives, then there is a big chance that you are now in a committed relationship.

2. Another sign is that you have been together for a long time now. You and your partner have done many activities together and you have seen each other’s quirks. If you have lasted for years and you really know each other, then you are in a committed relationship.

3. The third sign to look for is your attraction with each other. Are you attracted to your partner just because of his looks or are you also attracted to his personality and his interests? Physical attraction is a good start for relationships, but this should not be the sole bond between you and your partner. Go beyond his or her looks and see if you like the person under that beautiful or handsome face. If you are attracted to your partner beyond his or her looks, then you might be in a committed relationship.

4. Being able to overcome obstacles together is another sign of a committed relationship. A relationship is always being tested, so if you managed to get through those valleys, then you are in a committed relationship.

Being in a serious relationship takes a lot of time and effort. Supporting and loving your partner through thick and thin is a wonderful experience. The signs of a committed relationship can vary one couple to another, so just keep your eyes open and see the signs for yourself.

Five Things You Will Need To Do Before He Will Propose

So you and your boyfriend have been together for a long time. In your mind you know it’s time for him to ask you to marry him, but he hasn’t touched the topic with a 10 foot pole. And when you say anything even remotely close about the subject, he pulls away quicker than a toddler’s hand whose touched a hot stove.

Does this story sound familiar? Are you completely lost in figuring out what is going on? Are you desperate to find out how you can get your man to propose, but just can’t find the answers.

Women all over the United States are struggling with this issue. In fact, according to statistics, there are more single women than there are married for the first time in history. I say this so that you can take heart and know that you’re not alone in your struggles with getting your man to propose.

Having said that, I’m sure that gives little comfort if you still don’t get answers that will help you to get him to commit. That’s what I’m going to do now.

Before giving those though, first I want to assure you that you that the fact he hasn’t asked you to marry him yet is not because of you. You are an amazing wonderful person and his refusal to give you a ring stems from something much different than that.

I hope that gives you some comfort and more so… relief.

Moving on though, when it comes to asking for your hand in marriage, while it’s not you personally that is the problem, there are some things that you may be doing that is causing him to avoid “popping the question.” Plus, there are some things you SHOULD be doing to get him down on one knee for you.

In fact, here is a list of 5 common things women do and possibly you’ll have to change in order to get your man to propose.

 

    • AVOID buying into the myths – saying that his avoidance in asking for your hand in marriage is one of those myths. Another myth is that he is a “commitment phobe.” Yet another one is that you’re just not “hot enough.” These common beliefs are simply just not true.

 

    • Don’t buy into tabloid article offerings about how to get him to propose – The biggest thing to remember is that magazines are trying to sell a product. To do that they will sensationalize all the details associated with whatever they’re writing about. Just like weight loss supplements, they’ll promise you can lose 25 pounds of fat in 5 days if it means you’ll buy the product to try it out… even though they know what they’re promising just isn’t true.

 

    • Don’t constantly bring up the topic of matrimony or long term commitment – if he’s not open to the subject or initiates the conversation about it, all your communication associated with it will simply turn him from green, (being all for it) to yellow, or even red, (putting the brakes on cooling off his feelings for you).

 

    • Do start showing you truly care about the real him – your guy is a person. Even a man’s man simply wants someone to know the real him deep down inside without trying to size him up or get something from him.

 

  • Do help him on his journey to find his life’s purpose – deep down inside every man is a desire to find their life’s purpose and accomplish it. You’ll start getting him to notice when he realizes you’re there to help him in that mission. Don’t tell him where to go and how to get there… just encourage and support him along the way.
