    I don't think it is commitment, but affection sure turns me the other way... It feels so bad and wrong. Hate the feeling i get when someone shows me affection.

    I don't know where this fear came from.

    I am terrified of committing to someone, but at the same time I am terrified of being alone. I know I want to get married in the future and have kids, but I get nauseous thinking about being with one person forever. It's not because I want to be with many guys or something...

    I'm afraid that I'm going to commit to the

    wrong person and be unhappy. I don't want to marry the wrong man. Although I know throughout life he and I will change, I just hope he is still the right one for me and vice versa. Until then I'm just struggling to be with just one person.
