Relationship Advice Tips from Dr. Jeanette Raymond, Ph.D.

Are you longing to feel like you have a partner that is a good fit and that you are finally settling down, but wonder why you can’t commit?

Do you find that the person you are attracted to seems inviting and loving, but that you have doubts about whether there is someone out there even more suitable?

Then you are caught in a conflict about what attachment and commitment means to you.

One part of you is in touch with the comfort, the love and attention, the togetherness and the bliss of intimacy.

But another part of you is fearful, stressed and worried that you will have to give up your right to think for yourself and be your own person.

So you end up regretting decisions you make to commit because as soon as you do, it’s as if you have just given yourself a life sentence in jail.

Watch this video that tells how I helped a client understand and come to terms with this very conflict in therapy for single people wanting a relationship.
