People dating are often tired of trying to form a relationship with the right person. They want to be able to come home to the same person each night, and they may be eager to start a family. They try to push their current partner into making a commitment to a long term relationship. This can be seen as a problem by the other person, and they may begin to wonder why there is such a rush to make a commitment. It tends to have the opposite effect on an intelligent person.
Commitment in a relationship is a serious step, and it should be treated that way. People who are too eager to make or receive a relationship commitment often have issues that need to be solved. Rather than pushing for a commitment, they need to understand why they are driven in this direction. They will not find a good partner until they resolve their own issues first.
