Dating Tip: How to get somebody to commit to you

To get someone to commit to you it’s all about emotional investment. When somebody is more emotional invested in someone or something they are a lot more likely to commit to that person or thing. When somebody puts their time, energy and effort into something they form emotional attachments to that person or thing. This is the psychology of commitment. So, to make someone commit to you, you MUST make them emotional invest in you. So set clear boundaries when you first start dating somebody. Let them know that you won’t engage in a physical relationship without commitment from that person. You let them know that you want them to take the time to get to know you and demonstrate to you that they are looking for a long-term relationship, not just a quick fling. Then after a number of dates that person will want to commit to you because they will feel emotional invested in you. Then once they have demonstrated they are committed to you then you can start a physical relationship with them. That’s how you start a healthy long-term relationship the correct way!
