It’s a scary thought. What if you’ve been putting your eggs into a basket with a hole in the bottom? What if he’s not the settling down type – what should you do?

Don’t worry – I’m here to help.

First off, I want to say that although I know it can be really painful to think he might never settle down with you, I promise you that if that’s actually the case, it’s better to know now than know later.

No matter how long you’ve been with him, you don’t want to be kicking yourself one, three, five years down the line, wishing you had listened to the signs earlier and gotten out before too long.So in this article, I’m going to give you the biggest signs that he’s not ever going to settle down with you.

One or two might be OK… but if he’s giving you more than a few of these signs you should think seriously about listening to them and re-evaluating your future with him, here are the top signs.

1. He Hates Labels And Avoids Them

Guys who are skittish about labels are skittish about commitment. If it was an absolute battle to get him to even call you his girlfriend (or if he’s still refusing to when the situation warrants it), it foreshadows exactly what to expect with him in the future. If a guy is going to settle down with a woman, he’s going to do it because he’s excited to be with her and WANTS to settle down.

2. He Downplays Your Relationship In Public

You can’t be in a true long lasting relationship with a guy who doesn’t really want to be there. So if he’s not excited, it’s harder to make it last. And if he’s downplaying how serious your relationship is when he’s in public or talking to friends, that says he’s not proud of being with you – which on its own feels awful and definitely means he’s not excited about the relationship. A guy who isn’t proud to be with you is a guy who’s not going to settle down for the long haul.
