Our expert says:
Hard to cure a committment phobic, as cure would need them to at least start by committing to therapy ! And begging is not only undignified, and shows too little respect for yourself by yourself, but is the sort of neediness likely to frighten a committment phobic even further away.
It sounds as though your friend is confused and has many issues he needs to sort out with the help of a counsellor, before he could settle into a lasting relationship.
Some people are indeed very happy on their own and with no close or enduring relationship.
You may have to give him space, even if he might not come back to you - if he doesn't come back, he was never yours anyway.
The significant problems are on his side, and he needs to sort them out for himself, as well as possibly for your sake. But all the begging and SMS will push him further away.
