) , enjoys hanging out with my family and doing thoughtful things for them,and introduces me to everyone in his life....friends,coworkers, ect. his last relationship was pretty ugly and he apparently got cheated on.
i dont even bring this commitment issue up when we are talking... he talks about how he really does want to be with me, feels like pushing me away and pulling me closer at the same time, and that i have all the qualities that are imporant to him...that he's just not ready "quite yet". I dont pressure him at all and its not about sex bc we are not even having it!
(i told him i wasnt sleeping with him unless we were officially dating).

His hang-up about saying the word "commitment" is that he doesn't want to get hurt.
I think your friends are right in saying you need to wait. You know where he has been, and that he is taking his time. There is no time limit when it comes to these things, and if one gets put on it, it could be because of desperation (something we dont want to let get hold of us).
If you like this guy, you will wait for as long as it takes..
Sex also changes things a bit though- not sure if you are doing the do yet but if you are unfortunately "we" still have to wait for them to make up their minds.
I think of it this way- I am happy with our relationship thus far besides the title issue. I have met his most family, he has met mine, we operate as a couple in all senses of the word- he takes me out on dates, if I need something he is more than willing to give it to me, he offers to pay for "big ticket" items for me, he takes me around his friends and isn't afraid of PDA (public displays of affection) in front of them, I sleep over his house, I buy him things he needs and food for the house, we work out together, he cooks for me- everything to a relationship is there but the title.
he seems to put pressure on himself bc he doesnt want to lose me.
