Well some men may be apprehensive of commitment, but not necessarily afraid. Many reason can contribute to this apprehensiveness. Some are not financially ready, some are not mature enough, some may not feel they can handle the responsibility, some may have career goals to attain first, and some are just not ready to settle down with one girl. These are just a FEW reasons, there could be others, but it’s important to not apply the cookie cutter approach to this question, because men may have a number of hidden reasons. Sometimes if you ask, they will come right out and tell you.
