You could look back and laugh. But in reality no one knows if that will be the case. Love is all about taking chances. There is no way to look forward and know that it will work out. It is concerning that she is scared but after that breakup she may just be reacting to the last situation. She may need time to grow into the relationship. You have to decide if she is worth taking a chance on and how long you will wait. If the price is too high then you may want to back off but considering her history she may be telling you the truth. Many couples grow into love. One partner may be much more comfortable being in the relationship at first then the other. The worst case scenario is that you eventually move on. You won't know what would have been unless you make a commitment to this. I would give myself a time frame. If she has not been able to let go then you move on then. You are saying she is well worth it so give it some time and let her get more comfortable. You will know if you have waited long enough. In the meantime show her security and honesty. This often wins over baggage.
Please press positive feedback so I am compensated
I thank you for the answer and I will give positive feedback.
However I wanted to add something to wrap it up for me. If its more likely than not that she is telling the truth and it is only fear that is something that I know will subside with time and I will wait however long it takes.
My fear is that she is not necessarily outright lying but using fear of committing as a plausible excuse for a more fundamental missing piece because she doesn't want me to go but is probably never going to come around. If that's the case, I believe this is a waste of my time.
Is it reasonable to believe that if there was something more than fear missing would she have ended by now? If so I will be willing to give a longer time frame.
