"Commitment" is one of those gender-specific terms that gets itself all tangled up by individual definition even when those using the term believe the meaning is clear. When couples use the word "commitment" I pay close attention.
When a woman says she is in a "committed" relationship, for example, my guess would be that she believes the partnership is both honest and intimate, a monogamous coupling that will last a long time--maybe forever. When married folks announce, "we're committed to working it out," the phrase usually means that one or both of them have already contacted divorce lawyers.
what does commitment mean in relationships these days.

Commitment cannot be a single minded decision, with one partner issuing all the rules and conformities, it has to be a mutual agreement of needs and requirements in a future you want to share together, with commitment levels you present to each other open to compromise and discussion.
Pre-conceived ideas or fears about commitment is understandable and is essentially preparing you to understanding the difference between promise and commitment.
People's needs are changing, and we live in a society where our individuality is a big part of our growth process and who we are.
Additionally, casual dating can be an intriguing and exciting option because it enables you to keep the thrill of the chase alive as you’re able to pursue and date multiple people at once—all while staying completely unattached and uncommitted.
Casual dating truly leaves the door open for new people, new possibilities and new experiences without the obligation or burden of being tied down. Casual dating isn’t for everyone, and there are definite reasons why you shouldn’t engage in this kind of informal connection with others.
There is a thick line between verbally committing to something without a real sense of commitment and an authentic sense of commitment.
To whom and how much you want to commit are personal choices depending on your personality, your needs, your emotional maturity, your lifestyle and your thinking process.
