My partner and I have been dating for almost a year. When I ask him about having

children, he says he’s scared of being a father. I understand we are both young adults and shouldn’t rush things, but I love him. Please help me convince him I want to be with him forever.

It is not wise to push a partner into making life commitments. Respect his wishes, and instead of pushing for what you want, find out why he is scared of being a father. Then work on those fears and find a way to work together towards planning for a family. If you both agree to have a baby, consider your readiness to support the child financially and emotionally.
