MY COMMITMENT ISSUES


TRIGGER WARNING: LOSERISH, ADULT POST TO DO WITH MONEY AND COMMITMENT.

I am usually quite nervous when I subscribe to a service. I have to do a lot of research on what I am getting for my money: on who has recommended it, and whether it will benefit me long-term. It's quite ironic really, considering I am the sort of person who spontaneously drains my money on huge online orders (damn you, Asos!).

But for some reason, when I know I am paying for something monthly, I get all jumpy and worried that it's not worth my money -- sounds like I have some strange shopping commitment problem, no? And it's not because I cannot afford it, (although, that student loan does go pretty quick) and it’s not like it's impossible to cancel it at any time either! But the idea of having to actively cancel something does play into it, partly.

I guess it’s a bit like a relationship – once you’re past your three-month free trial, things start to get a bit more serious. You have to make the decision as to whether it is worth your time and money to invest in the full package... and sometimes your gal is a little sceptical, perhaps from previous experiences or whatever, y'know what I mean. 

So, here are the subscriptions I have thought about and thought about and thought about until I decided (after the three-month trial) that it was worth the commitment... so yes, it’s a big deal.
