He definitly has a commitment problem, choosing Suzy who is realistically not attainable for him for many reasons. Domino who offered her whole self to him if they married. He seems to not want to get emotionally involved on a deep level with anyone. He likes to dabble in adventures, relationships , occupations and causes , but not commit wholeheartedly. That would just be too vivid, too real for him. Hope this makes sense, it's late here.
That makes perfect sense! He certainly experiences things in an intense way but you are right about making committments on a serious level. Perhaps Maestra is the only one that he ever committed to on a serious level. This goes back to the discussion of disassociation maybe?
