Description:
Cold feet is apprehension or doubt strong enough to prevent a planned course of action.

The origin of the term itself has been attributed to American author Stephen Crane, who added the phrase, in 1896, to the second edition of his short novel, A Girl of the Streets.

The behaviour may be modelled as a tension between temptation and self control. If pessimism increases as the point of no return approaches then the individual may balk and refuse to proceed. If they proceed regardless then buyer's remorse is the similar feeling experienced after the event.

Taking a bold decision rather than suffering indecision or cold feet is known as crossing the Rubicon.

Marriage

Some people fear the commitment of marriage and get cold feet before a wedding ceremony.
