Shelly’s guide to overthinking

Hi everyone! My name is Shelly and I think the root of my philophobia comes from overthinking a hell of a lot! Everytime I start to like a guy, since I’ve never been in a relationship, I wonder if he’s the right one?I have a “List” of criteria my future boyfriend should meet, and even though I’m sure it’s gonna be hard to find the perfect guy, I can never be sure if I should just take the chance or not… some say that you may have to get your heart broken a lot of times before you can find someone to make it whole again, (as cheesy as that sounds) , but i’ve heard a lot of stories of people lasting the first time their entire lives, but then I question, although I would be happy… perhaps I would wonder what I missed out on. What could have happened?But…

An obnoxiously long memoir from a philophobic

Prep yourselves for a full backstory and count on this as being as long as a chapter book everyone. I’m bout to tell you basically my life story – Let’s say, just in case anyone I know is on here by chance, so they don’t trace this back to me, my alias is Alex, and my age is 16, and I would like to share my story with you all, though I digress.My name is Alex, I’m 16 years old, and I’ve never been kissed – much like the film, but still looking for the happy ending on the baseball field. My name is Alex, and my entire life I’ve been a hopeless romantic, and the best matchmaker I know, if I do say so myself. My name is Alex, and I can’t use the matchmaking advice I give to my friends because unlike everything else I do in life,…

A problem with no solution

I’m a bisexual girl (I think) and in my society it’s very wrong to be gay and I agree (don’t get offended it’s just my opinion) I know it’s not a choice to be gay or straight but it’s still wrong and u should avoid those situations IN MY OPNINION. But I like this girl but she’s straight and even if she wasn’t i wouldn’t date her because I’m scared that she’d do it just for fun or she won’t love me as much as I love her and I’m the type of person that doesn’t like people easily and I’m very picky with people in general but when I find someone I like, I like them more than I should and get really sensitive and jealous towards them. She’s also a very pretty girl so I’m sure a lot of people would flirt with her and I’d get angry…

Broken in love…?

I really love reading books and watching shows about sweet and sappy love lives. But along the way when something heartbreaking happens, I feel it affect me in a way that tugs at my heart.And a while back, there was this one guy I liked in a class we had together. He was super cool and when my feelings were just blooming for him, I heard he had hooked up with another girl in our class, and that girl was DATING a guy I grew up with.I felt so bad for her boyfriend, who was probably unaware of it at the time. I guess it hurt me too. I began to hesitate at relationship opportunities in front of me because I knew I’d be cheated on, dumped, abandoned- I’d get scared my s/o would stop loving me and break what’s already pretty fragile.

I’m not entirely sure

I think I may be philophobic. I really like the idea of a relationship and I’ve had my fair share of crushes and whatnot, but one time I was confronted by a guy I liked at the time (he kind of but not really liked me too) and he asked “So is something going to happen out of this?” And I immediately got scared and refused to talk to him for weeks.I yearn for a relationship, yet when given the opportunity I run for the hills. Even now I’m avoiding getting feelings for anyone now because I really don’t want to repeat this
