New here- am I philophobic or is it something else?

I should probably be doing my maths homework right now, but I am a 14 y/o female, my friend is also female and she has asked me out. I have never really experienced amorous thoughts towards anyone, and the thought of this relationship terrifies me. I don’t know myself enough to know my own sexuality, partly because I never want to think about it, but I’ not sure if I’m philophobic or just aromantic, asexual and nervous.I have had problems in the past because I put others before me to the extent that I forget to care for myself, or make my voice heard. I am so used to listening to my friends at school that they forget I am there and ignore me. nobody listens to my opinion, so now I’ve been given the option to speak, I don’t know what to say. I don’t know if I’m ready…

I can’t breathe now.

So I have this boyfriend I’m dating now. It’s my third. After like 2 failed relationships this past 6 months I am really exhausted. Now I just assume everyone in my life is gonna leave me soon, which is probably true. Sometimes I wish I could just not fall in love so deeply but then I just uncontrollably fall in love. And then I would cry alone at night just because the thought of him leaving me for someone else. Like even though he treated me well and nice and do everything. So then his friend, A, come along and we become a trio that is so awkward. I just can’t let go the fear that he’s gonna dump me for A and I’ll just literally panic every waking minute. And A is this fuckboy that is flirting with everyone. And my boyfriend would just simply tell him everything about…

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…
