I have Philophobia

Please share!

I’m 12 years old, in the 7th grade, and I have Philophobia. It’s not funny, I don’t see how people could say that. I haven’t had any bad past experiences, for me, I just have a random fear (or more precisely, “phobia”.) My doctor said I did, a while ago, and I didn’t believe her.

A couple months ago, A boy asked me out. He was popular, funny, and all the girls loved him. I was so happy for a second, but then this horrible feeling of fear came over me. I almost passed out, and my heart skipped beats. I felt nauseous, and dizzy, like I was SO SCARED of actually falling in love. I have no idea why I did this, but I said “no” and made up an excuse. Wow, I’m pitiful. I’m probably never gonna fall in love again, thanks to my severe Philophobia.

    Don’t worry. you’re still very very young. You can work on that. Just try talking to him when you get the chance. Try not to faint or something. Just be yourself, don’t think of anything that might make you sick. Be friendly. 🙂

    You are right Philophobia is NOT a game to play with. Philophobia is a mental and emotional trama that can’t always br explianed. I too have philophobia. But only because this developed because of the fact that my innocense of loving everybody. Even people wad taken from me. In this world if your not careful people will hirt you. That is a known fact. But. It is your choice to be with that person or not.

    My advice for you someone your ae is to wait a while for dating. Your focus should be on school and what you want in life, don’t wait till later to do that. Being single is the brdt thing a person can ever have. Because you are noy forced to do anything you don’t want to do.
