I just recently came across this phobia. I had no idea that there was actually a name for being afraid of being in love. So I looked it up on google and found this website. I think that I might have it.
I am 21 years old and I have never had an actual boyfriend or have even been kissed. I feel so pathetic sometimes that I can get I guy. But then again, I’m not really trying. If I wanted a boyfriend, I would have one, but I don’t. I also have really high standards. I’m one of those girls who loves romantic comedies and loves fairy tales. I know that that’s not real life. But the thought of being with someone scares me. I don’t think that I am capable of falling in love. I am not a very affectionate person, I wish I was but I’m not.
And to top it off, I suffer from Bi-polar disorder. One thing that I read about Bi-polar disorder is that some people who suffer from it have a hard time experiencing love.
So I’m pretty sure that I have philophobia. But that’s okay. I try to convince myself everyday that it’s okay if I stay solo for the rest of my life. I will be okay, I have a great family that I love and I have netflix where I can watch all my favorite tv shows and movies. That’s all I need. 🙂
