Philophobia is the fear of love or of becoming emotionally connected with another person. It shares many of the same traits as other specific phobias, particularly those that are social in nature. And it can significantly impact your life if not treated.
I just don't know what my problem is. Just the thought of letting my guard down and letting somebody in makes me sick and overwhelmingly fearful.
Although butterflies in the stomach are often associated with love, for someone with philophobia those butterflies are more like deadly scorpions, as they are petrified of falling in love. Unfortunately many people in this category end up living a life of solitude and fear of commitment. If untreated, philophobia may increase your risk for complications, including:social isolation,depression and anxiety disorders,suicide,and drug or alcohol abuse.
Wow I am enjoying myself and you look beautiful.
Philophobia is also more common in people with past trauma or hurt.The fear is that the pain will repeat and the risk is not worth that chance. If someone was deeply hurt or abandoned as a child, they may be averse to becoming close to someone who may do the same. The fear reaction is to avoid relations, thus avoiding the pain. The more one avoids the source of their fear, the more the fear increases
I love you
Philophobia can be one of the strangest phobias,but is very serious at the same time.A philophobic person can lead an isolated life, and have deep distress within oneself. If any of the above symptoms are present, exceeding over six months time and distrupting regular life, then one needs to take advice from a professional doctor .
It is okay. Your past has you traumatized so you are hesitant to let someone in- in fear of being let down again. I will help you overcome this.
In some cases, a doctor may prescribe antidepressants or antianxiety medications if there are other mental health issues involved. Medications are generally used with combinations of meditations and therapy. Your doctor may also recommend remedies such as exercise, relaxation techniques, and mindfullness strategies.
I am too, and thank you.
Nevertheless, seek psychological help if your fear becomes overwhelming. A doctor or therapist will evaluate your symptoms as well as your medical, psychiatric, and social history. Be mindful that there is hope out there even in situations that feel hopeless. Pain is temporary and just as almost anything, this phobia can be broken.
