Ah, welcome to the struggles of single life, my dear single-bee.

It’s not all fun and games, is it? The heartache of coming home to an empty house, the longing for a goodnight text from that special someone… It’s enough to make anyone question why they’re still flying solo. But fear not, my friend, for it seems you may be struggling with philophobia – the fear of emotional attachment. It’s a tough nut to crack, I’ll give you that.

But fear not, for recognizing the problem is the first step to overcoming it.

So chin up, buttercup, and let’s work on opening up that heart of yours to the possibility of love. You deserve it.

  1. Do you suffer from agliophobia?!

You’re probably asking what philophobia is now, right?

Well, it’s not some kind of health condition – it’s a phobia or fear of falling in love.

It occurs mostly when people have been hurt in past relationships and are afraid that it might happen again. They know what they had to go through because of that, and they don’t want to go through the same thing ever again.

The thing is that they aren’t happy because they’re single, but they think it’s for the best. They don’t want to start a relationship with someone because they think they will fall madly in love with them and give them the power to control them and their life. If you are afraid of falling in love, then you’re definitely philophobia. Here’s a little guide on how to deal with it and overcome your fear of falling in love. This is pretty similar to philophobia. Only this phobia is a fear of emotional and physical pain. So, as I already said, they’re afraid of being hurt. And people who have this kind of phobia don’t even want to give others a chance because they don’t want to risk it. They simply think that their heart isn’t able to take and handle another heartbreak. For them, being single is the only way they can protect and save themselves.

2. Commitment phobia

Free Lover Adult photo and picture, well, well, looks like we’ve got ourselves a commitment-phobe in the house. But fear not, my friend, because awareness is the first step to change.

If you find yourself stuck in a loop of one-night stands and dodging second dates like Neo from The Matrix, then it’s time to face the music (or lack thereof). And as for monophobia, well, that’s a real doozy. But hey, once you conquer that, the world is your oyster.   So, grab a glass of liquid courage and take a leap of faith into the land of commitment. You got this!

3. Fear of what can happen makes nothing happen (What If Syndrome)

Please stop with the “what ifs.” What will happen, what God meant for you to happen, will happen, and you can do absolutely nothing about it.

Sometimes you have to take risks in life. It’s always better to take a risk and be hurt than to waste your life struggling with the fear of the unknown

So, there is no point in obsessing about it, right?

4. Fear is also the greatest enemy of intimacy

The reason why you are still single, is you are probably not working on it. It’s just so hard for me to let someone get too close to me. I’m so afraid of that closeness. You try to avoid it as much as you can and, sooner or later, you will end up driving your potential partner off.

Most relationship experts agree that fear of intimacy is the worst barrier to maintaining a healthy relationship. ​

5. Your low self-esteem sabotages you

Hey there, low self-esteem! Yes, you, the one holding back my dear single friend from finding love. It’s time to pack your bags and hit the road because you are so last season.  Boosting that self-confidence and self-awareness is the name of the game, my friend. Once you do, watch out world, here comes a force to be reckoned with! No more doubts, no more second-guessing.

It’s time to shine and show the world what you’re made of. So, grab life by the horns and go find that soulmate – they’ve been waiting for someone as fabulous as you!

6. Uhuum mental health issues are a huge dam too

If you’re struggling with depression or anxiety, it may also be a reason why you can’t build a healthy relationship with someone else. No matter how big those issues are, don’t ever let them be bigger and stronger than you are.

7. You can’t be TOO independent for a relationship

You know it’s okay to be independent and maintain your independence even after getting into a relationship with someone. It’s actually good for the relationship.

But, you shouldn’t think that you’re self-sufficient and that you don’t need anyone else. Because you do, as we all do.

You don’t need anyone stronger or braver than you because you already are all those things. It’s just nice when you have someone to offer you a

8. The emotional baggage needs to be emptied out

One thing’s for sure… You’ll never be ready to move on until you get rid of the emotional baggage you carry from your past relationships. Return to your real life, don’t live in the past anymore.. Your present and your future are important. You need to put a full stop on everything else once and for all. It’s good to be careful, but there is no point in obsessing over things that are out of your control or that you simply can’t change.

9. Maybe past wounds have made you highly defensive?

I have learned from experience that finding love isn’t an easy job. It’s a process that lasts a while, and you’re sure to get hurt somewhere along the way.

However, don’t let it change your opinion on true love. Don’t let it make you create some kind of defense mechanism that “will” keep your heart safe in the future. Because, unfortunately, that’s impossible. Also, be an open book and allow everyone to read you. Open your heart to love.

Don’t be afraid to let someone new in. Yes, there is always that risk that they might hurt you, too, but they may also love you unconditionally and make your life better in every possible way.

10. You’re nitpicky

Listen, being picky is one thing, but being nitpicky is a whole other ball game. It’s like you’re inspecting every little detail under a microscope and expecting everyone to measure up to your impossible standards. Let’s not forget, we’re all human here and nobody’s perfect.

It’s great to have standards, but sometimes you gotta give people a break. So, take a step back and ask yourself if you’re being a tad too nitpicky. It’s all about finding that balance between not settling for less than you deserve while also not expecting someone to be flawless.

Trust me, it’ll make your dating life a whole lot easier your chances of meeting the right one.

11. Or, maybe you’re a narcissist??

Narcissists are one of the worst types of people in or lives and in relationships. Understandably, they can’t form and maintain a relationship with another human being because they only think about themselves all the time. So, suppose you aren’t completely sure but are doubting that you may have some narcissistic traits. In that case, you can check out this article that perfectly describes some narcissistic traits you might not recognize immediately.

Narcissists are self-sufficient. They don’t need others because they think they’re so much better than everyone else.

And they’ll get into a romantic relationship with someone only if it benefits them. That is, only if they can take advantage of that person.
