Philophobia (Greek φίλος filos, “beloved, loving" and φόβος phobos, "fear”) is the fear of being in love and falling in love. It is defined as the abnormal, persistent and unwarranted fear of falling in love. The risk is usually when a person has confronted any emotional turmoil relating to love in the past but also can be chronic phobia.
Sometimes a person dwells on bitter memories of past relationships that didn’t go well or that ended badly, whether romantic or familial. Or the sufferer may have an intense fear of rejection and avoids relationships as a way to avoid the embarrassment of being refused by a potential lover. Others may have gone through an acrimonious divorce and be convinced that falling in love again will only lead to another painful divorce or breakup.
This. I got no desire to be in love again. EVER. (though it may already be happening, against my will!)
The person who’s truly right for you is probably cleverly disguised as the one you work with every day. Or the one who you’ve casually known in your circle of friends for five years. Who has seen you at your best and at your worst. And is still there, a big believer in your immense potential. And is probably an amazing kisser if you’d just give them a chance. That’s the person it’s going to be genuinely easy with over the long haul. So the next time you’re looking for the one, don’t look up on some stage or pedestal for some shining realization of your fantasies. Turn around and look behind you. At the person you might have overlooked. The person who is quietly everything you need them to be and more.
When someone feels they are being treated shabbily, or something bad happens to them - they like to say “That’s alright, Karma will get them.”
But here’s the thing.
If you do believe in Karma then you deserve what is happening to you, because that person treating you like shit or that car that got stolen was bad energy you already put out in the universe.
So, really, instead of saying ‘Karma will get them.” should those that believe in that concept be asking “Man, what shitty thing did I do to deserve this?”
Circular, you guys, remember that.
Or you could be like me and know that in this big, wonderful universe there is no rhyme or reason - good guys get beaten up and evil people get rich, and it doesn’t mean anything about their nature - it’s simply the unconnected random events that make up your very short timeline.
Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded ultra-progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a journalist. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a generally optimistic attitude towards humanity in general.
Your attitudes towards economics appear neither committedly capitalist nor socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a liberal.
To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a considerate pragmatist with many strong convictions.
