Dating fear intimacy
Love is not only hard to find, but strange as it may seem, it can be even more difficult to accept and tolerate.Most of us say that we want to find a loving partner, but many of us have deep-seated fears of intimacy that make it difficult to be in a close relationship.The problem is that the positive way a lover sees us often conflicts with the negative ways we view ourselves.Sadly, we hold on to our negative self-attitudes and are resistant to being seen differently.We learn not to rely on others as a coping mechanism.We may even begin to rely on fantasy gratification rather actual interactions with other people; unlike people, fantasies cannot hurt us.While these attitudes may be painful or unpleasant, at the same time they are familiar to us, and we are used to them lingering in our subconscious.

One of them could be that they’re scared of getting hurt by their partner, so they do the hurting first.The experience of real love often threatens our self-defenses and raises our anxiety as we become vulnerable and open ourselves up to another person. Falling in love not only brings excitement and fulfillment; it also creates anxiety and fears of rejection and potential loss.For this reason many people shy away from loving relationships. As kids, when we experience rejection and/or emotional pain, we often shut down.
