Signs of fearing intimacy
You hate sitting still
Are you keeping yourself busy, avoiding facing up to your weaknesses or loneliness? Using excuses for not having time for people. Fearful they might be trying to get too close.
You’re known as being very positive
Positive people tend to be well liked. But it’s often a way of avoiding deeper connections. Humans tending to bond over weakness – sadness, struggles or problems – rather than strength.
People turning to you for help
Others may be asking for your help but rarely asking you about you. Being too helpful prevents others prying too deeply. You might be known as a people pleaser.
An ‘ideal’ partner
Intimacy phobics are often creating a list of desirable qualities they want in a partner. So no one can live up to their expectations. Are you seeking out unavailable people? And in this way justifying your situation to yourself.
