    I've always been afraid of falling in love,

    even before I had my heart broken the very first time. I guess being the youngest and having your siblings date before you and in front of you would have that effect. I think it's mostly because I saw my older sister cry, I saw my older brother punch a wall until his fist was...

    I do have this issue.

    . I always like I want to fall in love but when the chance that it may happen suddenly hit me and I hold back and run away. I still don't have the courage.
