You are afraid of rejection further down the line. If you control the emotions then you're safe. If you let other people in, you can't control the situation anymore.

You over-analyse everything turtle man,that comes through in almost all your questions and answers.Now that is,in many ways,a smart way to approach life - but does not always help when it comes to matters of the heart..

Letting people get close means you allow them to hurt you. So, it is a way of avoiding -more- pain.

Maybe someone you loved was hurt in that way and you saw it........... maybe?

Another thought, you said your sobriety grows, do you feel you let some people down? Maybe you are afraid to let them down again so you keep them at arms length "just in case"..............I believe you will do well. You seem to be on track for it..............but it's a thought.

hmm... you might be getting closer
