Keep My Distance

I keep my distance from people, it's a defense mechanism of sorts.  When I try and make friends with people a lot of times they get very needy all of a sudden and try and smother me -- calling me nonstop, writing me emails.  I always remain civil and polite with everybody.  I am lucky to have a few great friends, but they all live in different cities so I don't get to see them all that much.  Even when women like me (and I am interested) it's tough for me to stop being the lone wolf and approach them.

i wished people would call me and send me emails... :(

I know right? But since everyone is different... not everyone likes the attention. It does get... annoying... after a while.

Some distance is healthy and necessary :) way to go :)

i completely get that and respect it. i get that way to but, the best thing is ask what they need. if that fails do what you do best.

What happened in your life to cause you to be defensive? What event triggered this?
