Philophobia: The Fear Of Love.

Love scares me more than pretty much anything else, including ants and elevators.

I still don't know which terrifies me more: that I'll fall in love...


...or that I never will.


Maybe some day I'll write a true story for this group. For now though, I'll just post this quote. I heard it years ago, but somehow, it's never become less true for me.

Relationships don't work the way they do on television and in the movies: Will they, won't they, and then they finally do and they're happy forever -- gimme a break. Nine out of ten of them end because they weren't right for each other to begin with, and half the ones that get married get divorced, anyway. And I'm telling you right now, through all this stuff, I have not become a cynic, I haven't. Yes, I do happen to believe that love is mainly about pushing chocolate-covered candies and, you know, in some cultures, a chicken. You can call me a sucker, I don't care, 'cause I do...believe in it. Bottom the couples that are truly right for each other wade through the same crap as everybody else, but, the big difference is, they don't let it take 'em down.


I believe in you. I believe in me.

I believe in love.

Like the quote. Also totally sympathise with the fear part because I feel the exact same way (about ants and elevators as well as love!). It's scary stuff but I guess that's all just part of love...

They key is finding the one you a truly meant to be with...then love can be blissful.<br />
