How To Deal With People Who Have Philopobia (fear Of Falling In Love And Being Loved)?
Good evening, sorry to ask. I’m like someone, and someone likes me the other way too. But he told me that he had philophobia (fear of falling in love). So how do I deal with people who suffer from philoppbhia? Do I have to give a safe love to him? Or I just claim to be a friend. .
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Philophobia is a condition in which a person has an extreme fear of love, and is very uncomfortable about being close to someone. This condition causes the sufferer to feel so excessive fear that it feels unreasonable, anxious, palpitating, difficulty breathing, nausea, sweating, and cannot think well even when he imagines falling in love or being close to someone. This condition can arise due to various things, one of the most logical reasoning is that this person has experienced a traumatic event by someone he loved in the past or when he was a child.
In your case, what you need to know is that the person you are referring to is really experiencing this condition, or with the advancement of existing information technology, he likens his feelings to what is on the internet so he diagnoses himself. If what happens is the second, it could be that what he feels is not up to the level of philophobia. He could just still not be able to move on from the bad memories of his past, or still love the person he used to love.
Our advice, try asking him how he found out that he experienced it. Does the word friend, relative, or he feels that what he feels is in accordance with what he had read on the internet or other media, or he has actually been examined by a psychologist and / or psychiatrist. If it has already been examined, then he should undergo therapy in the form of behavioral therapy, drug consumption, hypnotherapy or the like to eliminate the phobia. If that is what he got from other than expert diagnosis, ask him to immediately consult himself either to a psychologist or psychiatrist.
Because after all, unlike snake phobia or phobia of heights, at one point humans have the instinct to have offspring and to build a family he must have feelings very close to someone. If he feels afraid to feel close to someone, then his future will be threatened, regardless of whether he will end up being your partner or someone else's partner. So, hopefully answering your question.
