Why Is There No Interest In Having A Romantic Relationship With Someone Else? Is This An Abnormality?
Hello, I’m Dianne. I find it difficult when having a romantic relationship with someone. That’s why I have never been in a romantic relationship with anyone. Then I tried to find a further explanation of my condition until finally I found an article that discussed aromantic. Based on the information above, it makes someone feel reluctant to establish a romantic relationship with someone. They can be in a relationship but can’t really be emotionally attached. I live it naturally. I did not choose to be aromantic. My question is whether aromantic is a disorder? Then how can I get out of the zone and start becoming normal by having an emotional romantic relationship?
Hello Dianne Floss,
Some people experience the fear of having an intimate and close relationship with someone. The fear is reasonable, if there are certain experiences in the past that are not comfortable with the relationship that has been lived. However, fear can become excessive and cause interference, so-called phobias. A phobia for falling in love is called philophobia. excessive fear of the opposite sex is called androphobia, phobias to believe in partners are called pistanthrophobia, and so on.
Phobias are included in anxiety disorders. This disorder can cause panic, depression, and disruption of daily activities and social functions of patients. Fobian can be specific and also general. Symptoms that can arise include:
Mouth feels dry
Causes of phobias usually include a combination of factors such as events in the past, genetic factors, environmental factors, and changes in brain function. Handling of phobias usually combines medical (drugs) and non-medical (cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure techniques). However, if you have not experienced the criteria above, you may not necessarily be included as a phobia. So that handling is usually returned to your intention to start a new romantic relationship. You can ask for support from close friends or family to be able to learn to build good relationships. If you are still experiencing difficulties you can consult further with a psychiatrist. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
