I'm afraid to share my feelings. I clam up rather that let someone know I care, feel attraction, or that I want to know them better.
I feel ashamed or guilty for the way I feel. I think my feelings are inappropriate/ wrong/ sinful/ impure/ bad/ etc.
It would be so humiliating if they let me know I didn't mean anything to them, if I shared how I felt.
I know that sharing strong feelings directly can make others uncomfortable, so I just hope they'll guess without me having to spell it out.
I'm afraid they'll take it the wrong way. Just because I feel like this today, doesn't mean I'll feel the same way forever.
It's not that I'm afraid, I just don't know what to do or say to have an intimate personal relationship.
I find it hard to tell when someone is interested in me, or when I do get an idea I don't know how to react.
I really struggle with going from intimate conversation or 'just friends' to physical intimacy. It just seems awkward most of the time.
I don't know how to start a close relationship with someone without having sex soon after we start dating, but it always seems to end badly.
The first stages are OK, I just don't know how to build a meaningful relationship that lasts.
I can't stop thinking about the past. I get so sad or angry sometimes. I don't see things ever changing.
I think because I was hurt so much in the past I must be a bad person, or that I deserved to be treated like that.
Maybe there's just no justice in the world, but I have to try and understand why what happened, happened.
Sometimes I see the person I'm with is just like a person from my past. That's when the relationship falls apart.
