I didn’t know this phobia since today, i just clicked a random page on wikipedia and the philophobia page showed up. Immediately, that page caught my attention and i ended up here.
I’m in love with a girl. She is from Switzerland and I’m from Italy. I met her in my town 7 years ago, she was in vacation for just two weeks. We had a group of friends with whom we spent beautiful days, but 3 years ago were all separate. She was in a relationship with a guy from this group that cheated a lot of times on her when she wasn’t there. They ended up leaving her alone.
Today, I’m the only one left and i became her best friend. But i love her. I told her about this and she told me that she can’t love anymore.
Now she is in therapy for anxiety and depression, she has a great job and we are still friends. According to other people, we seem to be in a relationship, we have sex, we are jealous of each other, but still she don’t want to tell me “i love you.”
