I'm 12 years old, in the 7th grade, and I have Philophobia. It's not funny, I don't see how people could say that. I haven't had any bad past experiences, for me, I just have a random fear (or more precisely, "phobia".) My doctor said I did, a while ago, and I didn't believe her.
A couple months ago, A boy asked me out. He was popular, funny, and all the girls loved him. I was so happy for a second, but then this horrible feeling of fear came over me. I almost passed out, and my heart skipped beats. I felt nauseous, and dizzy, like I was SO SCARED of actually falling in love. I have no idea why I did this, but I said "no" and made up an excuse. Wow, I'm pitiful. I'm probably never gonna fall in love again, thanks to my severe Philophobia.
