Philophobia was unknown to me before but when I read this article it made me realize that I'm having a mental disorder like this. It's not exactly about having relationships with the opposite sex but i think I feel uncomfortable when I'm with a group of boys.
I also don't feel like being in a place filled with individuals I don't know. If I'm with them I feel troubled and nauseated while sweating a lot. I also don't feel like talking eye to eye; I also often lock myself in my room unless I need to do something outside the room. I even had the notion that its better to be a narcissist than not liking anyone at all. I think that the cause of my behavior is my fear of being rejected, criticized or hurt by others.
I don't want others to state my negative side that I'm fully aware of. I was just hoping anyone could help me .. ?
