  • Because some people are afraid to be hurt. Some are afraid they will loose their freedom.
  • Because they have been hurt before
  • they dont want to be rejected. and afraid of getting their heart broken.. :( which you cant blaim them for!
  • That may be the case, for there may be other reasons:eg 1) inability to form close relationships because of dysfunctional family background 2) previous bad experiences 3) not wanting to surrender independence, or change lifestyle.
  • Because we are afraid of the great pain that will occur if love doesn't work out.
  • Love is a very dangerous thing. Once you let yourself love you are open to huge amounts of pain. I have always been careful when meeting people, and even more careful with falling in love.
  • Probably some fear the end of that love based upon the pain of past experiences. Many people expect love to last forever, like they read in romance novels or see in the movies. This is certainly desirable but difficult to achieve. Still to get love you must give love and accept the risk and pain that you may also loose love.
  • How can anybody be afraid to fall in love? What can any of us do to NOT fall in love? We have no power over our feelings and emotions.
  • because we're afraid to get hurt. people are afraid to "fall in love" because, what if they're the only one that "fell" and the other person is still "standing"?
  • People "think" too much. Start living in the Now!
  • we are scared of rejection, or being hurt. or afraid that if we fall in love, is it with the right person. being in love also requires being able to open up to that person. they will get to know the real you, and that can be scary alone to some people. they dont like anyone too close to them.
  • Afraid to get hurt or ridiculed. Doesn't always feel comfortable letting someone into our private worlds. Careful of our reputation, afraid what other will say and think.
  • more scared that, that love will inebitubly burn out!
  • I don't know why I'm so afraid of falling in love. I just know that when someone tries to get close I push them away. I could see a lot of your answers and how simple they seem to you but to me falling in love isn't about taking a chance you are literally giving yourself to someone. I'm still a teenager maybe life will change me.
  • I can only answer for myself, and I don't just bleed when a relationship ends . . . I hemorrage . . . abandonment issues from childhood that I can't seem to change.
  • For me it's because I am afraid. I have had a LOT of friends in my past and they have decided that due to my disability that they no longer want to be in my life and they walk out.. I had a fiance die.. I lost a child.. It seems like everytime I get close to someone or fall in love that person somehow leaves my life.. so I push people away .. I want to get close to friends, etc but I am scared of getting hurt again or I am scared they will die or just decide they are tired of my friendship and that will be that... Also I was raised in an abusive home as a child and was in a abusive relationship as an adult..so naturally I am on edge to even think about ever being "loved" or "loving" someone again.
  • are you kidding? for girls, it seem every time they fall in love the guy is scum, and for guys it is because it would be a one way street (because the girl is in love with scum.) there are rare instances where the roles reverse.
  • Don't want to get played, or heartbroken if something goes wrong.
  • I like these answers they hit home. I myself am somewhat afraid to fall in love. And probably for most of the reasons you guys said. -losing independence -getting hurt -and probably the biggest is what my friends think/reputation. Which really i shouldn't worry about due to the fact that i always try my best to like their boyfriends. And i have done my best to keep my reputation a good one seeing as i live in a small town where everyone knows EVERYTHING you do. of course i haven't let myself ever really like anyone. So maybe i'll gain some experience when i get to college in the fall with a fresh batch of new faces. I guess i'll just have to wait and see! Good question and great answers haha.
  • Some of us [myself included] have been seriously burned in the past. We were promised that they would never hurt us and never leave us.. then we trusted them and gave them our all.. only for it to backfire.
  • Because some of us grew up in a house where there wasn't love, never felt love, and don't know how to react when we are loved.
  • For me, I was afraid to fall in love because I'd been hurt way too many times before. Now I'm married, and things are peachy so it all works out :-D
  • Experiences of pain,and shocking realizations that we were right about people all along..*
  • Before you fall in love you will face with dilemma.. It’s hard to make out if it’s the most beautiful thing or its most hurting thing that your about to do. That’s why there is soo much hesitation..
  • i wouldn't be afraid to fall in love, but i would be afraid of getting hurt.
  • I have trust issues and I think most people can relate, whether it's from family issues, or past relationship issues.
  • Because we are afraid of getting hurt or let down.
  • afraid to be broken or fooled maybe?
