    Thanks, Hollyj! Looking to change football team and my job soon so that will hopefully allow me to meet more people...

    Really appreciate the advice, and this part in particular I will hold onto!

    I do consider myself to be quite reflective and have no problem with being self-critical, but just had to get the facts out there in order for others to see why I might behave the way I do. I consider myself to be an open book but have always had a fear of rejection, and now looking into fear of intimacy for the same reasons. I think there's something safe about knowing deep down these relationships will never come to light, I never have to fully give myself because they're taken, and it's comfortable enough just being the close friend even when I fancy them. Lots more introspection to be done!

    Just keep in mind that "fear of rejection" and "fear of intimacy" are categories, not excuses.
