I just cant do "reletionships"

Recommended Posts

I just feel like I am such a douche when it comes to reletionships.


I can be dating the most amazing guy... I will love him ot pieces and be totally and utterly happy. I will want to spend as much time as possible with him and all that jazz.


But, as soon as I feel committed, as soon as I feel like I cant hook up with anyone else (even if I dont want anyone else) I start going mad.


I become overly critical and all that common stuff. But I also start hating them. I will flinch if they touch me or try to hold me.


I hate being one of those girls that only like horrible guys... but I am and I dont know why. I only tend to stay attracted to men who treat me badly... but then I also have more dignity than that, so I leave them, while still wanting them.


Its a very odd situation and Im not quite sure what to do about it.](*,)

Survictor: Exactly, but I dont know why I do it or how to stop it!



For Another: Makes sense... but then I dated an amazing guy for 2 years

I still love him a lot, but he kinda hates me... its a weird situation.

I thought I would be with him forever, it still makes me cry if I think about it too much.


But then I hated him when we were going out, too. Not as bad as normal, but when we broke up (the most amicable break up in history, btw) we hadnt slept together for 2 months.

I've had the same problem in all my relationships,even the one i'm in now.


You just have to resist the urge to back out.


Hurting them before they hurt you is a common defence mechanism,distancing yourself emotionally and physically from them in order to not get emotionally invested,sort of emotional insurance.


Often acting like this is also test to see how much they care about you and if you can trust them or not.


You're drawn to guys who treat you poorly because those situations are much more likely to fail,lead to disappointment or mistreatment which is what you feel you deserve for some reason.


It's probably some father/childhood/previous relationship issue i really dont know but agree with foranother stick around and see what happens instead of running scared.

Im not sure I have explained it properly.

I dont hurt them, its not like I go out and cheat on them, and I am not mean to th guys I date... I just get a physical reaction to them touching me and things after a while.


And I do trust them, Im not the girl who gets jelous or nasty, I dont stress if they dont call or anything. I dont even mind if they meet someone else or anything like that, as long as they are honest about it

Well its probably just a fear of closeness that you feel.


When I refer to trust I don't mean in regards to them cheating on you but trust as in wether or not to trust a person with your emotions,to become united with them emotionally.


A loathe of physical closeness is almost like a fear of being vunerable and this could apply to your emotions as well as your physical body.

This makes more sense

Its weird tho, I dont think anyone would ever describe me as being closed off... I dont really fear being hurt, emotionally, that is. I am pretty open with people, even if I dont know them well.


It sucks that there doesnt seem to be one easy answer, that its not just black and white...
