I'm a big fan of words, so when I discovered WTF Fun Fact # 133 I simply had to share it with all Datingish readers: as well as ask the question ... Are you Anuptaphobic? I've many friends who definitely fall into this dating category. They all got their first boyfriend around the age of 12, and their life has thus been defined by a succession of break ups and get togethers that could probably make a pretty good reality TV show. Which got me thinking. Is Anuptaphobia just a slightly quirky way of saying "I can't be alone?"
I've never understood people that date for the sake of having a human pillow at night. Sure, I get the "body contact and it's just nice to be wanted" crap but relationships are work ... and I know I don't want to be doing relationship work when I don't give a flying frog about someone.
Now I see the error of my ways. In wake of being educated by Tumlr's WTF Fun Fact # 133 I now realize that my friends aren't needy, they are simply suffering from a diagnosable condition. All that investment in relationships that are never going to go anywhere is suddenly explainable. Sort of.Are you Anuptaphobic? Do you know one?
