I am not philophobic. I got hurt, but I am doing fine. I still don’t want a relationship, but I interact with guys.

Some people misunderstand Philophobia.

This phobia is serious and is considered as a mental disorder, just like other phobias. People who go through this, fear any interaction with the opposite sex. Some even experience panic attacks and anxiety. Some people say that they have Philophobia as a result of a heart break, after being rejected, or after a bad break up. They freely describe themselves as philophobics even if they have no symptoms. It just annoys me to see people who put “PHILOPHOBIC” in their bio, and when you scroll and see their feed, you can see convos of them flirting with A LOT of guys/girls. Is that what a person suffering philophobia do? Really?

I think, ironically, some people use this phobia to ATTRACT people’s attention.

Don’t use Philophobia just to cover up whatever you want to cover up or to describe a feeling of bitterness and a broken heart.

Because Philophobia is NOT a label, it’s a mental illness.
