Fear of Intimacy from trauma
I’m nervous to get physically intimate with my new girlfriend because of my past trauma. I’m a 19 year old male dating a 19 year old female.
She gave me a big hug which made my heart melt and stand on her toes to give me a kiss on the cheek which made me uncomfortable.
I would tell her why I’m not ready yet but I’m not ready to tell her why. I actually never told anyone irl what happened.
I also have trust issues with people. She’s sweet as pie and I really like her. I just don’t want my problems messing up things between us.
