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.

  • Trauma can make things difficult, that's true... But don't let the trauma of your past take over. If you're not ready for that, it's okay and if she judges you for that then you don't need her. Just be honest with yourself and if you need help dealing with your trauma then get help. There's nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. S*** happens then you wipe. Then you move on and learn from it. Much love your way, good luck friend. 💖
