I admit i had to 'google' this, wanting to know more about the 'condition'. It seems emotional unavailability affects more men than women, which is no surprise to me as i always believed men have far more problems committing to a relationship than women have ever done.

That said i hate labels being put on people, especially if they simply do not want to commit to anyone or anything at any point.

I think i understand why any form of contact, like a peck or a kiss however friendly or innocent, would try to be avoided, as it may give an impression of something more meaningful.

However, not to be taken personally.

Yes there I go again - important for people, usually men, to understand boundaries in relationships/ friendships and to respect anyone's right to not want physical contact of the sort usually reserved for intimate partners.

If you don't want further posts saying so, just don't reply further.

Too easy.
