Does opening your heart feel more like opening a Pandora’s box? Do you yearn for deep connections, yet find yourself pulling back when things get real? If so, you’re not alone. Many people struggle with varying degrees of “fear of intimacy,” also known as intimacy anxiety disorder. This isn’t just about physical intimacy (though that can be part of it), but the broader inability to form deep connections and be emotionally vulnerable with a partner.

This “Fear of Intimacy Test” isn’t a judgment, but a self-reflection tool, crafted by a relationship counselor with a Masters degree in Psychology. You will explore questions like:

  • Do you find yourself sabotaging relationships before they reach deeper levels?
  • Do fears of rejection or control make you reluctant to share your true feelings?
  • Do you experience anxiety or discomfort when things get emotionally intimate?

Stop constantly thinking, “Why am I afraid of intimacy?” Remember, overcoming intimacy fears (physical or emotional) is a journey, not a destination. This quiz is your starting point to overcome your phobia, offering personalized feedback and resources to help you navigate your path. Whether you crave deeper emotional connection or want to improve your sexual intimacy, self-awareness is key.
