I’m A Woman With Severe Phobia Of French-Kissing – Here’s Why
I like you, I swear! I just really, really don’t want to kiss you.
Phobia : a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.
Most of us have phobias of some sort. For some people, the sight of a freckle-sized spider will send them into a panic. Others opt to climb 15 flights of stairs rather than step foot on an elevator (those people most definitely have a better butt than you).
These are relatively normal fears that for the most part don’t really interfere with everyday life. And sure, while I’d rather not be in the same room as a spider and don’t particularly love heights, there are only two things that I’m truly, irrationally afraid of: One is having ANYTHING covering my face (mainly, my nose). The second? Spit — seeing other people spit, having my own spit land on me, drool on the pillow, ALL OF IT.
