Philophobia: The fear of falling in love or emotional attachment.[1] The risk is usually when a person has confronted any emotional turmoil relating to love in the past but also can be chronic phobia.[citation needed] This affects the quality of life and pushes a person away from commitment. The worst aspect of fear of being in love and falling in love is that it keeps a person in solitude. It can also evolve out of religious and cultural beliefs that prohibit love.[citation needed]
