Do You Have Daddy Issues?
No you don’t have daddy issues
You simply have a natural desire for commitment and affection. The term "daddy issues" is sometimes used to dismiss (particularly a woman's) desire for love or sex. They make it appear as if something is wrong when someone isn't acting the way they expect or desire. Don't let someone try to make you lesser by dismissing your needs and desires.
It seems like you have daddy issues
You're afraid of commitment, but you're always looking for intimacy. Your childhood upbringing was likely affected by an absent or abusive caregiver, as well as rejection and teasing from your peers. This led you to believe there was a problem with you. However, this is not the case. You want to be in a relationship, but as soon as it becomes too intimate, you find fault with your partner and walk away. It's possible that you'll never feel good enough with your partner, and that your friends will think you enjoy the drama. There are individuals who will adore you for who you are and ways to get through this.
