    I was wondering if anyone else has ever experienced this, where people you date are scared off by how completely you're able to give yourself over to them? This day and age what with Law & Order on every evening after 6 or whatnot, people have stopped seeing any innocence in the world around them. They instead choose to see darkness, depravity and self-interest.

    I tend to fall head-over-heels (though it doesn't happen very often) and most of the handful of times that's happened the way that things have progressed from there are very brief and basically end with a guy cutting off communications completely. I'm a very passionate romantic (in the classical sense, not the ooey-gooey, lovey-dovey crap that starts showing up on TV this time of year) and I wonder if that scares guys off?

    Yes! But I personally love that I'm open with my feelings. It intimidates the hell out of some people but it also attracts emotionally healthy people. So I consider it a great filter.

    However, if you're talking about sharing too much too soon, that's a different issue altogether. For example if you're saying "I love you" on the second date, that will be a problem for emotionally healthy people too.

    So maybe some clarification is needed.
