This phobia, the fear of sourness, was probably developed by a lot of people who grew up on late ’90s candy. Warheads and Cry Baby Tears weren’t too extreme in small quantities, but playground challenges led to scaring experiences.
It can be tough out on the dating market, so this, the fear of beautiful women, is understandable. Try to stay optimistic.
The fear of books makes sense. I have quite a few on my shelf taunting me while I watch Netflix. I’m not sure I’m ready to dive back in to reading, though. “The Red Badge of Courage” really soured me on the experience in 7th grade.
The fear of being in love just sound like something people claim to have after the old, “it’s not you, it’s me” excuse. It’s apparently a real thing, though. Maybe being on the wrong end of that excuse leads to the phobia. I’m still putting myself out there, so I’ll keep you guys updated.
I’m not sure what could happen to make a person be afraid of good news. I guess I thought it was good news when I heard they were making a “Last Airbender” movie. Getting ones hopes up is a scary thing.
