  1. I’m not sure how/if it affected romantic relationships, but it severely impacted me in terms of friendships. I think I learned to not form close bonds because it was only a matter of time before I’d be ripped away from them. And that just made me more isolated. I am developing a friend group now finally in my 40’s but I feel so out of place there. Friends of friends were all there since childhood. I feel like I’m always going to be the new guy, never really fitting in.

  2. I moved 4 times growing up, twice after crazy traumatic experiences. It has created a subconscious anxiety that builds in any relationship I create whether a romantic relationship or platonic friendships. Once I open up about it to them, they seem to understand. Another thing is romantic relationships are tough cause you have a sense of paranoia that doesn’t go away since you believe everything is temporary, still looking for that partner who has a similar experience

  3. Moving and getting my heart crushed played a number on me. I’m afraid to commit, but at the same time worried I’ll never settle down. I mean, I’m not looking to settle down anytime soon but im 26 and time stops for no one and thats always in the back of my mind. Most of the worthwhile gals I’ve met who have potential are in a happy relationship or want to get serious right away, and with the constant moving (I work seasonal and live in a van) I can’t hop into serious without knowing if we’re even compatible first. So as of right now I’m just focusing on me and doing my thing trying to become the best person I can be and not really pursuing relationships, but if something happens organically I’ll probably be for it.
