Some People Say I’m Cold Hearted and Emotionally Detached. How Can I Correct This?


A lot of my family/friend relationships suffer because often people say I’m cold blooded and emotionally detached. I personally don’t know how to show affection, and often my mom says I can’t appreciate anything. I do. I just don’t react the way people normally would I guess. Relationship wise…

I don’t like hugging either, only my grown kids. You can watch romantic T.V. Shows an see how its done an act. You should think about the effects, before you act or speak. How would you feel if it happen to you or what would be the long term affect. What would be the worst case that you could think of, before you speak. I think you act (speak) before you think, it just come out without thinking of how the person feels. You say it without thinking about their feelings.

You are who your are. Maybe over time if you really want to change, you could. If you really feel that it’s a problem and you want to change it, you can always “fake it til you make it.” You could try acting affectionate even when you don’t feel like it, or observing how other people act and mimic it. You can still find a relationship without being affectionate. I find that being straight forward makes my relationship so much better than all the little dancing around everything people do. Just make sure to be tactful and not mean or belittling. I do want to add that to be able to stand to hug any of my friends has taken me about ten years. It took a while to not get annoyed, but keep telling yourself positive things about it and it will become alright after a while.

You can be classified many different things alllll these Yahoo! Answerers want. But honestly, if you want to show affection, then act. Loving someone isn’t plain ‘feeling’ it. It requires action to back it up. No, you don’t have to hug back if you don’t want to. But let me have you consider this; A parent, while you’re no older than Five Years of Age can say they dislike being around you. That all you are is work. And yet, he or she still feeds you. Still clothes you. Makes sure you are alright when you’re hurt. Relationships aren’t all “I love you” (insert hug here). They are action based.

As the old saying goes…

I myself am emotionally detached and straight forward. My mom thinks I’m cold hearted, as if I’m becoming a horrible person like my dad. But thats just how I am, and thats just how you are. It’s not your fault. Be yourself, and if later on you feel like you want to change, change for yourself and not for others.

Am I Cold Hearted

OK NOT your fault…we are all different.
First since you are UNABLE to show emotion just SAY emotions..”Thank you! I really appreciated what you did for me! You can ACT excited…just don’t over do it…ha!!!
Tell the person..”hey i do not want a one time thing..I like you and want to see you!”
You have to just TELL the person…because you are not able to SHOW EMOTION.
I am sure there are a lot of people like you!

Just try to hug back.

Maybe its true you should ne more appriciative.. and more social..but still dnt listen to wht people say! That should not be your concern! some people dnt know what there talkin abt! but still prove them wrong by doing what i said!
