I read somewhere that a poor body image can develop into a fear of intimacy.How true can this be.Women are more prone to be affected by this? I wanted to know if anyone really accepts these findings.I do not totally disagree but woman are stronget than man then why woman suffer more.Have you had any such experiences ever. Do let me know,what your thoughts are.Is there anyone who can challenge this finding or everyone agrees. All responses are appreciated

yes im affected by this. I have flat chest and that what makes me insecure, i can't handle criticism in terms of this. I'm afraid my partner wont make love with me since most men prefers big boobs.

Like sweetangel said, I think it depends on the person. It can definitely be true, though. I mean, it does make sense, doesn't it? If you have a poor self image, you're not gonna want others to see you, know what I mean?
