    Hey there! :) Eva here, forum psychologist. Sorry for the long wait everyone! This is going to be my last Psychology thread. This time, it's about what kind of philia or love you have. I got this idea from Haharanger (thank you!). This thread is very similar to my phobia thread, which was hugely popular in the old forums.

    Philias are the
    opposite of phobias. A phobia is an extreme or exaggerated fear of a certain thing, whereas a philia is an abnormal love for a certain thing. Like example,

    Fear of Cats: Ailurophobia
    Love of cats: Ailurophilia

    You don't nee to use all fancy and wacky terms, you can simply state your love and I'll find the philia for it. Keep in mind that there are philias for sone addictions as well!

    Every now and then, I'll collect all the Philias in this thread together and make a list of the, like how I do in my phobia thread. Looking forward to discussions and participation here! :D

    P.S. - Sorry for the bright colours =p

    Why is both fear and love of cats Ailurophobia? Shouldn't the love be Ailurophilia?

    *wince* D: How could anyone like those disgusting, holey-poley, lotus seed pod thingies? Though I think Serquet does...

    Hyelophilia is the love of glasses! Gosh, I think we all are getting confused =p

    Speaking of shiny, Aurophilia I have. I just love glitter and sparkly stuff!

    Yep. All we have to do to find a philia is to search the phobia for the thing, and replace 'phobia' with 'philia'. You'll have to use this method most of the time, as Philias aren't as well-known as phobias. And sometimes we forget about replacing phobia with philia :D

    I really love games. Have loved them from a very young ages, but its also the reason why I can't focus on 1 game for too long because I love them so much I want to play another. I really think I have achieved something by sticking with hoc and LoL as I have =p
