There is nothing wrong with you, but just understand that emotions are a hard topic in discussions. A relationship can be extremely hard depending on the needs of your partner. I just separated after nine yrs. of marriage because my ex-wife simply needed more of an emotional connection than I could provide.

Otherwise, friends, social gather, having fun, work... there really shouldn't be any issues and just keep doing what you want to do... be who you are.

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personality trait characterized by the inability to identify and describe emotions in the self. Core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relationship.
Alexithymia is prevalent in approximately 10% of the general population and is known to be comorbid with a number of psychiatric conditions. Due the inability to cope with feelings and emotions as described in psychology there are counseling services to establish mental health.
Psychologist have argued that the alexithymia construct is strongly related to the concepts of psychological mindedness and emotional intelligence.
