    Attached in what sense? BF?

    Nothing wrong in getting attached, but if you arent interested, then just dont get close and realise its no what you want. Context would be better and then I might be able to explain.

    I think I'm quite good at this because I like my own space and control who comes in or not.

    Context please.

    If you are attracted to someone, not sure you can stop being attracted, that's kinda contradictory. If you are getting attracted, but for what ever reason, you don't want to get attracted, simple avoid any contact until you forget about them

    So not the romantic way or crush sort of way?


    Friendship way is just keep them at a distance and have less to do with them. Don't go out, interact or socialise with them as much. Get busy with other activities and people.

    Thanks. It's just that I hate getting attached to people who'll end up disappointing me anyway. It's like having expectations and being let down in the end.

    Just pick your friends wisely and dont have unrealistic expectations. Good friendships take time to build, so be realistic. Be able to cope if they arent there, but be appreciative if they are.

    Dont be a recluse.

    Btw go for quality over quantity> Some friends may say the right things and laugh at everything you say (especially in the firs term at uni), but they tend to be fairweather. Your real friends are the ones that last and are supportive in difficult times. Dont expect too much of them (but dont shut yourself off) till you know they can be relied upon or you will get disappointed.
