Pushing people away by making jokes out of insecurity?

Have you ever done that? I made a dumb joke to this new guy I was dating and I told him I am joking but I'm scared he hates me now because he didn't say good morning. We went out and had another date planned and he was talking to me regularly but now I'm scared it's all done.

I did like him but he may have been too old and he reminded me of my ex. I think that's why I was so freaked out. When I feel vulnerable or insecure I am more prone to make teasing jokes to mask it. The guy made me very insecure.

  • I do it all the time. Just tell him you are sorry if you offended him and that you meant nothing by it but it was a defense mechanism. Telling the truth is always the best. I'm sure he will understand.
