When totally being honest, a writer can write without holding back. Do you think this makes it harder to love someone. Sometimes intense emotions can be a turn-off.

Excellent point. I think I was referring more to your comments about venting when I asked the question. Sometimes out-of-control is a state of mind when emotions take over. That said, I think more often than not, you are correct about the filter.
I wasn't even entirely sure if I "read" (interpreted) your question correctly. Anyway, I'm not fit for writing when I'm in "an emotional thing". lol
I know what you mean!
I'm so sorry to hear that you are facing a health issue, Eric. Glad you are able to help her through, though.
That's true. Perhaps personality types, as in the 16 personality types or Type A or B, matter more in your opinion?
Some people are most definitely hard to love when their personality is unlikeable! So, do you do not think a writer venting by laying all the thoughts out in articulate form is being difficult? Sometimes hard not to take those things personally?
The question is kind of generalizing, I think it would depend on the writer's reasoning for doing so. Is it an editorial in a newspaper saying something that needs to be said? Is it a blogger who likes to vent or otherwise stir up trouble? Maybe.
