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!
That's true. Perhaps personality types, as in the 16 personality types or Type A or B, matter more in your opinion?
I'm so sorry to hear that you are facing a health issue, Eric. Glad you are able to help her through, though.
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.
