I suppose if one has things one is terribly afraid of inside oneself and can manage to identify those things with another person, it makes a sort of sense to avoid that person. Probably not the best solution long-term, but might do in a pinch. Not something I can do, avoiding things that scare me tends to snowball into near total inability to function, I've had to learn to go at stuff like that head on for the most part, probably makes me a good target for projected fears, actually.
