I am not sure if I would be able to emotionally attach myself to some one I didn't know because it would be like talking to a stranger, even though she was the parent, but I would make a strong effort to do so.

I don’t think I would be able to emotionally attach myself to someone I never knew but I would feel an empty space for that important person who gave birth to me. If I never knew my mother I think I would go crazy.

I wouldnt be able to attach myslef to someone I never met. It would be to hard to just form a relationship with someone that you have no idea who he/she is all about. Are they nice, mean, lovable? It would be too hard to do a thing like that.

No I would not, everyone who is emotionally attached to their mother is from their mothers spending countless hours making sure we are alright, checking up on us, and making sure all of our needs are satisfied. In his life, he does not get raised by his mother, and barely sees her on a monthly basis, but that was when he was young, and only would be for minutes at a time. He did not know his mother at all, so she was like a complete stranger to Fredrick, and it was one reason why he had no remorse for her when she had died.

I don't think that I would be able to emotionally attach myself to someone I have never met because it simply leaves too many questions unanswered. I have trouble believing in people and things that I can't see. However, I would attempt to have as much of a relationship with my mother as possible.

It takes awhile to become close to another person. With the little time Frederick had, I would not be able to become friends let alone emotionally attached to that person even if they were my parents.

Jesse Gregory said...

I don't think I could because I have never seen that person before. I would need to develop a relationship with someone before I can get emotionally attached to a person even if it was my mother.

No I could not emotionally attach myself to someone because even if that person was related to me I still don't know that person. The only way I could be attach to someone is if I knew that person.

I think you can. It is possible. You can feel anyway about anybody even if you haven't seen them. If you know something about them that you liked, then you can feel something towards them.. Some examples are celebrities. People go crazy over them and also online dating. Many people date each other over the internet and they have never seen each other.

I think that i would try to get to know someone so that they aren't a complete stranger to me

I dont think i could attach myself to someone I havent seen in my life before. I might be able to like that persondown the road, and get to know that person, but not right off the bat. I feel the same way if i never see my mom and then when i grow up she comes back and tries to love, then i wouldnt like that.

After reading this i probably would have had a close relationshio with my mother because you always love your mother no matter how much you see her and plus i would have attached myself because there is always that empty space there wishing you could see her more

Michael Leviski said...

I think that even though he was his mom, he wouldn’t be at all emotionally attached because he never sees her. He has someone on the plantation that sort of takes care of him, so he thinks that she is more of a mom then his real one. So no I don’t think that I could ever emotionally attach myself to someone I don’t know.

It would not be easy to become attached to someone you don't know. You would not know how they are or what they were like. Not being able to see that person would also be a factor on how it makes it difficult to become emotionally attached to a loved one.

michaelrovnan said...

That would be very hard for if I never seen someone I can’t imagine them doing anything that would even help me and I would never even know how they were like so I probably wouldn’t get emotionally attached.

Zack Jewby said...

I do not think that I could really attach myself to somebody that I have never seen before. I find it hard being able to talk to someone I do not know, at least talking to them for a long time. I am very shy when it comes to meeting new people so I find it hard to be able to attach myself to someone that I have never seen before.

Bobblogs said...

I really dont believe i could become emotionally attached to someone i didnt know because it would be a very awkward thing to not be around someone all your life.

jamie said...

I think Frederick did have a close relationship with his mother. I think this because, even though he has only seen her a few times, she walks miles to see him in the night and he thinks about her and feels a connection with her since she is his mother. I do feel a connection with someone I have never seen and that would be my grandfather. The reason I feel a connection with him is because I constantly hear stories of him but I have never met him.

KarlGreen said...

honestly i couldnt because you know that they don't know everything about you and that i couldnt get attach very easily because trust is a very strong relationships that needs to be built over time.

jeff247 said...

Yes, i believe i could be emotionally attached to someone I've never seen before. I think this because if this person was of a significant or emotional importance to me, then I would want to physically be with them.
