I think most people who have an issue with this lack passion. It annoys me, because that's all it is - evidence of an impassioned life; evidence of someone who thinks about life; someone who actually gives a shit. Those who are unfazed by passion earn my respect and my interest. Often they, too, are just as passionate, and their passion is what makes them so attractive as people. Those who shy away, look fearful and ignore you because you are "vexatious to the spirit" (ironic, really, because they are the ones who are so vexatious - they don't have any spirit; they're lifeless) - they are not worth my time.
