Coping with dating anxiety
In fact, we've spent the past five years working tirelessly to fix our dating screw ups.
So here are five dating screw ups all of us anxious people make and how to fix them, too:"Let's have a 'personality drink' before our dates tonight! She didn't even need to text me back because 20 minutes later, she would be banging on the door of my apartment with a wine bottle tucked in the folds of her pale blue coat.
Regardless, every anxious creature I know overshares.
We're so afraid of NOT connecting with a person, we force connections on them by revealing too much too soon.
"I'm gonna die."The experience was so scary, I quickly became anxious all the time that I was going to be this level of anxious again.
And, in turn, this cycle of anxiety resulted in an anxiety disorder. )Anxiety disorders are a total BLAST when you're dating. Taking a break from the dating world to actually deal with my "issues" would mean a sexless life, and there was no way in hell I was going to do that. My best friend Lilly* suffers from anxiety, too, but she's also a big dater.
Sometimes, when you're anxious, you don't immediately feel like the booze has taken the edge off your anxiety, so you underestimate how buzzed you really are.
To attract healthy love and the fulfilling relationship we want and inherently deserve, we must take responsibility for our own energy and heal ourselves from the inside out. We must each plug into our own energy source — our Spirit Within — for infinite and unlimited energy rather than waiting for “Mr. We were both dating with anxiety and had the scars to prove it.We concluded that our failed dating lives were a direct result of living in a perpetual state of ~panic~. Love may come knocking on your door, but you increase the likelihood of meeting that special someone faster when you put yourself out there. Try saying; “Thank you for the love of my life, in my life now.” When we act as if, we attract people and experiences to us that match and support our thoughts, words and actions. When you’re balanced, you’ll attract someone who lives in a similar balanced state — and this is a good thing! Thoughts are powerful, but taking action really puts love into motion. Even before you get a phone call, feel grateful ahead of time that love has entered your life. While dating may be a priority for you right now, be sure to also spend time cultivating all areas of your life (career, family, friends, your physical and emotional health).
