There is this anxiety and nervousness about going out on a date, thinking about dating, or while out on your date.
When you are nervous it can hurt your chances of getting a date as you don't want to try and can make you look very uncomfortable while you are out on your date.
Find out what you can do about your dating anxiety.
If you are scared of dating, you need to start going out just to get used to the process.
This doesn't mean going out on a date, but start doing things alone with friends of the opposite sex.
This will get you used to being alone like this and talking one on one with someone else in similar settings as those of a date.
This will help you get out and start going through the motions without the pressures of impressing someone or getting a romantic connection.
Stop worrying so much about yourself.
No one is perfect.
No one is going to come off this way.
Very few people are absolutely gorgeous or extremely outgoing.
Accept yourself for you who are.
It will be easier for someone else to accept and love you if you do this with yourself first.
Don't go out on the date with the hope of falling in love.
This is too much pressure which is adding to your anxiety.
Just enjoy it for what it is.
The connection is going to happen or it will not.
Don't make it complicated by having too high of expectations at first.
Don't try to figure out a way of dating so safely that you could never be hurt.
Some people get the anxiety because they want to avoid any pain.
This complicates the process.
Most people will get hurt at one time or another.
It's part of the process of finding love.
Admit it to your date that you are nervous.
Let your date know that you are a little nervous about the situation.
This can be an ice breaker as they might be nervous too.
Letting them know about the anxiety normally helps you feel better about it as you don't have to try to hide it all night.
