If you are like most people, then you probably worry about dating. The question of “What will they think of me?” is a common one that many people ask themselves when they go on a date. If this is something that’s been plaguing your thoughts and making it difficult for you to find success in the dating world, then read on. In this blog post we’ll cover some things that may be causing your anxiety and how to fix them so you can start getting dates!
Causes of Dating Anxiety:
The stress that dating can cause, and the fear of other people’s opinions are just two possible causes for anxiety. These days it seems like everyone is worried about what a date will think before he or she even goes on one. It’s important to figure out where your own anxieties lie so you can determine the best way to address them.
How To Fix Dating Anxiety:
Once you’ve determined what’s causing your anxiety, it becomes easier to find a solution that works for you. For example if someone is stressed out about going on a date because they are afraid of how others will perceive him or her, then he or she might decide to try to change the situation by meeting at a coffee shop, or going on a more public date that has less pressure.
Here are some additional things that can help with anxiety:
-Nervousness is normal when dating and it’s important to remember this before you go into any type of social interaction. It doesn’t matter if someone else will judge you, the only person that’s judging is yourself.
-It can be helpful to keep a list of what you like about yourself and refer back to it when you start worrying too much. This helps remind you that there are things about yourself worth liking! Affirmations on your greatness.
-If anxiety becomes overwhelming or doesn’t resolve itself after trying out these suggestions, then it might be time to see a therapist who can help you work through the cause of the anxiety.
-It’s also important to have realistic expectations about what these dates are going to look like and how they’re going to go. If your date goes well but there is no chemistry between them, don’t panic! It doesn’t mean that there’s something wrong with you, it just means they weren’t the right person for you.
-Also think about talking to a date coach. They can coach you on how to start conversations, what you should and shouldn’t do on a date, and more. A lot of matchmakers, including our agency, offers this as part of the service.
The best thing you can do is get started on your search for love and just go into it with a positive attitude. And if you’re not sure where to start, consider hiring an agency like ours!
