Social anxiety forum dating

Id only be worried that they were there because they felt someone with SA is their only option.

If we talked and had stuff in common then hung out and it went from there it might be ok. There would hardly be anyone on there for a start and it's not important to me if a potential partner has SA or not.

I was worried that i was doing the wrong thing, that he thought i was ugly etc. I don't know if i can be in a relationship when i feel so self conscious and anxious constantly but i dont want to be alone all my life:( I would appreciate your advice.

Thanks I would love some advice on this as well; I have the same worries as you.

Those were the magical words I uttered to my now-husband Dan when we first met.

It didn’t help that he initially went in for a hug, whereas I’m firmly a handshake person.

Theres been a few posted on here, nothing SA specific but mental health/anxiety related. There are meets though- if people aren't happy that some people might go with a 0.1 % chance they might meet someone, then maybe make a dating meet or something.

Seemed they did'nt really get going as they were'nt active but i guess lots of ppl would be interested in a site of that nature. I'm asking out of interest as i remember dating when i was at a low in my Anxiety life it put the fear of god in me even talking to a lady, nevermid all the date malarky! Also isn't there a scarcely used site called shy passions or something? It's hard enough finding people I have things in common with in the population at large, so restricting myself to people who share a particular mental health problem (which is not, I suspect, enough to form the basis of a relationship by itself) would only be making things harder, I suspect.

But I definitely shocked him with my opening statement. or, if I’m totally honest, it makes it a nightmare.

As someone who hates interviews, my performance on a date was never going to be great.

So what i have to ask, id prefer people who have it or dealt with you deal with it?

Hi there Stay And Drown, go back to who diagnosed you with this disorder and ask for a counsellor who can help you to go through 'socialisation therapy'.

Socialisation is a life long process and there is no reason why you can not learn to interact with others in society now in a way that you want to.
