Anxiety And Dating
Today I would like to share with you how difficult it is for people with anxiety to date, people with anxiety avoid many social settings so meeting other single people to date is a very huge challenge. Especially for the people who are divorced and more mature in years this will be a very high stress situation, this seems to be a high stress situation for both genders. As a guy, I have found this very difficult since my divorce over 10 years ago. The guy usually is the one to ask the gal out on a date, when the guy has very high anxiety issues many times he just can not ask a gal out on a date no matter how much he wishes to get to know her. Also for me, experiencing a bad marriage in the past this brings even more severe anxiety symptoms awake. I would like very much to hear from the ladies with anxiety issues what there experience is with dating, please feel free to leave your comments on my website or contact me privately at my email address
Natural Herbal Supplements
I have experimented with both medicine and natural herbal supplements for my own anxiety symptoms, I have had positive experiences with natural herbal supplements with very few or any side effects. On the other hand, my experience with medicine has been very negative with many side effects. Today I only use one natural herbal supplement, this supplement has worked very well for me over the years with decreasing my symptoms to be much more manageable for me. There are many good natural herbal supplement you could consider, everyone’s body is different and so these supplements works different for each person. Sadly, you must experiment with these natural supplements to find which one or ones works best for you.
Online Dating Websites
Thank God for online dating websites for the anxious person, people who are anxious usually are much better communicating with new people best through written communication rather then verbal communication face to face. Once you are familiar with this person through online communication your anxiety decreases a great deal, this will allow you to be more yourself with the other person. I have found myself to form very strong relationships with people I have met online, even today there are a few special people i have met online which still are in my life. Even if you do not meet anyone for the purpose of meeting in person and dating, this is very good therapy for communicating with people and forming good friendships which may last forever.
Matchmaking websites are for the anxious person who is seeking more then a Friday night date, these websites match you up with people who have similar interests and lifestyles your seeking in a soulmate. The majority of people on these types of websites are seriously searching for their soulmate, these people are wishing to meet their life partner so if this is what your also most interested in this is the best website for you .Most people with anxiety issues are not really interested in meeting a lot of people and go on a lot of dates, most are not comfortable meeting new people so if this is you possibly you wold prefer this type of website. The best part of these websites are your not going to be meeting a lot of people who are not the type of person your wishing to meet, these websites saves you time with providing you with people who fit the type of person your looking for.
Chat lines are very popular with people today to meet new people as well, I have not a whole lot of experience with these types of websites. I do know people who have met other people through these types of websites, it is something for you to research and consider as well in your search to meet new people. Many online dating websites now have chatting on their websites, many people who are anxious are not comfortable chatting online with someone new at least not right away. I have found more women are interested in chatting then men online, especially video chat might be anxious for many people since its very close to communicating face to face with this person. I would recommend start out with written correspondence online first, then as your comfortable move to chatting when the time is right for you.
Meeting Someone Online In Person
The longer you know the person and the more time you spend online with them the easier meeting them in person will be, always be careful meeting anyone online the first time. I suggest meeting them in a public place where you feel safe, even take another person with you when first meeting if this will help you feel safer. If the person your meeting is honest and sincere, they will not object you bringing someone with you when meeting. Never give any of your personal information to someone before you have taken enough time to really know this person, with so much identity fraud going on today its best to be safe then sorry.
Meeting people today is done mainly online, especially for us more mature people who have been married before. Unless you have a big circle of friends, it is just plain hard to meet people for dating when your at a more mature age. Actually I am experiencing more and more even younger people searching online for dates and soulmates, most people who marry young marry their high school sweetheart or their college sweetheart. People who do not marry either, often has a more difficult time meeting the right person. People are not as free to meet and start dating when first meeting in person on their daily routine, it takes time to get to know a person and feel comfortable meeting them and going on a date. Our society is just plain more careful then in the past when meeting someone out in public, all the crime has us on protection mode most of the time.
