I have a loving, accepting family, many friends, and no issues or problems to speak of.
I have been on the dating scene for a little while now, and have been going out with a really great guy for the past few months.
I find him genuine, sensitive, smart, attractive, and with life goals very similar to mine. I worry that every date will be the last, even though I can tell he is interested in me.
When I hear the details of how a friend of mine was proposed to, I get nervous when I imagine it happening to me.
When my friends tell me about how well their dating lives are going, I am thrilled for them and want to hear details of what’s going on, etc.
But when it's me as the main character, I get very nervous and can't deal with it!This is holding me back from becoming emotionally involved with this man and I want to get over this.Why do I believe that these romantic stories can happen to anybody else, but not to me?Talya Dear Talya, It’s easy for us to see why you’re feeling anxious about the relationship you’re building with this young man.The idea of deciding that a particular person will be the one you will marry and spend your entire life with, is indeed scary.In fact, when it comes to such momentous steps in life, most “normal” people feel some anxiety!
