First a little about me, I'm 32 years old and have suffered from GAD for as long as I can remember! Naturally, anxiety has affected many relationships in my life. I recently met a boy, and we had an amazing first date! Previously, I was pretty much single for 8 years, and then this boy caught my eye.
Now that I am starting to hang out with him more, I find myself trying to find issues, and negative traits in him, and I am wondering if it's my anxiety's doing?
Also, we went to our first party last night, and I was so concerned what my friends would think of him! If they didn't laugh at a joke, or include him in a convo, immediately I wanted to runaway from him
I find since he's been in my life, my anxiety has been much worse, and I'm back to taking my atavin again to cope, and I don't like that. Maybe I am just better off single
Any similar stories or experiences? Thank you!!
