I have just recently started dating again. I was with my ex for two years, and it took me another three to get up the nerve to date again. Recently, as I was failing horribly at finding anyone in person, I have dived into the realm of online dating.
I met a guy, K, who seemed perfect at first. I had panic attacks about going on dates because of my anxiety issues, and how badly my previous relationship ended, and he was always very understanding and helpful with it. We were together for three weeks before he decided that he wasn’t ready to be in a relationship again yet, and that we were just too different. I took the break up hard, becuase even though we weren’t together that long, I had strong feelings for him.
I waited about a month, and I recently started seeing someone else, T. He’s tall and smart and cute. He makes me laugh and we have things in common, mainly the important things. He reminds me so much of my first ex, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. I loved my ex and the person he was, but it also ended badly. I have always struggled with dating due to my anxiety issues, and I don’t want this relationship to be a repeat of past ones.
Hopefully, T and I can turn out better than my past relationships.
