When getting back into the dating game, there is a chance that you will not be comfortable with yourself or the possible changes that have occurred since you left the dating scene. As a result, you might find yourself experiencing dating anxiety (self-anxiety) which hinders your ability to be yourself and find a suitable partner. This, however, is no reason to panic--although you will; instead, it is an opportunity to consider the need for counseling, just to get you back into the swing of things.
Seek Assistance When Dating with Anxiety
Dating with anxiety and depression is a grueling task. Because it is a challenge, it is advisable to seek assistance in the form of therapy to help you overcome it. An even more challenging situation that also requires counseling is dating someone with anxiety, depression, or PTSD (some variation of). It is seemingly difficult if you have never suffered from the same. If not handled properly, it becomes overbearing and one resorts to a feeling of helplessness.
