I just had a first date with this guy I’ve been talking to, for about a month.
I thought the date went well and I want to see him again.
But immediately, as soon as I said bye to him. My anxiety kicked in.
What if he didn’t like me? What if all the hype of meeting each other after many delayed dates wasn’t worth it for him? He didn’t really have too much physical interaction, wait he doesn’t like me?? Do first dates end with a kiss or hug? I don’t know. I guess he didn’t feel the same way??
What if he doesn’t text me anymore after tonight?
What if he ghosts me (like the other guys)?
What if ?
Why do you have to do this to me? Anxiety…why?
Why can’t I focus more on how handsome he is, his smile or his hug? The fact that he said, I’ll talk to you soon. Or that he responded to my text when I got home and texted him thank you for dinner.
No. Because anxiety has to f*cking ruin it.
I didn’t have too much anxiety all day prior to the date.
But anxiety was there waiting for me, as soon as I said bye to him.
I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of my anxious mind diverting my mind towards overthinking and negative thoughts.
I just want to feel okay.
I want to feel like my life is going into a good direction. And not have suspicions that something bad is going to happen when life gets steady.
I hate you anxiety.
