Dating advice getting nervous
A post shared by Zara Barrie (@zarabarrie) on Zara gets it.
Always fucking torn between two vastly different options, always wanting BOTH, always wanting the best parts of both and always wanting to ditch the shitty (real) parts.
Dayna serves as GO’s nightlife editor and loves to turn up at queer NYC bars & clubs.
She identifies as a dyke princess/Jenny Schecter fan-girl and lives on Long Island to be closer to her lash and spray tan technicians.
But, these feelings don't have to hold you back too. The unique feature of successful daters is not the absence of "dating anxiety", but rather the ability to control it.
The popular women, social guys, natural seducers and pick-up artists all have tips, tricks, and methods to lower their anxiety, stay calm, and act confidently. Below, I'm going to share with you one method to beat dating anxiety...
Getting some human interaction with someone you know and love will get you out of your head and ease you into the date. Try it with me: In through the nose, out through the mouth. Whoever I’m dating is going to eventually find out that I’m the queen of anxiety anyway, so why not just be honest?
Because those are the things that are usually worth it. Unless you aren’t into shaving, which is fine by me, babe.
The girl that wants to stay single forever and masturbate my way through life to avoid human interaction, and the girl that thrives off of human connection and sex. And the old saying is true: you should do one thing every day that scares you.
On the other hand, meeting someone new can prompt feelings of curiosity and hope about positive possibilities.
Kashdan and Roberts (2006) then go on to show that focus (on anxiety or curiosity) determines how social situations are experienced.
