Dealing With Dating Anxiety

Life is stressful as it is and adding relationships to the mix can play a very negative role on your anxiety levels, especially if you already have a habit of developing panic-stricken attacks when it comes to love and dating.

Over the last 10 years there have been progress in various therapies to help relieve the burden of anxiety. It is best that you try to avoid taking drugs to cope your dating anxiety.

Below are 4 ‘non-drug’ dating anxiety prevention tips:

1. Instead of hiding your nervousness, admit it to yourself and your date. Often times what leads to a major anxiety attack spawns from trying to keep your initial nervousness covered up. If your ‘special someone’ comes into the room to see you then do not pretend your anxiety isn’t there. Simply say “I am sorry if I appear nervous, but I am very nervous right now”. Your date will appreciate the honestly and by telling him/her you’ll feel a lot better.

2. If you had an anxious episode during a date then afterwards do not beat yourself up worrying how you acted. It’s best just to give yourself affirmations in a positive manner that helps you build confidence and do better the next time around by taking control.

3. In order to calm down each time you have an anxiety attack, simply walk away and breath. If you happen to be with your new girlfriend or boyfriend then by following my previous tip on being honest with them about your nervousness, and also let them know that you need a minute alone, walk outside, and breath slowly until you regain composure. Before you know it, this simple technique will calm you down every time.

4. Pray… The power of prayer is amazing. Ask God for courage and strength to help you overcome your anxiety.

Dating Communication Do’s & Don’ts

A very important ingredient to having a superior relationship lies in good communication. In fact, it is almost impossible to have any kind of relationship with a person unless you are able to relate to him or her. The ability to communicate effectively means that you have to pay close attention and to listen very carefully. We all have different methods of communication. You need to be able to understand, appreciate, and respect how other people communicate, especially your dating partner.

A good way to show your date that you are listening carefully to him or her is to repeat what he or she has said. Say for example your partner tells you: “You have been very distant lately”, you then say, “So you are saying I have been distant?” Follow up with an open ended question like “Tell me more about what you mean.” By saying that, you can verify what your partner has said and make him or her feel comfortable about talking to you about his or her concern.

How you communicate with your words could bring comfort by reducing fear and easing tension. The following are some guiding principles to help you take advantage of your words and get your point across more effectively:

DO make the person you are talking to feel secure by offering a lot of support and appreciation. This gets the silent types to open up more and feel at ease.

DON’T make your date feel uncomfortable by judging, criticizing, or making fun of what he or she has to say.

DO relax. Feeling anxious can mess up your confidence and attention. Take deep breaths when you feel like you need to end the conversation because of fear or panic.

DON’T feel that everything has to be resolved at one time.

DO listen carefully and avoid interrupting while the other person is talking.

DON’T use offensive vocabularies and expressions. It is very disrespectful and cheapens you and the person you are talking to.

DO get to the point and be clear on what you want to get across or if you have any questions.

A Look at Christian Dating Services

Churches often stress the benefits of love, marriage, and family life, and Christians are encouraged to form relationships with others. Many Christian singles face the reality that meeting other eligible Christians can be quite difficult. Those in small churches often find it hard to meet enough single people, while singles in large church communities feel under the spotlight, or find it hard get to know people well. For most Christian singles, the opportunities of meeting Christians from other denominations or even just different churches can be rare. Christian Dating Services emerged because Christian singles needed a way to contact other Christian singles in their community. The Christian dating service industry has since grown as a service and business.

The internet has become an important outlet for the dating industry, including Christian dating services. Christian online dating, for some, is a great way to find love, especially if they are looking for someone that shares a devotion to faith and ideals and hopes for a similar lifestyle. Many people are concerned that Christian online dating is not right for them, because of a variety of reasons. Some concerns include the accuracy of profile matches and the truthfulness of other dating service subscribers, but Christian dating services have eliminated the obstacle of spiritual compatibility. The fact that a person is searching for another Christian single immediately eliminates the awkwardness of touching the subject of religion. If two people are compatible in religion, they may be compatible in other ways as well.

Christian online dating can be a great way for single people who are frightened or apprehensive of the online dating experience. Because the target demographic includes people who adhere to a spiritual lifestyle, and therefore have similar morals and values, Christian online dating websites can provide a safe environment for their users.
