Nerves and Dating

For some of us nerves and dating go together, unfortunately. Being nervous about dating someone is not limited to young people going out on their first date. The dry mouth, sweaty palms, and inability to think of anything meaningful to say can afflict anyone. Nerves and dating can affect how we act on a date and if we can get up the nerve to ask someone to go out one a date. Is it possible to get over being nervous? Here are a few tips for the poor soul who suffers a bad case of nerves when evening thinking of going out on a date.

  • Nervousness And Fear Are Relative Things: Think about the worst thing that has ever happened to you in your life. Then think about the worst thing that could happen on a date. Hopefully this will give you a sense of perspective and the nerve to move on to go out with that person you find so attractive.
  • Successive Approximations: The fearful nervousness that we sometimes suffer before a date can be reduced. Thinking of things that make us nervous can make those things seem worse. It is a sort of feedback loop. To calm yourself think about the person you find so attractive. Just think about how he or she looks and what their voice sounds like. Then imagine talking to them. Practice something as simple as a greeting. Do this many times until you heart rate slows down. Then think of being with them and talking to them. Practice what you want to say and do it until your palms stop sweating. Get the idea. Work your way in your mind toward the point of beginning your date and you will have substantially reduced your anxiety.
  • Get Angry: If all we have are nervousness and fear they can take over. Think about how you will feel if you totally botch your date because of how nervous you are. Allow yourself to get angry at you. Tell yourself off. Then do it again. That sort of anger is your sense of dignity. Bring that to the fore and you will find yourself less nervous. That is a good way to approach nerves and dating.
  • Do Not Try To Get Married On The First Date: Remember that you are going out on a date and not proposing marriage. Remember that a big part of dating is finding out if that person you find so attractive is really someone that you can stand to be with after the first few minutes or first date. Think of some things to say that will help you learn about this person and do not be all upset if the date ends with a handshake and hot a kiss.
  • Remember How Nervous The Other Person Is: Remember that nerves and dating go both ways. If you think about how to help your new boyfriend of girlfriend with their bad case of nerves it will definitely help you forget about your own.

Nerves and dating have been around for a long time. And they will be around for a long time to come. Despite that fact that many men and women are nervous about dating things work out and relationships bloom. Keep that in mind.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
