I've recently been diagnosed with depression and anxiety . One situation that has happened lately is really taking a toll on my anxiety . I met a guy online , and I know that he likes me . We've been talking for a while , and are planning to meet each other in a few months . He's starting to get a little socially awkward , so much that he struggles to keep the conversation going . I've called him out on it , thinking that he didn't like me anymore . He's got me constantly worrying , even though he said to me that even though he didn't answer it didn't mean he didn't want to talk to me at the moment . I'm starting to worry all the time about our "relationship" together , but I don't know how to talk to him about it . What should I do ? I want to stop worrying all the time about someone leaving me because I'm being too needy/clingy . My depression has made me feel like I would break apart if I lost someone again . I can't deal with that again .

  • I am an "oldster" so online meeting ( except in a group like this which is new to me and I find helpful) for dating is something that is different. If it's making you uncomfortable ( which is understandable) then just stop. In the mean time, hang with those who support you and listen.
