Compared to the problems others have shared on this forum, mine are minimal. However I think a lot of women could relate, and it would be great to get your input. I have been dating for the last three years and experienced ghosting, benching and all of the above when it comes to today's new dating routines. I want a relationship, but get the whole "I'm not ready for something serious speech" from the first date. Needless, to say dating causes me a lot of anxiety, mainly due to texting and I would really like to know how to control it.
I am currently dating the most amazing guy for the last 3 weeks and his texting today was almost non-existent. There might not be anything bad going on from his end, but I can't help but have very negative thoughts and just feel heartache as if everything was already over. I feel in a "Brace for impact" type of way - which I know is not good. Any tips on how to handle this best? I wish we still lived in a society with landlines were relationships were not "online" and instead were based more on being with the person.
Thank you in advance!
