Dating someone with social anxiety disorder

Meeting other people is, of course, very difficult when you're anxious in social situations.The following are ten different tips and strategies for dating and meeting people when you suffer from social anxiety.

Yes, the first tip is a boring one, but also extremely important.

For example, there are several places online to find hiking groups, and hiking groups are generally 4 to 5 people at most.

Even though such a small group of people means that you may not find someone you connect with, small groups also give you an opportunity to practice socially and could introduce you to friends, which in turn can help you meet someone someday.

Go to spend time with your best friend, where meeting people is a bonus.

They say that relationships are more likely to start when you stop looking for one.

One of the reasons that this is probably true is that those looking for a relationship get overly focused on anyone they meet, putting a great deal of pressure on its success.

Social anxiety is at its worst in environments that promote too much social behavior.

Many people with social anxiety still try to meet people in "normal" meeting places, like bars, clubs, or parties.

Once you've done that, then you can worry about trying to meet the right person, and not "any" person. Those that wait and wait and wait are only going to experience more anticipatory anxiety, which will likely make their overall anxiety worse.

If you do have enough bravery to go to an event and try to meet people, then make sure you start strong. Those that have severe social anxiety and get panic attacks should also learn to control them.

Try to talk to multiple people in a night and promise to yourself that you will give none of them your phone number or contact information.
