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.
