Hi. I've been dating this girl for a few weeks but have become a little obsessive, in such that I check my phone inscessantly, over-analyze her texts, worry about being too keen, boring, etc. Basically, she's an incredible girl, and I have this perennial fear that one day she'll text saying I'm lovely, but she's not feeling it.
Because I have IBS, my anxiety can trigger my symptoms and traps me in a vicious cycle, thus making it more difficult for me to enjoy and be myself during dates. I have a problem with not knowing the future, and so am nervous before each date.
Does anyone have any advice on how to relax, stop over-thinking it all, etc, as I'd hate to mess it up because of my psyhocological condition? I don't take medication but I am undergoing cognitive therapy, and also try to exercise, meditate, and do weekly yoga.
