Has Anxiety effected your relationship/love life/sex life?

Posted , 8 users are following.

I was single at the time my anxiety creeped in. But before i was always out and about meeting new people dating and having fun. Then when my anxiety creeped in i started to slowly but surely become more and more reclusive to the point of being housebound.  I went from being a total extrovert, to an introvert. My sex drive remained unchanged and has always been high, but the anxiety kept me from dating or having any kind of sex life/love life for a time. I have my ways now, but i look forward to getting better and getting back on the dating scene again. smile

How about you?

    My anxiety didn't stop me from dating, but it didn't exactly make my relationships good either. It's hard to have a fulfilling relationship when you're anxious and messed up most of the time and pretty much the only place you feel safe is home.

    Hope you feel better soon and can enjoy life to the fullest!

    My episodes of anxiety always affect my marriage, my wife finds it stressful at times but on the whole is supportive, she obviously wants the other "me" back.
