In my everyday life I don't normally face anxiety, unless in very difficult situations (normally my father who has had Parkinsons for almost 20 years). Though the anxiety doesn't make me feel sick, it gives me feel nervous.
I've dated a girl on and off for the last 3 years, and the reason things end up breaking off is, as I feel, is relationship anxiety. I assume because I/we have a fear things won't work again, even though before even kissing things are always amazing.
What tends to happen when things become weird/anxious, is that I'd conciously/sub-consciously recognise my girlfriend is acting peculiar/not normal, which in turn makes me almost seize up and not think clearly. Once that happens, I assume the similar happens to my girlfriend who then also "seizes up" and it almost feels like we're both strangers. During that moment, anything I ideally want to say (about the situation) feels like a mountain I need to conquer and I just don't ask it at all.
Has anyone ever witnessed something similar or have any tips to possibly prevent this happening in the future?
Sorry if I've been unclear in my description. Happy to answer any questions anyone has.
