I wonder if there is such thing as PTSD for dating. I mean I have these awful flashbacks to what other dudes did and then when the new guy does something similar even if it isn't really similar I freak out and run or do something stupid. Do I need help :-(
I'm so sad...
some people are telling me it IS PTSD and others say no. Maybe I will just ask a therapist.
Maybe it's just more of a fear that you have. I kinda had the same thing going into my current relationship from a very abusive one with my ex. I was quite stand off ish at first but I really like my boyfriend so I just stuck through it and got over my fear. Every now and and then he will say something that will make me think about my ex and I get a little anxious but he knows when I'm anxious so he knows not to pester me and to just try calm me down.
Maybe if you just explain to the person that you're dating about this and they might be more understanding and might even fight for you.
I think I have it hahahahah... I'm really afraid of girls now... I always put myself out there because if I don't they certainly won't... And everytime it kills my self esteem and it's just like... Girls only want confidence in dudes... And they keep taking it from me Hahahaha!!! So yea I'm pretty afraid to tell girls how I feel now... You would think I would Get more braisin as I age but so far I've been getting more timid... And basically using my past actions as a refersnce and a reason NOT to approach or catch feelings for a Girl... Even if she likes me and wants me to say something to her... I can't see her intentions so I'm afraid yea.. So I don't know when I'll be dating again
