I have spent the last 2.5 years working to establish myself in my profession. I have worked very hard and, during that time, I haven't given any effort to dating. Now, I'm ready to begin dating again, but its been years since I've even asked a girl out. I have noticed that I have developed a social anxiety of sorts. Its been so long since I've gone out, that when I do, I find myself extremely nervous and uncomfortable. Online dating is not very popular where I live, so that is not much of an option.
How do I break this anxiety issue? How do I get back into dating? Where do I even start!?

I think almost everyone gets nervous at the thought of going on dates and getting to know new people. Whoever you go out with is probably just as nervous as you.
I thought I was the nervous one the last time but when we got to the stage of getting intimate I realized just how nervous he was. It's not a turn off it just triggers the compassion element of a relationship.
So don't worry, it'll be fine. Or at least what's the worst that could happen!?! Just throw yourself into the deep end. If you see someone you like ask them out and don't take it personally if they say no. I rejected loads of guys because I was too nervous about dating. Rejection doesn't always mean they don't like you.0
