Why am I always overthinking and worrying about dating and relationships?

Anonymous
I have a good life but I'm a worrier and always overthink stuff. I don't know where this comes from. I worry about normal stuff, like work and family issues but they're not as consuming when it comes to relationships. I worry about that to the point where it becomes unhealthy and I feel thoroughly miserable. Honestly, my brain won't switch off and I'm dating this great guy but I can't seem to enjoy myself sometimes (not when with him). He doesn't know how deep this goes; I know as a person I'm usually happy and confident, and I try to see this "worry/anxiety" as something which is not me, but it always consumes me when I'm not with him.
Why can't I just relax? How do I switch my brain off? Does anybody else experience this or know of any reason why I might be like this? I hate it. I don't know what's wrong with me.
