  • Yes, definitely because the weird thing about anxiety is with the right people it can be controlled and shifted and it'll help that person out a lot with their anxiety

  • I did for 3 years.
    My short perspective on it would be, it's hard, but not so hard as to not bother. But what relationship isn't?
    As a very outgoing happy-go-lucky person, it was very odd to others that we ended up together.
    She has pretty intense social anxiety. Miniscule friendship circles. Speaking with an assistant at a store was rarely going to happen no matter if it was necessary or not, she'd rather go without something than to talk to someone to get the thing she needed. Vulnerable as heck, a small negative thing occurring in the morning would haunt her thoughts of an evening. Breakdowns could and did happen.

    But you know what? I love the fuck out of her. Most people with anxiety, or social anxiety, typically aren't so bad in a private space, one on one. Especially once the initial conversations are done. I knew who she truly was, which was different to who she put on display for everyone else.
    I wanted to help her, and if I couldn't, at least be able to sub in and get something done that she simply could not.
    I'm probably rambling at this point, thought I'd go for a more detailed response due to personal experience. I hope I helped in some way.

  • Really depends on what they get it about. If its about something specific then sure. That can be handled.

    If its one of those things where they just get anxious out of nowhere and kind of shut down and constantly need me to come to the rescue, no; fuck that. I'm trying to be a boyfriend, not a therapist or caregiver to someone who can't function a day without going into total collapse.

  • Not again she was so paranoid that I could never relax and have fun. She made everything into a sexual reference and would always be acting different based on how she thought I was acting. Which was happy with her.

  • No thanks. I had already. Long and intense. It’s a horror show. Dealing with irrational fear is impossible for a normal person.

  • I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder at a very young age, so I have no place to judge others in that light. I’m actually seriously dating someone who deals with anxiety as well though. Our similarities within mental issues brought us closer together.

  • I have dated someone with it bad and all he talked about was being depressed. And literally that’s all we talked about. And he would continue apologizing for no reason. There’s a certain limit where I would date someone that had bad anxiety but in general I think everyone has anxiety to some extent

  • Yes, but it does depend on how severe it is. I have mild anxiety and it certainly doesn’t effect my life and my relationship very much at all partly because I’m medicated. But someone with severe anxiety and unmedicated I would not date. That’s a nightmare

  • I have anxiety about physical intimacy, so my partner would have to be the patient one, seeing as how I don't get physical with any partners so far.

  • Probably not. I'm diagnosed with GAD and I can't see a situation where we wouldn't just make each other more anxious. Health comes first.
