However, I have general anxiety and OCD made worse by an emotionally abusive relationship that ended last fall. The new guy I am talking to is great but he takes a long time to respond. The worst is when I see he has read it and then I sit there waiting for him to respond. Can sometimes be a few hours after he even read it! He has admitted that he is a bad texter and has tried to be better for me.
How do i calm myself down and stop overthinking? I really like this guy and I don't want my anxiety to be a turn off or push him away! Its just texting but it makes me so nervous like at any point he is just going to ghost me. I know its not rational but I can't help but overthink that it means he doesn't like me
