Im 21 and deathly afraid of intimacy, what should I do?

So basically I'm 21 and I'm scared to death about just holding a guys hand. Like I end up shaking. I have no idea what's wrong with me. I didn't experience any childhood trauma or anything. But I end up like a deer in headlights. I have kissed one guy and it really wasn't consensual he just kind of did it... Which petrified me... so I don't count it. But even before that I was scared to death.

And I started seeing this guy recently and I'm not sure whether to tell him or just ride it out... And if I should tell him... How do I bring that up? Like "hey, I like you, but the thought of touching you terrifies me."... I feel like that's a real awkward conversation to have.

So in conclusion I am very not normal and need therapy... It happens to the best of us honestly. Lmao
