Dating can leave some people feeling nervous, anxious, and worried. Remember that opening up to someone relatively quickly is not something we have to do in any other situation, so it is not surprising if some people will find the experience hard.
It is not uncommon for people to start out self-conscious, shy, or nervous. If you are naturally quiet or shy, you may well find the first dates challenging. The good news is that it is much less frightening than it seems, and you most likely will find it easier after a few dates.
Quiet types get married at the same rate as louder types – this does not stop you dating or getting married. If you are struggling, it is best to be open about it with your date. This is likely to make it easier for you, and to put your date more at ease.
