Are you fed up with nothing happening in your love life? Do you feel scared to put yourself out there and keep hoping if you wait long enough, you’ll just bump into the right person?
No matter how hard you try, you just can’t bring yourself to actively start using a dating site. It feels awkward and uncomfortable, and you feel embarrassed at the idea anyone might see you on there. Perhaps you even signed up and looked at what was on offer, but you couldn’t bring yourself to fill in the profile or put up a picture.
All around you your friends are pairing off and having babies, and you feel like you’re being left behind. Sometimes you beat yourself up, telling yourself off for not doing anything, but when you think about dating your stomach contracts and you feel sick.
You don’t understand why dating seems to be so relaxed and easy to your friends, but for you it feels impossible. You don’t really like talking about it with them anymore, because they just keep telling you to do the same thing.
