I can’t turn off my thoughts
I'm not really sure how to parse the stream of thoughts that got me to "I can't turn off my thoughts" ... that's probably because they're anxious thoughts, and they're running around all over the place. I guess I'll start by saying that I recently started online dating.
I don't think that I'm a good "dater." I'd much rather skip ahead and either be branded girlfriend or left alone. The in-between is not fun for me. I get anxious, paranoid and insecure. I've had a lot of false starts lately, so online dating seemed more deliberate -- a better way to get to the point. And in fact, I've met someone I like. We've been seeing each other for over a month now. My problem is that I can't let go from there.
