About 1 month ago, I met someone I think is the prettiest woman on match within 50 miles from me, seems to be the sweetest woman I’ve ever met. We went on a first date within 1 week of her messaging me. I thought the date went well. Besides the fact that saying I was physically attracted to her would be an understatement, I felt a romantic connection with her. I could tell that she had severe social anxiety, she stuttered and seemed very nervous. We went for dinner and then went for a drink afterwards. The date ended after 4 hours and a few kisses. 2 days later, I asked her out again. She said that she was taking a break from dating but wished to stay in touch with me. She stated she had family issues (that she mentioned before us meeting). For the last 5 weeks, she has texted me good morning, how was your day, good night, etc. I asked her out again, she said she’s taking a break from dating still. I told her that I’d love to see her again as a friend or otherwise.

We never missed a day, afternoon or night that we didn’t text each other. I don’t mind talking to her but of course, I am not taking a break from dating even tho the women I am meeting I don’t like nearly as much as I like her. I am on online dating to meet women to do things with, not to have a distance relationship (not that she’s far away). I don’t want to seem pushy and I can believe she has severe social anxiety. I have never been in this situation before, what should I do?

Some people grow up with a special character. Their heart becomes cool and soft. They could not forget their past event. So they suffer a lot from anxiety. I think that dating means “Man or woman delight with their opposite for a short time”. So the person who dates now and then must forget the event. If he /she does not forget it, they suffer a lot from social anxiety.

Maybe she’s just nervous/uncomfortable because of her anxiety and feels embarrassed about it. I went through a phase where I met someone amazing, but I was dealing with a lot of issues in my family which were causing me to be on edge/anxious. If she is stuttering, it may be humiliating for her. I was a stutterer as a child. I got bullied A LOT. People can be cruel, at times. I would back off a little and date other people. I would keep texting and giving her space to deal with how she feels. Sometimes a couple of weeks can be enough to bring a socially anxious person out of his/her shell. I just wouldn’t pry or remind her about it. That could make things worse. Anyway, I hope that helps. Good luck 🙂
