Have developed an intense FEAR of DATING over the last couple of years. I meet some nice, cute guys, but find myself "psyching myself out" of the potential relationship prior to our first date! Then I end up cancelling the date for any number of excuses. I never even give the guy a chance. I realize what I'm doing, but can't stop it. I know I need to start trusting men again, but it's harder than you think. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE men! I love to flirt, and love to have male friends who I can hang out with. But when I feel one getting too close, it makes me uncomfortable and I start avoiding them. Maybe I'm just not ready to put my heart "out there" again. Like the Elton John lyrics: "don't feel nothing, just feel pain." I Anyone going through the same thing???
