Examine your thinking – Anxiety makes it difficult to objectively assess whether a worry is legitimate.
For example, if you are feeling more anxious in general, then you might convince yourself that your partner is cheating or planning to leave you when there’s no evidence.
Because of the uncertain outcome, people can experience a fair amount of anxiety about their current romantic relationship or the hurdles of pursuing a new one.
Many people find that having an untreated anxiety disorder can affect their romantic life.
• Do you experience anxiety when your partner is away?
If you’re not certain where to start, think of what you worry about most when it comes to your romantic relationship.
How would your best version of yourself address this issue?
However, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to have a diagnosed anxiety disorder for anxiety to interfere in your romantic relationship.
Everyone is susceptible to day-to-day stress manifesting as worry about a relationship, fear of the dating process, or trouble communicating with a partner.
