I’d like to stop having anxiety when I’m texting the people I’m dating. Sometimes I’ll respond to texts and worry I’ve said the wrong thing.
I find myself overthinking text conversations and looping thoughts like…
“maybe he wasn’t being flirty when he said that and I responded in the wrong way”
“maybe he doesn’t get my sense of humor and isn’t texting back because he’s confused or thinks I’m weird”
“maybe he takes hours to text back because he doesn’t want to get to know me”
“he might think I’m clingy if I keep texting him first”
“he’s not interested because he doesn’t text me every day”
“he responded with a few words so he doesn’t want to talk right now”
I know these thoughts are unproductive. I enjoy dating but don’t enjoy this texting anxiety that comes with it.
