Here’s my problem:
I always try to understand what’s going on in other’s people minds. When I am on a date, I am saying to myself:
I can’t say that,
Maybe I will hurt him,
Maybe he will think I am needy
Maybe he will reject me

Then, I either hide and don’t say anything or I say the exact opposite of what can serve me. For example, if he is talking about having a serious relationship, I say to him: I don’t like serious relationships even though that’s exactly what I really want.

I know that I am not a mind reader, and I know that I am profoundly afraid of being rejected but I would like to just take it easy and connect to myself rather than expecting what others may think about me.

How can I do it?
