I have many reasons and issues to overcome to battle this problem myself, so what I recommend to you is exploring why, when, and what.
Do you find it difficult to meet people for the first time? I had this problem, and it was major big. Often I would panic and feel anxious when a new person came along. What I did may not work for you, but hey, I will give it to you anyway. First, I was brought up by a paranoid schizophrenia that punished me while talking to other people, and forbidden me from getting to know others. I had to drop the wall my father’s disease planted in my mind. Thus, learn to tell self it is safe and that you have permission to meet anyone you like. Remember, most people meeting you are nervous too, therefore relate, and associate.

Remember, most of us are uneasy on any first date, but it is how you deal with it that determines your level of anxiety and panic. Just be you and you will do well.
