Dating : How to deal with the yips?
I’m a guy in my late 20’s and like 99% of the time I’m totally fine. I go on lots of dates, meet some great girls, I have good relationships with my friends and family, I’m comfortable with strangers, etc.
But I get the yips.
When I’ve been on 3-4 dates with a girl and I know I like her and she likes me, I just like…completely implode. All of a sudden I get super insecure, I become a total overthinker (if anything I’m typically an underthinker). I’ve been funny and fun and the conversations about everything have just flowed, and then all of a sudden I have no idea what to say or what to talk about. It’s like a flip switches.
Have any of you dealt with this? What do you think is the cause and what might help?
