The Anxious Dater


I am The Anxious Dater. I have lived in New York City for the last 6–7 years working in advertising and learning how to be an adult. I am fairly successful in one and doing “so-so” in the other.

Personally I have experienced a lot since I have been in NYC and I have learned a lot about myself. A lot of those learnings stem from my dating life in this city.

I have always been level headed and rational, but something about dating in NYC has made me a little anxious. And by little, I mean a lot. After 6+ years in this city, I finally caved and sought out the help of a therapist. Someone I could confide in, and talk to without the feeling of being judged.

I have amassed many dating stories that I have kept mostly to myself. Some good, some bad. Some hilarious and some terrible. I have decided to share my experiences and also hope that I can connect with like-minded people.

I have been sitting on this for a long time and am still trying to figure out what format I want to share my stories. I am by all means a complete amateur when it comes to dating, blogs, and life in general.

But I hope I can bring good stories to the table and can draw out some learnings as I recap past experiences and share new ones.

Stay tuned,
