Dating with Anxiety
Comment 1

You’re Not Alone if You Feel Nervous About Dating

Something really cool has happened over the past few years. I started this blog in 2013. It began as a place where I could think through pain points I’d had while trying to date as I also dealt with anxiety. One of my mantras when I thought about starting this blog was, “I can’t be the only one.” As you guys have shown me, I’m not.

And I have the evidence to prove it.

This site is powered via WordPress. There are thousands of people who find my blog via search engines online (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc).

For 95% of these searches I’m unable to see the words people typed in that led them to this site. But for the other 5% I can see what someone searched for. There are no other identifying factors for the search terms, so there’s no way to know the person’s age, gender, hometown, etc. Yet this anonymity makes me feel all the more connected.  And it’s one of the coolest things.

In 2016 so far here’s a sampling of what people are searching for on the internet.

One thing is for sure; you are not alone.

I love you guys.
