It seems like every time I read an article about how to help anxiety, or how to deal with someone who has anxiety, the information is always the same and it’s usually super clinical. It’s very rare I read something on a medical or psychology website about how to help anxiety and go, “why yes, that is exactly what I need, how could I not have seen it before?” In fact, that never happens, and it’s probably not going to happen with you here today, either. All I know is that I have anxiety and I also have a boyfriend who’s walking on eggshells trying to understand what it is that I need from him and how to help me. So what is it that he and countless other partners out there in the dating world are doing that doesn’t help, and what can they do that does?
