Question: Is it normal to feel anxious when starting a new relationship?

Is it normal? Yep. “Relationship anxiety is extremely common,” says Astrid Robertson, a psychotherapist who helps couples with relationship issues. Some people experience relationship anxiety during the start of a relationship, before they know their partner has an equal interest in them.

Why do I get anxious when my partner leaves?

Everyone knows its no fun to be away from your significant other. Studies using anecdotal evidence have indicated that long-term separation from a romantic partner can lead to increased anxiety and depression as well as problems such as sleep disturbances.

Why does a relationship make me feel trapped?

Having a partner who is unwilling to contribute can cause overwhelming strain on a relationship, especially financially. Although it might be easy to say just leave or youre being used, its easier said than done, and it can cause a person to feel like they are trapped.

Is it common to have doubts in a relationship?

Doubt is a perfectly normal part of any relationship. Youve heard it before, but its worth repeating: Pretty much everything in a relationship boils down to communication, Batshaw says. Its important to keep our partners informed about what were thinking so they know how to adapt — and vice versa.
