Do you have fears about dating? Many people have such fears -- such as saying the wrong thing or not knowing what to do or say -- so you are not alone. The best way to prepare yourself is to think about situations that may arise and come up with possible responses. If you have made mistakes while dating in the past, think through ways you could have more effectively responded in those same situations. 'Be prepared' is the best way to deal with your dating fears. But hopefully you can still be a little spontaneous, too.
