Hi, I have depression and currently am going to the therapist's office once a week. I feel very lonely ever since my daughter moved out and I decided to start dating again. I feel very anxious and as if I am dragging myself when talking to someone new. Do you date? How?
Hello @brokencookie! How are you feeling today?
Thank you for starting this discussion today. Dating can be challenging, especially when living with depression and anxiety. It is important to take time to get comfortable with the idea of meeting new people, identify what triggers your anxiety and work through it. I will tag some members who might want to share their opinions on this topic.

Hello everyone! how are you doing today?
Do you date? How do you come with depression and/or anxiety when dating? What can you recommend to someone who is starting to see new people and experiencing such challenges?

Hi everyone. Great topic, dating while feeling depressed & anxious. I never have dated, am autistic, & just figured it was a waste of time. I can be friends w ppl, but have no desire to be in relationships. Guess I'm not best judge of this topic to answer. If anyone else has thoughts, plz let us know. Also I'm 57, past anywhere when ppl want to go on dates. True, ppl can grow together as we get older, but am really set in my ways, & don't want to share my life. I'm happily single.

No I really am afraid to date because I don't want anyone to know my business. That I'm on disability and live in subsised housing
No, I can'at s eem to get bak into the dating game. I am so depressed, I can't seem to want to do anything. I started a book and haven't finished it, started a support group and can't get into it. It seems I have lost interest in so much, lost a lot of friends because of depression and I was seeing a therapist, but they are no longer taking clients. I feel so lost and alone.
