I have really high levels of anxiety and for that reason I don't think ever get or hold down a romantic relationship

Any advice for me?

I think you mentioned that you were treating your anxiety with medication but have you tried therapy? Some people find that really helpful.

Anxiety is difficult to live with, but it doesn’t mean that a romantic relationship is impossible. It’s something that a lot of people, even those in relationships, struggle with.
