There are some common dating fears that you could be dealing with right now.

Knowing what they are can go a long way toward helping you move past them.

Dating can be scary, especially for women.

From the first date to several months in, the fears are real.

I scoured forums and various comment threads to compile some of the biggest fears people have about dating.2

Here are the most common dating fears. Are you afraid of these things?

1. The Threat That Your Date is a Murderer or Other Type of Criminal

One of the most common dating fears is that he's a bad guy.

We’ve all seen the horror stories of people using dating sites to lure women.

The fear that our dates are serial killers or human traffickers is a huge one.

To help combat this, make sure your friends know where you’re going and when and your date's name and description!

If the worst does happen, you’ll know there are people looking out for you.

2. The Pressure to Get Intimate

The pressure is everywhere to get intimate, even on a first date.2

Some think that because your date bought you dinner or drinks you owe them, some are afraid of their date thinking that they’re “frigid”.

Always remember: your body, your rules.

The perfect match won’t care if you do intimate things the first night, or if you prefer to wait.

3. The Fact That Dating Either Ends in Breaking up or Death

Some people’s biggest fear is as simple as their own mortality and time!

We all die someday and we all get broken hearts, and chances are, one of those ways is how your relationship will end!

Hey, at least your date is probably freaked out by this fact too!

4. The Sheer Cost of Dating

Even if you’re the one being treated to dinner and drinks and fun dates, chances are you’re still spending bucks for your dates too!

From that fresh manicure to those cute new shoes, impressing your date can be just as expensive as financing the dates yourself.

Try to resist that perfect cardigan you see while out shopping because your date likely thinks you’re perfect, even in sweats.
