As my improv teacher used to say, is there any difference between fear of success and fear of failure? You only fear success because you might then lose it.

But yeah, I kind of agree with you. Sometimes I find myself doing really well with the girl, but then I eject too early before asking for her number etc. It’s a fear of the unknown to some degree, but I think it really comes down to fear of failure. Deep down a part of you doesn’t quite believe you can get her number or whatever.

But you know what? One thing I’ve realised recently is that it’s kinda pointless to try and figure everything out. You’re never going to know exactly why you’re afraid. It’s better to just accept that life is a mystery to live, rather than a problem to be solved, and find the best tactics for dealing with your situation.
