Does anyone have anxiety related to dating?

One of my biggest anxiety issues is when it comes to dating. I have dated and had relationships but not many and mainly because the idea of a first date scares the crap outta me. Not so much the date or the guy as the whole, what if I have an attack while on that date and it all goes to crap. I know there's nothing to be nervous about, that I'll be find and that the end result of being in a relationship is great but sometimes I get stuck in my own head. Any thoughts, suggestions, comments??

Anxiety has really impacted all aspects of my social life. I feel very trapped because I'm not a shy person, I love to talk and I have an overwhelming urge to socialize, but my anxiety keeps me mostly homebound and away from anywhere where I could meet people. I make all of my friends online and the ones that live nearby I will meet up with eventually, but it's important to me to befriend them first and let them know about my condition (and to know that they are comfortable with it). It helps so that if I act unusual in public or have a panic attack, they will know what's happening and not that I am like, trying to creatively end the date or something lol.
