What are your experiences with CPTSD and dating?

I just decided to start dating again after 1 1/2 year of getting out of a narcassistic relationship. Most of my trauma comes from childhood but my partner definitely added to it. I find vulnerability so difficult. I started seeing someone casually and now I just want to take it back and not talk to them anymore. I have been so anxious and uncomfortable but logically I don't have a reason to be.

If only logic could take care of such problems, would anybody have them?

"Well, this anxiety makes no logical sense." (anxiety all gone)
