Therapy: If you haven't worked through the multitude of feelings that arise from early sexual trauma then i recommend that. You can find a therapist here: http://www.Rainn.Org/get-help you can also start forcing yourself to connect with others with the aim of meeting someone romantically. In general, when we do the thing we are afraid of then the anxiety goes down. Be well, .
