(NEW YORK) -- Dating used to be so simple for men. All they had to do was figure out something to say and get the courage to call their intended date on the phone.
But that's not the case anymore. TSB magazine says what ties guys up in knots these days is what to say in a text when seeking a date. In fact, a third of the men in the TSB survey admitted that coming up with the right text message frustrated them the most in trying to ask a woman out.
Next on the list of what gives men sweaty palms in today’s dating scene is carrying on an interesting conversation with a pretty girl they recently met. Twenty-two percent said this was their biggest concern, while 12 percent in the TSB poll had qualms about simply approaching a woman they’ve had their eye on.
Then there’s that moment about whether or not it’s appropriate to end a first date with a kiss. Eighteen percent say that's their biggest dating fear.
Other anxieties included 10 percent with the fear of women seeing them more as a friend than a love interest, and 6 percent worried about "hitting it off with a woman only to have her shift her interest to someone else."
