I've started dating this guy who lacks self-confidence in a major way. We were supposed to go on a date a few months ago and he cancelled at the last minute because he was too afraid it wouldn't go well — which he just explained to me last week. He's always been teased by his friends, too, because he's never had a serious relationship and he's only shared two kisses in his life. Eventually I got to know him more and we definitely hit it off. I like him a lot, but it's getting really annoying and awkward to be around a guy who has no backbone. I tried kissing him the other night, but he freaked out and backed away because he was so nervous. I just don't want his insecurity to get in the way of our relationship. Is this too big of a problem for me to keep seeing him, or will it pass?
