Heart Pumping So Hard - Thought It Would Pop Out

I am always nervous when meeting new people, regardless of how much I may not show it - rest assured that the nerves are there. Heck the first time I tried to tell a girl I liked her - I had a full fledged panic attack and figured I'd have a massive coronary in the process. Seriously - my heart was racing about 5 times its usually speed. So what do I do to combat this? I talk myself down, try to get myself to relax. Usually tell myself nothing is going to happen anyway so what's the point of getting worked up over a mere nothing? As odd as it may sound, it works and the panic is restricted to quarters(even if something does happen).
