Review request: 14k vs 13k

I just played this live 19x19 game in which I lost:

I am mostly interested in the first 50 moves or so. I find it especially hard to deal with attacks like the one my opponent launched in move 13 (and again in move 39) where my corner stones are sorrounded. I have had problems dealing with similar situations in previous games as well.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Your play is too timid.

Same advice as I gave here:

You might want to look at Ke Jie’s games.

Thank you so much(!) for your response and for your very useful review of the game. It really helped me understand some of the errors I’ve been making repeatedly for some time now.
