Talking about boyfriends...

I’m a little afraid. Let’s face it, I’m a little scared. This Sunday one of my best friends phoned me to say there’s this guy, and she’s been telling him a lot about me and now he wants to meet me. He’s *anxious* to meet me.
Suddenly I feel I’m back to 12 y. o., when a friend told the boy somebody was interested in him, and would he want to discover which of the girls was interested in him? And I’m also feeling she’s pimping me around, which makes me want to laugh. Probably my (lack of) love life is annoying people around me.
She works in a beauty parlor, and on next door there’s a tattoo place. He’s the manager or owner, I didn’t understand it, was married or something like that (and has a little girl), probably has my age... I also didn’t understand why she talked about me to him, but she said he’s been really curious, and a bit anxious, to meet me. It’s been a long time since it happened, and I’m not sure if I remember how to behave in this kind of situation. Well, I’m not sure if I ever knew how to behave in this situation. I know she’d never create me problems, so the guy must be a really nice person, but I’m... scared. I was always a shy woman, my best friends were always other women or gay men, I was never so popular at school or had many male friends or relatives, so I never know exactly what to say or do. This will be stressing, I bet.

I was very shy in school, too, and it was always hard for me to talk with guys. Are you interested in this man?

Good luck and {hugs}.

Anne, I don't even *know* him! My friend is acting like a matchmaker, and I know she'll show him few photos of me, but so far we hadn't met. Hum, let's see what will happen...

I know how you feel, Adriana. I'm very shy when I meet new people. But you 'll see the everything will be just fine. Just be yourself, ask him about his job, his life, etc. Things will just happen naturally. Good luck!:)

Thanks, Ana, now I'm not so anxious, a working day always make you forget a little about your worries, LOL
Anyway I'm waiting for news - I'm sure my friend will invite me to "visit" her at her job soon, just to meet him. Oh God...

Thanks Fiola, I hope things will be fine, even if we're meant to be just friends!

The best advice is always to be yourself. don't worry too much about what this guy thinks because you don't ever have to see him again if you don't want to. And, frankly, if he doesn't like you then he's an idiot and doesn't deserve you. But you never do know, you might really hit it off. And a date is always fun, whether it leads to a lasting relationship or not.
