I'm feeling a little nervous today. I don't do well with nerves. I'm not a nervous person by nature. I usually take the "what will be - will be" mentality. So, I'm really hating myself for feeling this way, especially about a guy. You see, I have a coffee date today. A blind date, per se. I met Darren online quite a few months ago. We emailed each other some, then he disappeared. He spends long stretches of time overseas. We IM'd some, then he disappeared. He spends long stretches of time overseas. Well, he's back in town. Or should I say SoCal, because he's not even in my town. He's down in San Diego. When I told Kevin about it he laughed, it seems everyone I meet online is in San Diego.
Darren and I finally made the next step to talk on the phone yesterday, twice even. He sounds very nice and intelligent to boot. I asked him how long he would be in town this time and he said he planned on staying long enough so we could finally meet. I just told Kevin the other day that I have no intention of dating anyone anymore until this semester is over. The fiasco with the coffee guy turned me off from wasting my time. In addition, I keep reading these online dating horror stories in other journals. I've been out on dates before with guys I've met online, I usually take them with a grain of salt and expect nothing to happen. Because when I've met the guys in person there just wasn't a connection, except for Mike. Mike and I hit it off immediately. Maybe that's what has me so nervous. What if I do hit it off with this guy? Am I ready for that? Uggg! I hate feeling nervous and sheesh about a guy to boot.
