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.

You can figure all that out later, for now just go with it, yanno? Not sure that cofee will help your nerves, though :p
Hope you have a nice date!

How fun! I did a few of the 'dating the internet guys' thing too. Most of the time, it seemed to me at least...they're much wittier and more intelligent on the computer. LOL Good luck. And don't be nervous. Just look at your peek-ture. You're beautiful, intelligent, and a wonderful person. What IN THE WORLD do you have to be nervous about? =)

Try not to think about whether or not you will hit it off with him right now. Just look at it as a chance to acquaint yourself with him in person. If things go well all the better. Just gauge it the way that is best for you.

LOL! I'm one of those horror stories!!! ROFL!
Just go with it, it's just coffee, a meet and greet.
Hmmm, yeah I do know what you mean about
that connection...just like you, I just KNOW!
Have fun, if nothing else, someone to hang out
with and have coffee! Love you, Penny

YAY ROBBIE!!! Just remember though, he's just as nervous as you are if not more. So let him do all the sweating (you know what I mean) and don't worry about what ifs. Stay calm and collected and don't be a HO! LOL! Make him wait! :-)

Robbie the pic is nice. ALso take the chance and drop the nerves. I can promise you the worst will be 1 you want to leave right away or 2 you fall in love. john

Aww Robbie, you'll do fine! You have the right attitude, no expectations. After all, what do you have to lose. If there isn't a strong connection, at least you can cross him off the list of possibilities and move on to a more promising one. As for being ready, you'll know. And if you're not, that's fine too, take your time! =D
