Ok so I'm on my own with my DD(6) and have been since she was born.
It's taken me a ridiculously long time to get over my ex and the whole sorry situation so although I have had a few little flings, there has been no-one "serious" since then. Mostly Internet dates that have then led to a short term fling (though one did last a year).
So tomorrow I have a date with a man who I know through my DDs school. I have been for a coffee with him and chat to him quite a bit in the playground and now we are going for a drink!
Argh! I really like and fancy him and I feel all vulnerable. What to wear? Where to go? Heeeeeelp!
Aww how lovely :-) Just try to stay calm and be yourself. He's probably nervous too! Perhaps have a think beforehand about some topics of conversation for those quiet times. If you're just going to a local pub then I would perhaps wear jeans and a nice top. Just remember he must like you too or he wouldn't have asked you to go for a drink. Be confident in yourself. Hope it goes well-come back and tell us all about it!
Fab, well he clearly fancies you too or he wouldn't be going on a date with you. And not only that he also already likes you because you've had some time to get to know each other a little. Just be yourself and you can't lose. I've got a blind date Saturday. You will be one of many. Have fun, you deserve it.
Vulnerable is natural. Fantastic news that you hit it off. Ooh... this could be the start of something amazing. Just keep being you and I'm sure you all be just fine. How bloody exciting. Keep us up to date.
