Half tongue in cheek half please help me...

If you've been out the game for a while how do you "restart" the flirting game?

Every time I see the new man I like im a sweating stuttering mess, I've already messed up the so called first impression (several times over) so how do you get rid of the butterflies and try to act normal?

At my age I should really know better but I honestly turn to jelly when he is near

Maybe just try to accept it? Often when I feel I'm going to be nervous, I tell myself it's ok to come across as nervous, you're not doing anything wrong, and it takes the pressure off. I also take the piss out of my anxiety, draw attention to it so it doesn't seem like this unspeakable, insurmountable thing, & that seems to help me too.
oh and beta blockers grin

I bet you haven't come across anywhere near as badly as you think! good luck!
