Can't explain how nervous I am.

So this afternoon I'm going on a "date". I'm worried sick. He seems really nice so I want to go I'm just worried to death about it.

Some of you might remember my previous threads about my ex boyfriend who didn't work, I supported him financially and all he would do is be verbally abusive to me. I'm worried that people will think I'm moving on to fast or that I didn't love my ex.

Someone tell me I'll be ok. TIA

Relax and enjoy it. Sounds like you deserve it.

Frame it as 'meeting someone for coffee to see how you get on'. Don't invest too much in it, you'll either get on or you won't. If you like the look of each other, arranging another get-together will be the obvious thing to do - if not, you say cheerio and off you go! Good luck

Does it really matter what "people" think?

Seriously, what have you got to lose? Absolutely nothing, you don't even know the guy yet. You have every right to go on this date, just be yourself and enjoy it. Expect nothing, just be in the moment and see where it goes, good luck! smile

Well, my first thought is, meeting someone the first time for coffee is just that, no pressure, just saying hello. Don't panic!

I don't know about the ex but he sounds deeply unpleasant, anyone who is your friend would surely be glad you are moving on?

Thank you everyone. I know I'm just being silly. I'm sure everything will be fine. This guy seems really nice and understanding. Luckily he seems completely different from my ex.
