How do I stop

Being so uptight and self conscious??

Help me MN!

So - been single a long time but been messaging for a while with a guy from OLD. He's much more open about sex than I am, keen on sexting etc and I have NO idea how to properly engage with that blush

Also I've always been a bit naive/retrained/uptight/prudish (delete as appropriate!) about sex in general, I get so self conscious and self critical.

How do I let go a bit and just go with it without worrying about what is wobbling everywhere?

Do you really want to get into sexting when you haven't even met him. I would be worried if the conversation is sex before even meeting...but then I haven't done OLD

If you are uptight, well getting to k ow each other well first and you can then work on becoming more relaxed and adventurous.

For gods sake don't send him compromising pics!

Oh no chance of sending photos no fear smile

We've been in contact for ages, just haven't met yet for various reasons, distance being one of them

From my experience of OLD. The distance thing can be a major issue.

Pluck up your courage, arrange a social meet half way and see how it goes.

I dated quite a few women before I found the right one. I’d get on really well online and when we met one of us wouldn’t feel it (mostly them).

You have to meet or its not going to work out
