The only reason I'm writing this is because I'm stalling. I absolutely hate first dates! I've been putting this off for about a week and everyday I come up with excuses why I can't make it. I've given excuses from I have a late meeting, to I'm working late, to I had to go somewhere with my boss and some other hopefully plausible lies. Now the weekend is here and we're meant to meet at 6pm and it's 6.10 and I'm still cowering on the sofa while my friend is berating me, telling me that I'm going to lose this guy just the same way I lost others; constantly posting them till they get tired and fashi me. I'm worried as well... He called at 4pm and I told him the mechanic has my car and it should be here by 6. So now I'm wondering if I should tell him the mechanic disappointed me, or if I should just go get dressed and brave it.
I just really really hate first dates. I worry about what to say, when to say it, would we hit it off? Would I hate him? What if we just don't connect? What if he asks questions I can't answer? What do I do if I find him boring? What if he's a poor conversationalist? Is it ok to leave thirty minutes after I get there?
Actually I already have a plan for that. If I go, the minute I get there I'll say I can only stay briefly because it's my friend's birthday. If it sucks then I'm out in thirty minutes. If it doesn't then I'll sit back and relax and tell him I can get to my friend's much later.
So I really should make up my mind and stop stalling. We've met just once but from talking to him over the phone he sounds like he's got a great personality and would be serious fun. He's good looking with an enviable job/career.... Ok, im'ma go get dressed and quit stalling.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend sweeties!
