First date nerves

Obviously first date nerves are totally normal.

But maybe someone could give me some nice advice to sort of - calm me down before it?

This is the first real date I've had since my anx started about 2 years ago, so maybe I'm a bit out of practise.

Cheers, Kieran

Re: First date nerves

Hi Kieran,

Good luck with your date, its really brave of you!

Show lots of interest in the other person and ask questions, im not sure how well you know your date but note a few things down that you would like to know about them (dont take the notes! haha). But it will help your memory if you read over them before you go incase ya brain goes blank! which can happen to me!

Good topics are family, interests, pets, music, film you catch my drift. If you show interest in your date then it makes them feel special! Go with the intension of making them feel good even if you are a bag of nerves!

Oh yes smile lots, but dont look manic lol and laugh at their jokes.

Where are you going for your date?

Verity
