I'd been messaging this guy every day for about a month and a half and felt like I really clicked with him and enjoyed talking to him a lot and found it easy to say anything to him. He seemed really keen to meet up. We met up for the first time on friday it was pleasant enough but I was feeling so nearvous (I haven't been on a date with someone since my last relationship) I didn't feel like I was being myself at all and wasn't present and could tell he felt awkward. I did like him though and despite that i'd give it another chance and see what happened.
He bought me a drink and said he'd probablu message me and hugged me goodbye and said he'd enjoyed it don't know if it was just out of politeness though. I sent him a message the next day saying thanks and that I enjoyed it but was feeling really shy at the time. He hasn't responded so I guess that's my answer. Wish I could just say i'd like to give it another go despite the awkwardness as I take a while to open up to people.
Awkward first date any way to get over that?
