    Hey people!
    In a few weeks time i'm going to visit my mate at uni, and basically have a good night out.
    At the moment i'm single, and the mate who i'm going to visit is planning to set me up with a female friend of his. She's single as well, and he thinks we would be good together - i've looked at some photos of her on fb, and like what I see!!

    Problem is i'm kind of a bit nervous about the whole thing if you can see where i'm coming from?
    Has anyone else been in a similar situation? Just wandering how to react - my mate is going to try and portray me to her in a good light, and its just how to follow it up when i'm there!

    Advice much appreciated!

    Thanks a lot.

    Probably heard this a million times but just be YOU if she likes YOU then great! If she doesent, well nevermind, go and find someone who does.

    oh, and make sure you enjoy the time you have meeting her. Worrying is a waste of time...trust me...ive worried enough for two lifetimes already and learnt my lesson.

    Omg, good luck!
    I'm in a similar predicament - I'm off to see one of my best mates in a couple of weeks, and he wants to set me up with a dude who he says is 'a realy lovely guy'
    I'm not that nervous though, simply because I'm not expecting anything to occur; it would be lovely if there was something between us I guess, but if not, then it's OK - we're young after all, and will meet many many new people in the next few years. Because of this, it's rather unlikely that we'll still be being set up by our dear well-meaning friends in a few years time =]
    Anyway, I'd say just enjoy the set up, but there's no need to try and force something out of it or expect anything to come of it!

    I reckon the best thing to do in this kinda situation is act like you dont wanna be hooked up and use that to break the ice between you two, saing things like "I honestly dunno why >friend's name< is trying o hook us up!"
    that way you guys have to team up against the person/people that wanna hook you up. once you two are a team, you make conversation, play your cards right and ur in there matey.

    Don't worry about it, the nervousness will wear out once you finally meet. Don't let it keep you all silent and awkward, try to come across as engaging and sociable.

    Just be yourself, never try to be what you think other people want you to be. Act who you are and she will decide if she likes you or not.

    He will portray you in a good light however you need to show if that good light exists, she will be the judge of that. Course too nice...for girls is saying...trying to hard.
