    Okay so I changed schools last year so it's been a while since I last saw my friends from there. One of my my old friends and I have agreed to meet up for coffee today but I'm nervous that I will be awkward be we haven't spoken in so long. Idek what I'm supposed to say.

    I'm also meeting another friend next week and I'm nervous about that. I'm really bad in social situations especially one-on-one.

    Please help like what should I even say AND WHY AM I SO AWKWARD OMG. Normal people don't panic about having to talk to their friends :/

    If you are able to contact your old friends (before you meet) and tell him/her what you wrote in your OP I'm sure they'll understand but don't imply that you want to call off the meeting, instead say that although you're nervous, you're looking forward to it

    If this is a friend you trust, you have nothing to hide. Showing your vulnerability to someone you trust can only strengthen that friendship

    I have the same problem, always nervous and having no idea how to start conversations with old friends This is my lifehack: talk about something funny from the past, you'll start laughing and everything is gonna be fine
