    Sorry I don’t want to keep posting. So the last 2 days I’ve been talking to this boy that I knew years ago in primary school but haven’t seen or spoken to him for like 5 years. I like him but I don’t know how I would tell my mother that Im seeing someone because I don’t feel comfortable talking to her about that. Also I feel like he could do a lot better than me and I feel like he is taking the piss out of me so I would want to wait a bit to see if he is actually interested. Also I have social anxiety and I’m fine talking on Facebook but in person I would feel so awkward and would struggle to talk (especially as he is like the intimidating- streetwise boy if you get what I mean) he was nice enough when I used to know him though. Yesterday he asked if I want to meet up soon. I haven’t opened his message I can just see it because it’s on Facebook. What Can I say to show that I am interested but not ready to meet up? Thanks

    I know exactly how you feel... just tell him you'd like to but if you could facetime/ call first. This will let you see what he's really like and if you two 'click'. It
    also means that when and if you do meet in the future then you will know what to expect

    Thank you. I don’t like talking on the phone 😂 after a bit of time I can but do you think it’s acceptable to ask if we can just talk on Facebook for a bit? Also, even though I haven’t seen him for years, he used to be my BF when I was like 10 haha
