How to go from Tinder to meeting up in person?

After spending almost a year in lockdown I downloaded Tinder in an effort to meet someone, I matched with a good looking girl and we have been talking for a few weeks now and everything seems to be going well.

We have agreed we will meet up once restrictions are loosened, the only issue is I am nervous about meeting with someone I have met online. I have never done it before and I just want to know how to get past the awkward stage where I have gone from chatting through a screen to chatting in person.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Always meet in a public place and go in with the intention of enjoying yourself. Use this technique instead of putting pressure on yourself.

Lucky you got to the talking stage and arranging to meet up.

I must have deleted/redownloaded Tinder 10 times and barely get matches or any chat rip

No offense but this isn't about you

To the OP, things will be awkward initially, but assuming you got semi-close with the person you're meeting, things'll be less awkward. As stitch said, go somewhere public in case it's a dangerous person, and talk about the topics you usually speak about via text. Avoid super controversial stuff tho ofc

just go and have fun. if you don't like them or don't get on you never have to see them again. just make sure you do something that is chilled like a walk or some drinks, grab some takeaway food and nothing that is going to put too much pressure on anything. remember to not put the person on a pedestal because you have just as much to offer as them.
