I have been doing online dating for the past 4-5 years. I have made a couple of friends from it which was a bonus. I have been chatting to a guy for a few week now and are meeting this weekend. He had had really bad health over the last 3 month and because of this it makes him very tired fast because hes pushing himself a bit too much but is slowly getting back to full health. The thing is i do really really like this guy but im worried he wont like me as much as i like him. I feel im too much in his face at times when we chat. He has said hes too laid back at times. I know everyone will say be myself but thats hard when im actually a big bag of nerves for once. Hes very confident as im not. Im hoping for some advice as previous dates havent got far ( being myself but thats their loss lol ) but id like this one to have a future. I am hoping his laid back attitude wont mind the dithery nervous me and he wants a second date.

You need to learn to chill, OPJUST relax and try and go with the flow. It might be that in person YOU don’t like him as much as you thought you would.Dating is a process. A process of elimination. You meet someone, get to know them OVER time and then you BOTH figure out of you have enough in common, an attraction and perhaps mutual values and morals and hopes. And if you do, IT might work out. It might not.It’s ONLY been a few weeks of chatting OP. you REALLY don’t know him as well as you THINK you do.RELAX or you will push away someone who could potentially be a “keeper”.

You can’t have those kinds of expectations for a first date. It’s one thing to be hopeful, it’s quite another to try and force a particular outcome. You’re either going to click face to face or you’re not. Go on the date and hope for the best case scenario but prepare yourself to deal with the worst case scenario. Reality will probably be somewhere in the middle.
