Wedding Countdown Ticker

Saturday, January 17, 2009


I have been awake since the crack of dawn and have been jittery since getting up. Why, you ask. I have a date tonight, that's why.

His name is Mike. He is from Hamburg, PA (about 20mins west of me) and is a computer nerd. We met on one of the dating sites (chemistry). We have talked several times on the phone, have im'd and emailed for about 2.5 weeks. He is very polite, asked me out on a date formally (i.e. "I would like to ask you out on a date") not just suggest "meeting". He has a friendly face (I know, Mary Beth, so did Jeffrey Dahmer!). We are meeting at the mall at 5:30pm to ensure safety and plenty of people around. But I am nervous...

Here's the deal- It has been a long time since I have been on a date with someone I do not know better than myself. What if he doesn't get my sense of humor? What if I mumble or drool or cackle or talk with my mouth open? There are a lot of what if's.

Wish me luck. I will let you know how it all goes. And if I dissappear, Mary Beth and Helen, you have all the info the police need to go on the site and find him....

this is very exciting. Just try to be yourself. Don't have too high of expectations...that way you won't be dissapointed maybe??
Don't try to be anything other than YOU. If he does not like that, then he is not for you.
good luck!!!

Oh, good luck, good luck! I am so excited for you. How fun! I'm jittery nervous for you!

Relax and just be 'you'! After all, he asked 'you' out, so he already likes what he knows..

I hope you have a nice time.

I can totally understand how you would feel. If I ever were to re-enter the dating world, I would be LOST. Seriously. I would probably more easily learn Swahili than learn to data again.

But I'm so happy it went well - so exciting! :-)

(And I love the fact that he was formal and polite about asking you out.. I bet he's the kind of guy who treats his mother well, which is always a good indicator of a Good Man!)
