I've got a date!

Eeeekkkk...I have been divorced just a little over 4 years. I was married almost 30 years and my kids were grown. It was the hardest thing ever, and I took my time to get to know ME again! It was more than a year when I had my first date...and it was only one date with that guy. Since then, I have only dated a couple of guys (just one date each) and then dated one guy for several months. I have to say that I am pretty picky and have expectations because I was in a very controlling marriage and I will NOT go through that again. I know I am worth the wait and I deserve to be treating nicely! Anyway....It's been over a year since I have had a date...and I have one tonight... we've been talking for a week since a friend introduced us, and we are meeting at a restaurant since he is coming from out of town. Anyway, I can't believe I am this nervous!!!!! I could throw up!!! I have never felt like before a date....ever! Any advice???

Have you met him before, or is it going to be the first time?
No advice other than just be yourself. I'm sure he is nervous too. Have a great time!

No, we were "introduced" by a friend asking me if I would be interested in meeting her relative. She asked him the same. We became friends on FB and we have talked on the phone for a week. His wife passed away four years ago, and he has dated only a few times, as well.

Iíll be thinking of you. You can borrow my mantra, ďWhatís the worst thing that could happen?Ē Your wonderful fallback is that you like and value yourself now. So have fun and only care about having fun.

Have a great time! Look at this way - even if the date is a dud, you still had a nice dinner!

It is great that you have a date

Not so great that you feel sick from nerves. I suggest you eat light and don't have any alcohol. Hopefully you will calm down after the two of you start talking. I hope you have a great first date with this person.

Thank you all so much! I had a great time! The dinner was nice and there was never a lull in the conversation! He is a really nice and considerate man! He met me at the restaurant, and handed me a single red rose. So sweet. He is 8 years older than me, but age doesn't matter....it's just that my ex was 8 years older than me also, and always treated me like he knew everything, and I knew nothing....just a bad taste in my mouth. Anyway, even if nothing becomes of this, I know I have made a nice friend!
