I have a friend date on Thursday!

Rate this Entry
As I've sort of mentioned, I'm struggling again a lot recently. A lot of things have just formed together, and I've been very, very low. I've really wanted an IRL friend (I mean, you guys are great. But I want someone to hang out with!) besides Rob. I love Rob, but I need a girlfriend!

So, about a week before I moved to PA, I joined this site that's just for women to make platonic friendships. I recently started talking to this girl, and we have a lot in common, and she invited me out to dinner this week. If all things go well, I think we mentioned going to see Catching Fire together as well!

I'm really excited and nervous. I haven't had girl time with a friend since June...and that was with my cousin. I really haven't hung out with a friend since Missouri. So, that's five months. And like, it feels so much like a date. I want to wear a nice outfit, and I want to make sure I say interesting and funny things, and not make an idiot of myself...it's stressful!

For people who have had friend dates with people they don't know super well, what did you do to make it work? I mean, I understand that to some degree we'll either hit it off or we won't (although our messages and texts seem to imply that we will!). Any advice?

    I don't have any useful advice for you. I just thought I'd mention how hard it is to not make the rather large number of jokes this paragraph allows for.

    This reminds me of the Kieth Hernandez episode of Sienfeld. Anyway, just relax. You mad ea new friend! Just enjoy yourself and see where it goes.

    ahahaha the keith hernandez episode

    Girl dates are easy. If you've already spoken online and have some things in common, bring them up again so you can talk about them more in-depth. Once you get a conversational ball rolling, it'll be great.

    I wouldn't know about dating troubles, because I'm an extremely likeable and interesting person.

    Maybe you should try to act like me?

    If I want to keep a friend around I just bust my scrotum out, so your technique could work.

    You do have an unusually beautiful scrotum, though, Sephex.

    Lol you'll be fine, deary!

    My advice? Do a couple of shots to get rid of the jitters! I've never like went out on a limb to meet a potential friend via the webz...

    oh wait I lied. I did one time. Back in high school. It turned out super awkward, but yeah. No harm, no foul.

    If it doesn't work out, don't let it get you down. Just be your normal awesome self, dress in what you feel most comfortable in, and let things progress on their own.

    If you're anything like me, you'll be able to tell pretty quickly whether or not this is a friendship you'd like to keep.

    I think we'll probably have a jolly time. We've been texting and have plenty enough to talk about.

    Eat food. The more you eat, the less you have to talk. Just remember to nod.
