How was it meeting someone for the first time from a dating site and it literally being the first time it had been from someone off the dating sites?
Most Helpful Girl
I've only met one person from online, but I am so glad that I did. We're still seeing each other :)
I remember being SO NERVOUS beforehand. I think most girls' worst online dating fear is meeting someone crazy, but mine was that he wouldn't find me as attractive in person, or that I would weird him out with my awkwardness/shyness. My insecurities were all over the place.
When he picked me up, he got out of his car and gave me a friendly smile/greeting/hug, and then opened the passenger door for me. Swoon. He was completely normal and looked just like his pictures. Bought me dinner. Watched a movie and cuddled at his place. Dropped me off and kissed me goodnight. There were some awkward moments (I think anyone can expect that on a first date), but it wasn't bad-awkward, you know? It was just normal-awkward. It was obvious we were both into each other.
I think part of the reason why I had such a good experience is that I actually talked to him for a pretty long time (around 4-5 months) before agreeing / feeling ready to meet up. This let me get a good feel for his personality and intentions.1
