This guy that I thought I was going to have a long term relationship with and whom I thought was the first person I loved/was in love with broke up with me nearly a month ago on Christmas Eve. The break up did cause some emotional damage because through out our relationship many people said he was emotionally abusing me since he would call me names, tear down my self esteem by calling me as if I were a dog and he never trusted me when I never gave him a reason not to. One of my friends who I haven't met but we have talked for over a year wants to take me out on a date. I don't know if I like this guy or not since we haven't ever met or anything, but I feel kind of weird knowing this is my first date since the break up. What should I do to calm my nerves so to speak? Should I let this guy know what's going through my head?

I think it is best to keep quiet about it to this guy you are going to potentially go on a date with. If you want to get your feelings out, vent to one of your close girl friends. I know it iis weird out first, trust me, I have gone through the same thing. Your break up is still ripe so if you still have feelings with your ex, I don't blame you.. it is normal. I think you should definitely go on a date with this guy, I bet he will treat you nicer than your ex boyfriend. The best way to calm your nerves is to go on a nice walk or have a cup of tea. Don't stay jumbled up in your house, it just makes things worse.2
