I've never experienced this before. I haven't been on a date in probably 7 months or so. The last one ended in the guy not returning my text the next day. I was SUPER nervous and excited to meet him. Most of my other dates FLOPPED as well. The guys turned out to be players or crazies. Dates that have gone good in the past have usually turned into relationships.
But, for once in my life, I'm not excited for this first date like I used to be. He's kind, loving, thoughtful, persistent, etc. Pretty much EVERYTHING I'm looking for that's hard to find, but what makes me skeptical is that he only had one photo on his dating profile (I'm afraid he won't be attractive to me) and he has acted SUPER giddy, counting down the days to our date, which just doesn't sound right. When he talks about not being able to wait to see me... I don't know what to say because I don't feel that way. This is a FIRST DATE.
I know that I've gotten a lot stronger while in therapy the last 6 months, but I just don't understand why I'm not nervous/excited like I used to be? Is it because I actually value myself now, so I'm not worried about impressing him? Is it because I don't know how to act toward a man that treats me right?
I'm trying to give him a chance and I'm going tomorrow. But, him being all giddy and excited makes me feel bad for not feeling the same.
