I have a date in not too long and my nervousness has been taken over by the fear that I will be stood up. The last guy I met through a dating site did and it was awful. Now this one I am almost positive wouldn't, but I can't help but worry. He has assured me of it for a week now everyday that it will happen because he really wants to meet. I however am a nervous wreck especially while I wait for a confirmation text. And I know logically he is busy but this is how it went the other time. The guy just wouldn't answer my calls or texts and I thought maybe something happened to his phone and I drove an hour to meet him halfway to be stood up. Any advice to calm my frazzled nerves?

Take a deep breath Hold for 5 seconds. Now breath out completely like you are blowing out a candle. Put your favorite (relaxing or happy) music on. (A suggestion: Beautiful World by Adam Crossley). Sit down and enjoy the music. Instead of focussing on the bad thing that could happen. Imagine how the perfect date would go. Don't think about him not responding at the moment. Just sit there, enjoying the music and thinking about positive things.
That guy who stood you up was a jerk for not showing up. He could have AT LEAST texted you that he couldn't make it. You have to understand that if a guy doesn't show, that it IS NOT your fault! He is the one who did not show. You did everything right. I am not saying that this guy you are about to date isn't going to show (I really think that he will), but you have to understand that these things aren't your fault.
I hope this helped :)
