For the third date, we were a bit busy she so I invited her to go shopping for an hour. On the morning, she told me one of her friends wasn't feeling very well, so she changed plans and invited me to go along with two of her friends (including that friend not feeling too well) for some shopping at another place for two hours. To be honest I was really nervous at this idea, I just started to get to know her, and it felt like a test or something.
Anyway, met with her, quick peck on the lips, and then joined with her two (girl) friends. I don't think it showed too much, but I was a complete bundle of nerves! I smiled a lot, tried to ask a few questions, but did not really know what to say, not wanting to give a bad impression.
We ate lunch together, and they were chatting away like best friends. I did utter some words here and there, but I was sooo nervous to say something stupid/awkward so ended up mostly just smiling and listening.
Later while shopping, we split up briefly and I stayed with the girl I'm dating, and she made the remark that I wasn't talking much. I laughed, a bit embarrassed, told her to give it some time, telling her I wanted to make a good impression on her friends (and I know they have been talking about me). I'm afraid she's going to think less of me : she was very outspoken while I was extremely quiet, not my usual self. When parting ways, I gave her a quick peck on the lips while holding her waist in front of her friends, and exchanged the usual "nice meeting you" with her friends.
I'm going to ask her out on a 4th date this week, but I really feel like I blew my chances... What should I do if she invites me to hang out with her friends again next week? Decline? I'd prefer to focus on her rather having to worry about making friends with her friends yet... Well I have first to see if she will accept another date...
