ok, i'm new, and i am stumped. I finally have moved to a nice city where i might actually have a chance at finding a guy, and it's been So Long (+8 years) since i had an actual date i have no idea what to do. (small rural towns do not have many avid book readers with front teeth, two things on which i am unwilling to compromise on. girl's gotta have standards.)
a friend fixed me up with someone and it was horridly painful. we went out and i couldn't say anything, it was hugely awkward, like being back in junior high all over again. This is very unusual--normally i don't care what anyone thinks, since i'm pretty comfy the way i am.
Is total regression normal? or am i just missing something? i didn't have any trouble at all dating in college and grad school--help! what did i forget??
