Online dating meeting in real life
I would turn into this sweaty, stiff creature who couldn’t do anything but violently fold a cocktail straw into a sharp looking figurine. But everything changed when I realized that the better the conversation went, the more likely an in-person meeting would be suggested.“What are you doing this weekend, want to grab a drink? I could establish confidence offline and then attempt to live up to it in person.
Eventually, I would give up the Cali Surf Gurl QT persona and talk about my true self with ease. The key to expressing myself lay in a QWERTY keyboard and while my parents wished I’d go outside, it felt like I was.Offline, I was shy and soft, awkward and out of tune.I didn’t know what to do with my hands when I talked to people.I couldn’t speak loud enough for people to hear me and any time the attention was on me, I did whatever I could to deter it.I was so scared of being knocked down that couldn’t bear to show myself.
