    sit down......take a deep breath..count to 10....and RELAX....think about all of the things that you enjoy....and remember,he is probably nervous as well..go take a look in the mirror...the guy you see in the mirror is handsome,and well-built....you are going to do great on this date......think of it as the "big day"...like you are an athlete that has trained all year for the final showdown...you are pumped and ready....

    It's a date, not a job interview. You may click, you may not, but the worst thing that can happen is a dull evening. And even then, it still beats another night at home on the couch contributing to RJ threads on topics like "Why can't I ever find anyone who wants to date?"
    So why the nerves? Enjoy it for whatever it has to offer. And if it doesn't work out, if it's really disastrous, you can use the story as amusing conversation on your next date.

    In all honesty, a drink or two will help with the pre-date nerve jitters.

    Treat it like you're going out with one of the guys. That's always worked best for me. If you see it as a date... It's doomed for me usually from the get go unless you've been with each other a while.

    i start out at a coffee shop and if things goes well after that then i move on to dinner. i would do something different. why don't you two take a walk along the pier or go to the park. Go do something would require you to interact with each other with out actually having to manufacture a conversation
