I am quite worried I might get depressive or psychotic episode during my date,it would be really awful and embarrassing,in 5 hrs time I hope it doesn’t happen
Don’t worry, if you have some prescribed benzos, I would take a low dose. Just be yourself and try to take it easy, be casual and make small talk - talk about things like the weather, celebrities and movies, talk about general popular subjects - keep it simple, but interesting. Do not try to over impress her - don’t go overboard, and play it rather cool - Good luck to you and try to have a good time, go with the flow
you will be fine , take some deep breaths, lavender oil on your collar is soothing.
remember your date will be nervous too.
I like dating . . . May you have fun!
Don’t care for it myself.
I have not dated in 25 years, good luck anyway.
There is no other way to conquer it than willingly expose yourself to whatever bothers you…tipsy helps a little. Otherwise, anxiety controls but things are so much harder dealing with the schizo symptoms and social problem, stigma, being on nutty stalker radar…Cannot beat yourself up for making a decision to just be happy with whatever…
It’s ok,I am bringing a normal mood and hope I will go with the flow as @wave suggested
Thank you guys for advice,I will try not to be too anxious and talk more than usual but not forcibly,1hr more to go,excited!
I am back guys,everything was fine,we talked laughed but I seem shy as usual,but everything was fine,thank you guys for comfort and advice
Great! Sounds like you handled the anxiety quite well.
Glad it all worked out… and glad you had a nice time.
Thx @SurprisedJ,it was a good time,i was a little nervous but the date went fine and i hope i can go for more date to increase my chance of having a GF
