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.

Risky business.

Don’t care for it myself.

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…
