So yesterday was our first 'date', it wasn't like a romantic date, she just came over here for, what turned into many hours.
I was SO nervous up until Thursday night when work called and said I didn't have to work Friday, so I had the whole day to prepare and relax, which was awesome. Of course the last half hour (she was to arrive at 4) I was like, what the FUCK are we going to do? I had rented The Strangers earlier in the day (her suggestion, how cool) but I mean, that's not exactly a days worth of activities. So I went online looking for first date activities/questions and found some stuff. But she showed up at 4 and I gave her a tour and then we took my dog on the walk. Suffice it say, she was here till 12am and the time flew by and it was great.
We chatted, I played guitar, she sang some stuff, we made dinner, watched a movie, etc. All a blast.
So thanks Laura for the advice, I have not gone ahead with it since I've been a-ok, but I think I will mention it down the line, though now in a less panicky manner. However, we are to do something on Monday, at her house. Yikes! Well, I'll be seeing my therapist earlier in the day (coincidentally not FOR this event) and hopefully I'll be driving our new car by then which should be good. And the burden of hosting will be on her! Hurray. I guess we'll see how things go when I'm out of my comfort zone.
Also, I have 26 more hours of work before the store closes. And those shifts are spread out over the next month and a half, so it's kind of sporadic. Oh well.
