It’s really easy to get suuuuper pumped about someone and then act like a total weirdo because you’re nervous. I realized a few years into the game that the guys who liked me the most were the ones I was less intimidated by. When I was with someone I had built up in my head, I got nervous and wouldn’t let my best side show, or I’d act how I thought they wanted me to. It’s human to put on a front or try hard to be cool when you overthink things. Always prioritize safety and have someone meet you in public, not at home, but bring the people to you!
