Okay so I am 26 years old and I have not been on a date in a little over 4 years. I have not gone out with someone since I left my ex boyfriend, the father of my child. I have not heard from him since we broke up. My son was 2.
I just couldn't be one of those moms who leaves her kid with a babysitter while they go out partying or going after new guy after new guy. Instead I went to school and got a good job and raised my son alone. We could not be happier. I come from a close family and my mother likes to have him some weekends while I have alone time at home. All I do is watch movies and relax.
I have lost a lot of weight since I left my old boyfriend and I still dress like a fat girl Sue me. I only dress nice for work since it's an office setting. I got asked out by this handsome guy who works in the same office building. He's about 10 years older than me. We decided to go to a nice restaurant.
I am so rusty. I have no idea how to date, how to act or anything. I am extremely nervous and I am thinking of backing out. I don't know how to be happy in love. I have been on my own for a long time and I liked it that way. I have been asked out numerous times but I always made an excuse. To tell you the truth I have always had a crush on this older gentleman but I never thought he would like me. I'm an assistant to someone who is roughly his age and I thought he would think of me as some kid.
Okay now that I'm typing this I'm thinking about just going. I do want to go out with him but I guess I'm just scared.
Anyone have any dating advice or a few pointers? thanks.Answer Question
