Should I Arrange an Meeting with My “Blind Date”?

Okay…

Another strange post; kind of like a social situation, slash aspiration, slash query and I…

Alright, skip that. I won’t bore you any longer; I’ll move on to the main topic.

Nearly a month ago, I signed up to a social networking site; this site isn’t just a dating site. Apart from finding potential partners, this site can helpers users find new friends and buddies to hang out with. I won’t say the name of this site because a) I’m not advertising this website b) I like to keep some details private, and c) I’m not sure if the site will appreciate sharing their URL link and information on my blog. Anyway, I have been searching and meeting people for a chat – most of them have failed and there was one who wanted to contact me, via WhatsApp. I wasn’t a user, but I was really interested in contacting him. So, I asked my Dad to download the app and there we had it; I started contacting him! 🙂 I’ve been in contact with him for two weeks now. Most of our conversations have been sending and asking silly, and personal questions and once, we sent YouTube videos to each other. We’ve been trying to keep our conversations interesting and so far, it’s been going great. 🙂 However, I cannot guarantee if he will be my future love, but I may prove myself wrong; I may not. Until that moment happens, all I can do is wait, think and … wonder…

But, I have a certain thing to ask – despite being unsure if a person you’ll meet on a social networking site counts as a blind date – who is supposed to ask to meet up for a first meeting and how long it’ll take before that person says, ‘hey, let’s meet up’?  If it’s the girl, eek! If it’s the boy, hmm…

So, have any of you guys had experience of meeting someone online and how did you deal with the first meet-up? Also, what are your tips for managing anxiety on a meet up and/or first date? Please let me know in the comments section below – I would love to hear from you guys. 🙂 Gigi Xxxx

  1. Hi! I don’t know if this will help, but I’ll try my best. I’ve met up with friends from online before but not as a date. I didn’t meet with them until I had known them for years, though. I think after you talk to someone for a while, eventually one person will just suggest hanging out and it won’t be as nerve-wracking because you’ll already feel like you know the person – if that makes sense. Just be sure that both of you are comfortable with meeting up first. Don’t feel like you have to rush things.

    Since I had known my friends for a couple of years before meeting them, I wasn’t really nervous. It just felt like I was hanging out with them like I would with any of my other friends. Have you Skyped with him yet? That could be a good way to ease yourself into a first meeting. I think you’ll be fine to meet up in person once you get to know each other well enough online. I would suggest giving it a little more time before taking it to that step though. And, of course, be safe and take the necessary precautions when meeting up with someone from online for the first time. I would even suggest taking someone with you. I hope this helped you!

    1. Hiya, Virgio.

      Thank you so much for the advance; I really appreciate it – a lot. 😊 I haven’t Skyped him yet but I’m thinking of doing that. Won’t be sure how it goes but I hope it’ll turn out fine (fingers crossed).

      Kind regards,
