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
