I met a man on another, non-Catholic, dating site. We talked online a bit, met for coffee and now are scheduled to go to the movies tonight. This is my first date since my husband died in August 2011.
I don't feel any sparks at all, but he has said he's definitely interested in me. He keeps telling me how pretty I am. For some reason,. that makes me uncomfortable. It could be because I have never really considered myself pretty or maybe it's getting a compliment like that from someone who isn't my late husband?
We were supposed to go out last night but something came up. He was disappointed and I was relieved. I'm actually thinking of cancelling tonight.
Is it because I don't see a future for us (after such a short acquaintance and he isn't Catholic)? Could it be that I'm not ready yet? Should I go tonight and see how it goes? He wants to pick me up but I think I'm going to insist on meeting him. I'm very nervous about being alone in a car with him. I have no idea why. He seems perfectly pleasant.
Since I'm so anxious about this date, should I cancel or should I go through with it? Should I give it some time or tell him right away that I don't see us being anything more than friends, if that? HELP! Maybe I'm just nervous because this ismy first date in 35 years?
