    Nervous.

     The reason for this?   I'm meeting a guy, who i previously spoke about in another experience. Just me, him, the public and the town.  And I'm nervous  What if there's awkward silences? What do I say? Any helpful ideas to get me through this?

    A Lot..

    I am always nervous, when I walk into a shop. I am already scared of paying. Somehow this makes me very nervous, and I always end up with no voice at all. And that makes me cough a lot and that makes me even more nervous and anxious. Thanks Online-Shopping :D
