Why? Isn't it part of the entire experience? I wouldn't give up the butterflies (or the stupid words--mine or his) for anything :)
...what if you miss the greatest experience in your life... due to fear of the possibility of being hurt :)
I find the best way is to tell them and explain :) normally once you do that it goes :)
tell him that too? :) i think its best to out in the open with feelings and worries as you never know he may feel exactly the same! :)
I have had that feeling when I met someone I just knew was going to be important to me. Just power through as best you can I guess.
Feelings are unconscious thought complexes which have drawn on all available knowledge and so are important ways for your inner self to communicate with your conscious self. Always listen to feelings imho.
I see. Maybe write yourself a script to follow. Like a delaying tactic. Think about it beforehand and run through it in your mind and then says stuff like I am not looking to be in a relationship right now or something. Is nothing wrong with saying you are a person who likes to take their time and to get to know someone.
