I'm the biggest catch of them all

{ Soucre }

Since losing weight, working on my fitness, and generally just working on being healthier; a crazy thing has happened. I've become more confident. Obviously I still have self doubts, and I'm not 100% confident yet - but I'm getting there. I had a discussion with my roommate, Amanda, last night about this - we both agreed that the difference in my personality, from six months ago to now, is crazy! With this new-found confidence, I have been putting myself out there more and more: in friendships, at work, and dating.

Which brings me to the point of today's post...

First dates can be awkward.

Obviously, it all depends on the people... don't get me wrong - dating is fun, but the first date or two with someone new can be extremely awkward, or maybe that's just me. I digress.

I've decided to make this list, because I clearly have no shame at this point. So today, I'm going to give you:
A few reasons that you shouldn't feel bad about your awkward first dates.

Disclaimer: I still had a nice time with this guy, and saw him a few times... but these are just examples on how to do a first date wrong.

    I'm more clumsy than you..
    Obviously this one shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who has been around my blog for a hot minute. I tripped, and almost wiped out, within 5 minutes of meeting him. Throughout the course of the date, I tripped three times. Yep. That happened.

    I ask inappropriate questions..
    This one is going to offend my mom for sure (and any other family member who reads this).
    I may, or may not, have asked him if he watched porn. I don't honestly remember how this came up, but we both laughed really hard. I'll spare you his answer to this inappropriate question.

    I can cause physical harm..
    Accidentally, of course. When he went in for a kiss, I completely smashed my forehead into his forehead, and somehow injured my nose in the process. I'm a woman of many talents.

    I introduce him to my 'family'..
    This one was a complete accident. He ended up walking me home and my landlord (and family) were all outside, and Amanda was home. So he quickly met everyone. I'm not a fan of overwhelming people on the first date, so this isn't something that I suggest. He was really nice about it though.

    I'm a slight 'over-sharer'..
    To be fair, I only 'over-shared' when I was asked questions. I should have shut up, and in my head I can hear myself saying 'Shut up, Faith' but I still keep talking. I won't go into details on this, but I promise that it was too far. If you really want to know.. ask. I'll probably tell you.

Feel free to use this list to make you feel better about yourself next time you have a rough date, or if you feel like you did something stupid/awkward. I did at least 5 awkward/stupid things, and this is just with one guy.

Well, good for you for being more confident! And I guess you at least have some great stories, now?

I can relate to almost all of these! I'm glad to hear you're gaining confidence, way to go and keep it up!
PS I really hoped I fixed my no reply problem!

first dates can definitely be pretty awkward, but it's good to remember that the other person is nervous too. at least that's what I like to think :)
