There's a story, so please be patient and read it. Everyone probably knows my dillemma. I was dating a real nice girl for a year, she broke up with me. I was devastated. Had a couple flings in the fall, feelings for ex were so strong, and i was terribly depressed at christmas. Well, I think 06 is turning around for me. OK. Of all places, I met a girl through an online dating service. Flame away, I've never done this before, so it's new to me. A girl the same age as me (32), sent me a pm through the site, and we started talking through MSN and emails, and this past weeekend on the phone. I was supposed to make a trip to her town (about an hour) for NY Eve, but I ended up with a flu saturday morning. She's REALLY pretty, blonde, so funny, has a beautiful smile, sarcastic wit, etc. We've talked/chatted for HOURS each evening. She's been recently singled as well, 5-6 months, like my own 4-5 months. She was married to her highschool sweetheart, who, when she was 5 months pregnant, cheated on her, and she did'nt know, and he did it again afterwards. They separated, and a while after the separation, she started dating this guy who, a couple years later, ended up being a complete asshole, treating her like shit, and they broke up. Her daughter is now 6, and very smart. Her friends and parents are telling her that they haven't seen her smiling so much as she has been since we first started chatting, and I'm noticing myself that I'm smiling a lot more these past days too. Last night we were on msn with our cameras so we could see each other (G-rated, not cam-sex lol) and we chatted all night, and she was smiling the entire time...I was too. But we're both very nervous about our first date which will be this friday night. Terribly nervous. I"ve got butterflies in my stomach today. I don't recall this ever happening before a date. On the day of the date, I'd get a little nervous, and that's natural, but it's 3+ days away and my stomach is doing flip-flops. It does it just at the thought of her. Is it normal? What does this mean? I'd really like to get to know her a lot better, because she's so sweet, but I feel like I'm in highschool again, with these nerves!!
