Alright, so I've been actively on the dating scene the past month or so after taking some time after my last relationship.
I was out at a festival last night, drinks, awesome bands, etc. I was heading over to one of the tents and ran into a guy I went to high school with (we graduated 8 years ago). We went to a small high school, and had nothing in common back then and in fact argued quite often. He was the quirky type and I ran with the "popular crowd." I think he thought I was typical of that title.
I had run into him about 3 or so years ago, and thought WOW, he looks so good. The type that I really like but don't date. We has briefly chatted at that time and moved on. I had wished I had asked him out but never had the nerve and I think I still have a complex about how different we are - doesn't bother ME, but I feel like I'm not his "type." I used to have him on my Facebook and had seen some pictures of exes of his and they are NOTHING like me physically.
So when I ran into him yesterday, I said "okay I have to put this out there because I've been kicking myself for the last three years - would you wanna grab a drink some time?"
He said yea, for sure and pulled out his phone and got my number, then texted me right away so I'd have his. I told him how he blew me away when I saw him three years ago and I'd be so am at myself if I let him walk away again.
We both went off to find our own groups of friends.
Now I have his number, and I don't know how to play it!!?? I'm SO nervous, and TBH slightly insecure. I feel like I'm not his type and that maybe he was just being nice by doing that?
I was thinking of texting him today and saying like hey, good to see you, let me know if you're free this week to grab a drink/check out a show; that kind of thing. Or do I wait and let him do it..?! I know I'm completely over analyzing it, I'm just nervous!!
Help me please oh confident, secure curlies!
