I’m nervous dating a girl online who gave me shivers years ago
DEAR DEIDRE: I AM a little nervous after agreeing to go on a date.
It’s my first in a while and I don’t want to spoil it or embarrass myself.

No problem is too small, too big, or too embarrassing. Read our personal responses here.
A girl I met on a dating site three years ago got back in touch, completely out of the blue, a few months ago.
I liked her very much when we were originally texting each other, but she suddenly got cold with me.
I never understood why.
I am 29 years old and she is 27.
We always seem to get along well and messages circulate regularly.

Every problem receives a personal response, usually within 24 hours on weekdays.
We spoke to each other on the phone several times and talked about a first date.
I just want to be myself but I lack self-confidence.
DEIDRE SAYS: First dates can be nerve-racking, but it’s important to be yourself.
Remember, she will probably be just as nervous as you are.
This date is for both of you to find out if there is something more to explore when all the nervousness is gone. Good luck.
