Default Really worried about what other people think

Today me and this guy are going down to our local headshop and I'm incredibly anxious about it. I mean, what if he thinks I'm boring? Or what if I say something stupid and then it gets all awkward? Usually when I feel like this I cancel my plans and stay home but not today!

I used to hang out with him when we were in high school but that feels like forever ago now. He's really nice and has a lot of friends and I just want him to like me. ESPECIALLY since we have plans to go snowboarding together next weekend.

What can I do to calm my nerves?

Hi I feel the same way, in large crowds of people I always feel anxious and as if people are staring at me and I always end up cancelling plans with friends because I don't want to sit in a crowded restaurant.

My advice would be just be yourself! Is there anything that calms you? Before you go do some breathing exercises? You already know this guy from high school so you should feel at ease because he's not a complete stranger

Large crowds of people? No way. I went to the head shop with him and that was fine and then we hung out again after I got off work and we ended up meeting up with like 9 other people some of which I new and many that I didn't. I COULDN'T EVEN SPEAK! God it was so embarrassing. I left within 10 minutes.

The show I'm watching right now is called "Awkward." for a reason.

Do something to prompt him to talk first. It might help break the ice. Beside if you're going somewhere with him, he probably enjoys your company to not think you boring.
