    Well i have been ever since my best friend invited me to his girlfriends party at her house this saturday.

    Heres the deal:

    -awhile back he told me that his gf had someone she wanted me to meet.

    -her party consists of 5 guys(me, my friend, and some of his band), and his gf's friends, which i hear are all girls.

    -one of my friends band members(who is also a good friend of mine) told me that it seems to him like this is a big hook up fest.

    -he also told me that this girl she wants me to meet likes the funny, awkward, nerdy types(right down my alley), and aparantly, they've been talking about me.


    Conclusion - im nervous as hell about meeting her, and the feeling isnt going away, and ive got 3 more days until then. I feel like im going to be a nervous wreck before then.

    So has anyone got any advice? Has anyone had a similar situation?

    A similar situation, like a date? They're pretty easy. Just be yourself.

    Kind of. The first time I met my girlfriend in person I was a bit nervous, but we had talked extensively online for about a year before we met.

    As you haven't met her and don't know very much about her, I wouldn't get too worked up over it. For all you know she could look like Ernest Borgnine with long hair and have the personality of a potted plant. As honestgabe said be yourself. Better to find out now if she likes the real you than later, cheaper too.

    A blind "hook-up?"

    Those are usually recipes for disappointment.

    Dude make sure you take protection and a paper bag. You never know what might happen.

    Dont worry. Whatever you do or say wont make any difference. Females are never interested.

    Then again, this is just my life experience.

    Asocial Spekkio says: don't go to the party. Stay at home and play with your Transformers. You'll probably have more fun. And your Transformers understand you. She doesn't and she won't. She probably likes My Little Pony toys anyway. And that's just trouble.

    Like has been said, be yourself. And don't try too hard, girls can spot that from a mile away!

    If a girl doesn't like you for who you really are, she's not right for you.

    Why are you nervous? It is just a girl. Chances are that she will just as nervous as you and it is one night. If it sucks then bail.

    I know it's very cliche but just be yourself, man! If she don't like the real you then there's no chance you can get her even if you tried. Just don't expose your ugly habits for everyone to see and you should be ok.

    Don't treat women as mysterious objects. Treat her like a person, like any other regular person. Act casual, act as cool as you can (what works for you. Don't pose.) Yes, be yourself, but be accessible. Don't lock yourself off and make her think you're uninterested, or overly eccentric.

    Also, if you don't like her, be polite, have a good time with your friends, and if nothing else, you've made a new friend. At least someone new to talk to, etc.

    You never know, she might not be perfect, but she might fit you like a glove. It's happened before in life.

    Just hope that she fits better than an O.J glove if it works out.

    My advice to you is that you need to grow a pair and stop whining.

    Seriously. My social life in the past year has gone through the roof. I've always been a confident person, but I basically began applying an over-confident approach to my social life, and believe me, the results are there.

    See, here's the thing. You go into it thinking you're the shit. No one's hooking you up with her. They're hooking HER up with YOU. She should be so lucky. Be cocky. Be arrogant. Have faith in your self so much so that you can relax, not even think about it, and have a good time.

    If she's hot and it works, awesome. If not, then at least you got out of the house for once.
