Have butterflies in your stomach
It’s very hard for me to meet men, or people in general. I’m the opposite of my sister, she’s a social butterfly while I’m very shy and I prefer to spend time by myself. Anyway, my sister insisted I go on a date with a friend of hers from college and, I don’t know why, I accepted. This afternoon I started getting ready and I was so nervous, I had butterflies in my stomach. I got to the café and almost chickened out! I was about to leave but then I thought it’d be really rude so I walked in. Everything seemed fine at first, he was already there sitting at a table waiting for me. We sat and started talking. He seemed great until… until they brought the food. He kept talking, only this time with food in his mouth, which is one of my biggest pet peeves! I sheepishly suggested maybe he could finish eating and then we’d talk but he kept chewing with his mouth open. I was trying to not say anything, I tried to think about something else until I suddenly went: STOP CHEWING LIKE THAT! IT’S DISGUSTING! We never went on a second date but, hey, at least I didn’t have to watch his burger being chewed for the rest of that date!
