I am totally freaking out. Tim and I have been dating for almost a month and I’m going to be meeting his friend Dana tomorrow. He makes her sound like some sort freaking Lara Croft/Betty Crocker hybrid.
“Dana’s so smart. Dana’s so funny. Dana’s superhuman. Blah blah blah.” *facepalm* How am i suppose to compete with that?!? Okay, so he didn’t actually say superhuman, but that’s what I hear every time he talks about her. I know she’s married and older than him and she’s “like his sister”, but this is more terrifying than meeting his parents!
Is he really into her? Are they having an affair? Will she approve of me? Do I care? Does he care? Oh gawd, what if he cares?!? I’m going to hyperventilate….
Is she pretty? What if she’s pretty? Smart and pretty and he adores her? Does he expect me to be like her? Is he looking for a girl like her? Am I like her? Why can’t I find the freaking paper bags?!?!? Is that my hair?! Why is may hair falling out? I’m going to be bald before I even meet her! Do I have a hat? Is it a cool enough hat? Does Dana wear hats? I bet her hats are better than my hats!
Oh man. I have got to get some sleep. I’m going to be able to pack for Europe in the bags under my eyes tomorrow.
I bet Dana doesn’t have bags under her eyes…
the next night…
So I met Dana tonight. She seemed nice.
guys, if you have a close girlfriend who is truly “like your sister”, do not talk about her too much to the girl your dating. for the love of God, don’t do this. not only will you completely freak your girl out, you will make it hard for your friend to break the ice.
and under no circumstances what-so-ever should you compare your girl to your friend. if she’s confiding in you about a problem she’s having, don’t tell her what your “Dana” would do. girls do not want to be in competition with anyone, let alone someone you’re close to who she’s never met, no matter how platonic the relationship.
think before you gush.
guys, do you have a close girl friend that you hang with?
girls, have you ever been nervous to meet one of your boyfriend’s female friends because he talked about her too much?
