A bit of backstory: I went on my first date ever a couple of weeks ago at age 22, two months from turning 23. It went pretty well (her cousin told me she had fun) and she wanted to go out again, but unfortunately all plans had to be put on hiatus for a couple of weeks because she had to leave town. Well, she's back in town and I'd like to call and ask her out again, but I'm overthinking it as I usually do. Before the first date, I peppered my friends with questions - where do I take her? What should I wear? How early should I pick her up? Thankfully, I was relaxed during the date, but immediately after I started thinking about any mistakes I had made. Now I'm starting to worry about the same things, even though I know it's not rational. So, how do you guys cope? Is this something that will go away with experience? I had to down a beer before I called her the first time, but I'm sure that's not the best option.
