Proposition jitters

Although I am a lot less shy than I used to be, I still get jitters whenever I am about to ask someone out. Really bad jitters sometimes. In fact usually. Couple of months ago I was gonna ask a girl out who was getting off work around a certain time, and so I was waiting for her to get off work to call her. So for the last half hour or so before hand I used this journal as a running record of what was going through my head. Jitters. They weren't particularly bad as my jitters go. I told evillinn about the entry before she had a chance to read it. Later, after she read it, she commented that if she had read that before she talked to me she would have been calling me to make sure I was okay.

So I have a girl I want to ask out, but I am getting serious jitters over it. No worries. I'll actually ask her out. But I wonder what steps other people take to get past the jitters. One of the things I learned in AA was to ask people who have done something before how they did it. And this is something I've never asked about, although it comes up again and again.

So I wonder how to get past them. And I wonder what I have to do so that I stop getting them or so they aren't so ... hmmm, I guess so they don't scare me so much.

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…
