Lately, I have been pretty apprehensive about meeting new people. It's kind of scary, right?! Especially if you have any sort of negative interaction with the new person you met, however, this time,I was so excited to meet someone new! And to be like, one of the first people to say howdy!
Koodge was super excited to meet her doggie, Penny, she's a chocolate lab. They got a long really well while we were just chatting. Which always makes me excited. Is this how people with kids make friends? "Yes, our kids get along well, we should hang!" lol.
I made sure to tell one of my friends who lives in the same building as M, that there was a new wife here, and she seemed really neat!
Anyway, I think the day I met her, husband and I found out that he was getting his PRK eye surgery the following week (you know, the army gives so much warning about everything...). So, we spent the weekend getting ready to spend 4 days up in Landstuhl, and took off the following Monday. Husband and I were away for almost 2 weeks, and I was sure that M had forgotten all about me.
A few days after we returned, I wanted to go out and run errands, but didn't want to go by myself. So I told husband that I was going to be outgoing and go knock on M's door and ask if she wanted to go! He was like, "okay wife...", basically, he didn't care cause he was napping.
Then my nerves started to set in, and I started shaking! I was so nervous! Omg. What am I doing?! I don't even have contact information for M, luckily... She told me which apartment she lived in... Is it creepy that I remember? Am I a STALKER?! What if she's not home? I should write a note... At least give her my contact information?? "Husband, is it stalker-y for me to leave a note?!" -- "No wife, that's how you meet people wife." Okay, I am just being super nervous.
I walked over to her building, walked up the too many flights of stairs, and knocked on her door... She was HOME! Omg. I am shaking. She opens the door, and asks me to come in because her dog Penny was too excited! lol.
"Here, I wrote this in case you weren't home, it has my contact info on it!" Goodness... I felt like a ding dong. I asked if she wanted to hang out, get coffee, and run errands.
She accepted. It was a relief. A successful mission completed by me! And now we walk our dogs together on a regular basis! :) Okay, it's been twice so far, but it's a good time!
Do you get super nervous trying to make new friends?
