Expect to mess up: It is normal to mess up once you meet someone you really like. You are nervous, kind of rusty and feel uneasy with this new dating again process. The fear of getting hurt might manifest itself on different occasions and it is possible that the guy will be confused and overwhelmed by you. I remember when I met my now new husband I was really afraid of letting go and truly allowing myself to fall for him. I kept on resisting and holding back and every time it got more serious I ran away. Luckily he loved me enough to stick around and wait till I was finally ready, but I know that I messed up several times. The best thing you can do, is be patient with yourself and accept that you will make mistakes, then try and be open and honest at the right time and learn how to communicate your fears and feelings without making the guy run for the hills.
