Sheriff Pre-date Anxiety

Image result for dating the sheriff

Fourteen days ago, I matched with a sheriff on Tinder.  A tallish, tattoo’d, family loving sheriff.  At least that’s what I think I know about this man.  I’ve done my homework and checked his references, and so far so good.  He texts me “Good morning pretty lady” when I wake, and “Sleep well pretty lady” when I crawl into bed each night.   In the digital world he seems great, but how will he translate in real life?  I will find out tonight.

I have a date with the sheriff, and I don’t know how to feel about it.  I’m sort of excited I think, but at the same time I feel hesitant.  He quit drinking a few months ago, so there won’t be a glass of wine to warm up the conversation.  He hasn’t told me, yet, why he quit drinking; he said he wants to wait until we meet in person.  Totally fair, but at the same time I’m not sure how I feel about this.  I also know that he is living in his travel trailer while his house is being rebuilt after a home fire.  I’m curious to find out if the fire has anything to do with his sobriety.  Questions, questions, so many questions.

I hate to admit this, but I wish we were meeting for a beer rather than dinner.  I worry my anxiety will get in the way of me being able to relax.  I can already feel myself getting fidgety, restless, and uncomfortable.  Should I tell him right off that I get anxious?  Being upfront immediately hasn’t worked well for me in the past.   However,  If I don’t tell him, I worry he will think my strange behaviour is my norm.  He did say he likes a little weird in his women, so maybe he will find me intriguing.  Maybe my anxiety will come off as essentric or mysterious.  I can only hope.

There’s always the chance that I won’t like him.  Although I have a feeling I will; he’s easy to talk to at least.  NOW the big question… what do I wear?

        Sheriffs can’t arrest. They just drive criminals from court to jail here

        I should post a pic of me with my two guns. Would that make me any more impressive? 😉

  2. You are probably already out (I just got home) but I hope you are having fun! And at least not too anxious! I’m sure if you just said you were nervous, that would be fine for an explanation. Everybody gets nervous about first dates. Agree with SG2 though – in the US we would call your Sheriff a Bailiff, or a Warrant Office or a Corrections Officer. Semantics. Can’t wait to hear all about it! My love life is so stale…

      It was not what I was hoping for…. he was nice, but I was not attracted to him. 😦

      1. Maybe a friend to hang with? Or not thinking that either. I just ask because I am lonely lately, and someone to hang with, hike with and who has the money to travel with me would be awesome.

        I think I will try and hang with him again but he’s shown a lot of interest and I don’t want to lead him on.

      3. Yeah that would be tough if it didn’t settle into a friendship on his end.
