“What if she doesn’t like me?”
I asked Jillboard on Tumblr for advice leading up to the (/non)date. She gave an excellent answer here.
But I hate that she titled it “What if she doesn’t like me?”
I mean, I guess that was the first example question that I gave. But my anxiety was coming from so many different places that it felt almost unfair (by no fault of Jill’s) that that was the title. Perhaps it was the way I phrased the question. I wasn’t too concerned about this girl not liking me. I felt like our (/non)date was more for me to figure myself out.
Although she did address my real question, which was “how do you stop overthinking?”, she didn’t provide an answer that I could work with. Moving forward, this is something I’ll need to learn for myself.
