I'm going to a party

The gentleman I'm seeing - or should I say dating? Can a woman my age date or is that just for young people? - has invited me to a party at the home of someone he works with. A lot of his co-workers are going to be there, too. He told me it's a dinner party with cocktails beforehand and I'm so nervous because I don't think I'm all that good at small talk. Usually we spend time here or he takes me to a restaurant and I feel so comfortable with him. I don't want his friends to think I'm stupid or anything and I don't want to embarrass him by saying something dumb. This is the first time in a long time that I've gone to a party where I literally only know one person. Why did I say yes?!

Mom, you're awesome. You're not stupid, you're not dumb, and you always charm people at parties. Just be yourself and you'll be fine.

You really shouldn't worry about it so much. Best thing you can possibly do when you go to a party is to just go with the flow and be yourself, like Will said.

When you worry too much about it then you just drive yourself crazy and you end up all tight and nervous.

So just go and have fun.

All I got to say is we spent two days talking and you were how many miles away?
