Well, I get concerned that my voice will quaver and that I'll shake and stutter, because sometimes I am shy. I try to be assertive despite my shyness and take the initiative when being introduced, and put out my hand to shake the other guy's hand. One time I met a TV news anchor. I immediately asked him if I could shake his hand. I don't want to make him overconfident; or make anyone overconfident, for that matter, simply by expressing compliments, but I find it's a great technique for breaking the ice. I am also concerned that the other person is shy. There's nothing wrong with being shy. I know what it's like. But what if I were to say something and there is no answer in return? Well, meeting people can be a frightening experience, but I like people, I try to make new friends, and I get along very well with other writers and artistic people. Most of all, what I am concerned about when meeting someone new is being rejected. I value friends. I wish I had a boyfriend. I have both been rejected by friends and boyfriends in the past. Friends rejected me when we went off to college; suddenly they didn't have any time for me because they were studying all the time. And then they got married. And had children. Started a life of their own. Boyfriends rejected me because they said I was too emotionally fragile. So, I take this to heart and wonder if I could work on emotional strength. I get so lonely. That's why I joined this site. What I look for the most in another person, and I am both looking for a friend and a boyfriend, is a listening ear and a smiling face. I don't want to do all the talking, though. I know I should be a listening ear, too. And I should smile at people. Well, to wrap it up, the things I am most concerned about when meeting someone new are: my own shyness, the other person's shyness, and rejection. And I think that one ought not to be too sensitive about rejection, because it's all part of life. At this point in my life, I am actively seeking friends and hope to mingle just enough to find those golden relationships. Thank you. Have a great evening. BTW, I like painting, writing, reading, music, tv and movies, a little bit of exercise, journaling, talking on the telephone, getting to know people, and hanging out. I think a great relationship is give and take, both of us having a willingness to work and be diligent about our work. They say marriage takes work; well, it's true. We all have our own lot in life, and what makes a marriage survive is the attitude of, "We're in this for the long haul." If you have the attitude of, "Well, let's try and see how things work out," it's going to fail. Perseverance. Have a shared activity like religious services. The game of life, really, is perseverance and doing something constructive. Not everyone gets married. That's your choice. But everyone, everyone needs support to be healthy and happy. My advice? Have faith. Talk it out, with the right people. I do like having friends. I realize there are not many people active on this site, but perhaps someone, somewhere out there will read this. Thank you, and have a wonderful evening.
