Today, I went to lunch with a great group of dynamic and friendly ladies.
I admit that I get anxious about it. New faces, possibility of crowds, revealing myself, all these things have the tendency to freak me out. I sometimes debate up until the last minute about whether or not I should go, if I should treat myself to lunch, if I will fit in with these gals who are funny, stylish and interesting.
I have met some fascinating women there and continue to enjoy their company, both on Twitter and in person. I’ve never had many female friends, and often find myself wishing for a little estrogen in my day and this is a perfect way to incorporate some girly time while enjoying some wonderful food.

I get anxious too. It’s definitely out of my comfort zone but I like putting faces to names and having a really conversations. Plus everyone is super friendly. I’ve enjoyed the last 2 I’ve been to and plan to keep coming. Hope to see you at the next one!
