New relationship nerves...?


Hey everyone!

I’m just getting myself into a new relationship. I’ve known this guy (literally) since the day I was born- we have pictures of us meeting in the hospital. Growing up we weren’t “friends” but now we found an interest in one another and started seeing each other about 2-3 weeks ago. We went on a first date, and we’ve only spent a handful of nights apart since. My issue however is that when we are alone our conversations seem awkward and possibly even forced. I feel I can’t be silly or myself yet but I’m just worried if this awkwardness is normal? Or are we possibly just not a good fit. I’m sure it could be both, but I just wanted to see if anyone has had an awkward start to a relationship and had it flourish, and how you got out of the awkward stage!

-cheers! 💜
