Dating : Today I had a first date that went amazing, but then it turned the other way. Would love any ideas or advice
So i moved to a new town about a week ago and i had my first date up here today. We met on bumble a few days ago- facetimed a few times and really hit it off so we went on a coffee date.
Today is actually her birthday and she had a busy day- but she made time for me. We got coffee- talked for a solid 1 1/2 hours and REALLY hit it off. She has anxiety but told me i made her really comfortable and she felt like she could be herself around me.
As i said she had a busy day, so after our date she had plans with friends. She apparently liked me so much that she invited me to hangout with her and her friends. I was free so i was happy to join.
We met up with them and it went great- hit it off with them as well. We took a 30 minute drive to a small town. When we got there things were still going great- we ordered food at a restaurant and then i excused myself to go to the bathroom. When i got back things had fairly obviously changed.
Her friends were still talking to me- but she had kinda shut down. She was sitting on her phone the majority of dinner. On the way home it was just as awkward- her friends were still talking to me as normal- but she didnt say anything.
I havent texted her since the date, as she was still with them and i didnt want to annoy her.
Its now night and im assuming shes back home. I really like her- so i want to text but i dont know what to say?
Should i ask what happened? Or maybe just keep it simple and say i had a nice time?
Any advice on what may have happened and what i should do would be appreciated.
Obviously it was a first date, so im not really too bothered if we stop talking- i did really like her though.
