Never been set up with anyone. how do I make the initial texting less awkward? Once I get to the actual date I'm sure I'll be fine, but hoping to get there without coming off as boring

hmm... I personally wouldn't chat too much prior to the first date. Probably just few quick friendly texts to confirm the details and say you are looking forward to it.

Met my now husband via a blind date set up! Definitely text beforehand to introduce yourself, but don’t let yourselves quickly fall into a comfortable text-based dialogue; it’ll take away from the whole purpose of being set up to meet in person. Good luck!!!

I like what the two above said. just confirm details for the meet up and see where it goes. the nice thing about mutual friends is that you have a launchpad for the convo
