I want to see if you're as good as you say you are. I did exactly what Bayard advised and messaged her on Instagram. Are you free on Sunday to hit the library with me?

A new place just opened up, and I've been looking for someone to check it out with me. Those with social anxiety struggle because they are in their head and second guess themselves.
