We caught up with Scott for this week’s #WhatTheHellHappened. Why did Scott ask for our help in the first place? Well, he had just moved across the country to Oregon and found dating to be really hard in this new place … especially because he’s on the shy side. My mom’s advice? “Get over it. Sign up for every dating site in Oregon. Oregon Trail singles, whatever!” I semi-agreed with her about not being shy and using dating apps, but not that bluntly.
So, #WhatTheHellHappened? Here’s a refresher on Scott’s original story, and an update from him below!
“I made a huge change in my life two years ago. I moved from New York to Oregon. In doing so, I got a fresh start but, it’s a little too fresh. I have a couple of friends who I knew before moving but, I haven’t made many more. Dating is also quite hard for me. It doesn’t help either that my mom has been begging me for grandchildren. I have always been incredibly shy and very much an introvert. Any advice on how to get comfortable meeting people and getting over the shyness?” – Scott
So, #WhatTheHellHappened to him?
A few days after you gave me the advice, I tried hard not to let my shyness get the best of me and I signed up for a dating app that I haven’t tried. Not long into that, I met someone and we had our first date. Things went so well that I asked her out and she said yes! Fast forward two years and we are still together! We celebrated our two year anniversary in the beginning of the month. We also moved in together this year. There’s discussion of marriage in the future which has me nervous but, happy. I have to say that not letting shyness get the best of me has really made me happy. Thank you for the wonderful advice as I couldn’t see my life without her.
@KateFriedmanSiegel: Oh wow!!! I’m so incredibly happy for you! Happy anniversary!!! What a wonderful update!! Thank you so much for sharing your story; I wish you guys all the happiness in the world!
