How many times did I take people to get upto the door and actually walk in and not past, I’m very much at the keep on walking stage at the moment, I dread to think if there’s security cameras on the door people will be like, here he comes again ha
I just happened to time my walk up to the front at a point where Scotswood Rd had no cars on it and nobody else walking around. My first time I was definitely a bit nervous.
That being said, just go for it. You’re over-thinking it. I’ve seen people walking in and out of all kinds of places and pay them no thought, nobody will care who you are or what you’re doing. Take a breath and just walk in – you’ll be incredibly glad you did once the door’s shut and you’re inside.
Any time I’ve gone to a sauna over the years I’ve always had that heart in mouth nervousness and the little voice saying “what are you doing?” but more so excited anticipation of what may happen. Don’t think I ever did walk pasts but in my early days I’d be constantly looking around to see if I could spot someone I know. It’s silly as, unless they’re gay (or the sign says gay sauna), most people would walk/drive past and not even know what these places are.
