Internet dating first phone call
A first phone conversation with a woman you recently met can be a great actual first date where you laugh, tease each other, engage in a fun, sarcastic banter and then….
when you meet – you will feel much more comfortable with each other and chances are that the girl will already be interested in you before she even met you in person.
So keep your initial phone conversation short and to the point. Keep Safety in Mind Let’s face it, until you know someone, you don’t know them.
So it’s important to keep safety in mind when giving a date your phone number.
Many people and especially men, treat their first call to a woman that they just met and got a phone number from as a pure technicality – a brief, plain conversation during which all they need to do is to set up the time and place to meet for a date.
Are you going to ace the first call or spiral down in flames?
You can also use your phone’s blocking system to block out your number. You may feel deep down that it’s rude to do this, but you have to push this thought away. If the guy or girl turns out to be someone great, you will both laugh about blocking your number later. Saving the Nitty Gritty Conversation for Your Face-to-Face Time By “nitty gritty” I mean the part of conversation that will really help you to get to know someone.
Instead of asking about your date’s hopes and dreams, his childhood experience, her biggest life goal or regret, save all this talk until you meet. Ultimately the phone call before you meet should only be used as a way for you to feel more comfortable in meeting someone for the first time.
After any first date you are somewhat excited about, as soon as you finish recapping the night to your friends (“He said he’s into hiking and the outdoors, but I think we could work through it? Just do the industry standard desperately grasping for an inside joke from the night before text. I think it’s cute even to do the “had a great time/[joke referencing something obscure from the night]/hope you got home ok” text that night, but I personally like that sort of thing.
Other advice: If you actually like a girl, just text her first before you do a ton of tweets the next morning.
The online dating dance usually includes similar moves no matter who catches your eye. Eventually someone drops their phone number and the other responds.
