Internet Dating Textetiquette Texting Tip #4 for Singles: Phoning Timing
Indeed, once the man has a woman’s phone number, then what are the expectations between the sexes of timing?
I know these things got covered very specifically by fictional single guys who did terribly with women in the fun Hollywood movie, “Swingers,” where the dateless girlfriendless guy advises his buddy not too phone a woman too soon, that he should wait at least 2 or 3 days.
Well, go ahead. See how that works for you. Because trust me, beautiful women with engaging personalities have other men pursuing them. So, g’head. If you get her phone number, let’s say on a Friday or Saturday night and you wait until next Wednesday or Thursday to phone her, in her mind, you’re long gone. Kevin Bettencort of Las Vegas A/C had the right answer for the only really sort of acceptable texting prephone call is to ask her if phoning tonight at 7:30 pm is a good time for her. Yup. Man up. Phone her.
Now, not every phone number exchange between singles is accomplished in the swing night club lifestyle of the Los Angeles singles scene bar life. In fact, if you are implementing what I suggest to both single men and women, then you’re easily and readily meeting at least 5 new people each and every day as you Do Your Daily 5. It’s all of those sort of situations where more singles really do typically meet casually in ways that lead to lasting romance and relationships.
So let’s say you’re a single guy and you met this attractive woman (ok, in your mind you’re thinking, “hot chick.”) this evening at the Starbucks Happy Hour. You manned up, approached her, chatted her up, and you got her phone number.
Maybe you sent her a short text like, “Nice to meet you. You’re beautiful,” tonight after you got home. And then you need to phone her within a 48 hour range after meeting her. Because you two have actually met in person, you can do a little more texting than a guy who met her online.
If you got her phone number at the internet dating site then you need to phone her I am even going to say within 36 hours. You don’t have to phone her within hours of getting her phone number, but you do need to phone her within about 1 day of her giving you her phone number. Because at an online dating site, you two have already agreed to the two of you meeting to go on a first date. You don’t need to worry about her now rejecting your approach.
The only reason she would now reject your approach is if you annoy her with wussy text messages for a few days, phone her to chat, and then only sort of wimp out and bookmark a maybe date in over a week away.
If you make her wait too long for the first phone call or for the first date, you’ll annoy her and she’ll just write you off figuring you’re just not that into her. And then a guy phones, gets a tepid response from her, thinks online dating just doesn’t work for him, or that single women are just too high maintenance. It’s because of confused and contradictory expectations about texting and phoning timing.
Ideally, guys, phone her within 24 hours of your getting her phone number via having met online. Doing so you’ll demonstrate your manliness and real interest in meeting her.
