However, every contact wants me to call him by the 2nd message - and doesn't appear to have even read my profile.
My profile is very tame - albeit conservative and I am surprised by this response. Generally speaking, how long should you wait before you connect by phone or in person?
Also, I seem to only find men who mark off their religion as "other." What does that mean? I recently tried on-line dating in hopes of genuinely meeting someone.
Take a deep breath and have a plan before you dial. If you want to invite them on a fancy dinner date, don’t buckle under pressure and ask them to join a group paintballing session instead. No matter how horrific your day has been, keep things positive and upbeat. It’s exciting to get that special someone on the phone.
But if you’re on the fence, go ahead and invite them to several group activities before making up your mind! If you’ve met someone online and this is your only real life conversation, make a good first impression. It can be challenging to steady your nerves, so feel free to rehearse beforehand! You might wonder how to keep the conversation going. Even if you have crazy chemistry and get swept up in a subject - keep it short.
And if you’re dripping with flop-sweat and stammering nervously every time you have to pick up the phone to call a girl, you’re never going to be that guy.
