After a date, there is always that awkward waiting period. How long should you wait to hit the person up and who should make the first move. Trust, we all have been there and we all thought the same thing. “I’ll wait for them to hit me up because I don’t want to seem thirsty”. This is sooo after school special, babysitters club. We are all supposed to be adults. If the date was good on both parts, trust by reading my last article you would know because you would not have went Dutch. Wink!
Of course striking up a conversation isn’t hard to do, especially living in the era of evolving technology. There are different ways to communicate, from email to Facebook to texting. However, what has been lost in the stitches of time is the more direct approach. In other words, simply pick up the phone and give the person a call. Although texting has its convenience, it can lack much emotion even with the icons to go with it. Remember a text can and will get lost amongst other texts, the key is to stand. Using the direct approach after a date seals the deal for another encounter, which means more to come.
With that being said, let’s get to that waiting period. Why should there even be a waiting period, especially if the date went well. The thought of a waiting period puts limitations on spontaneity and complicates things. Let’s reduce waiting periods to long lines and call waiting. Acting sooner than later establishes the momentum in the right direction, that’s if you’re serious.
