So you got their phone number…now what?

You meet a nice guy or girl and You hit it off. You got their phone number but how long should You wait before giving them a call?

If youve seen the movie Swingers, You know what Im talking about. Lets look at some of the possible scenarios You may find yourself in:

Call Right Away (within the first half-hour)

How You see it: Just making sure they got home safely; or You just really enjoyed their company and You wanted to talk some more
How they see it: I just talked to this person 30 minutes agowhat else could they want to talk about?

Call 3-6 Days Later

How You see it: Didnt want to seem too desperate and/or wanted them to spend a few days thinking about why You werent calling.
How they see it: They didnt call because they were trying to look cool; what do they look like again?

Call 7+ Days Later

How You see it: Been busy and havent gotten around to itmaybe the other person will want me more if I show them how little I care.
How they see it: Who are You?

the truth is, if You meet someone for the first time, how likely are they to remember You after a week? Now add drinks into the equation and youre lucky if they remember You the next day. Call the next day if You want to be safe, wait two days if You enjoy living on the edge.
