Now if things go well initially you may want to have a back-up plan for how you can continue the date.
Find a fun activity in town (mini golf, bowling, live music) and see if she’s interested in going right then and there.
Here’s how to get the most out of texting, and keep the other person begging for more… Texting is similar to talking, and should be done in real time.
This is especially important when a question is asked.
Is one of you making all the running, and the other holding back?
Is one of you insisting on a particular venue or activity, despite the other’s wariness?
Taking advantage of the lax situation and forgoing a reply for several hours or days seems lazy and uninterested.
Plus, mixing in an activity means you’re more likely to have fun together and avoid awkward tension.
Here we get even nearer to ‘real life’ dating – though there are still some pitfalls. If things are going well with emails and phone calls, it’s best to suggest a meeting sooner rather than later.
This isn’t just so that you can find out if someone is truly a potential partner – it’s also to protect you against disappointment.
From personal experience, I know texts can be misleading.
Chemistry and banter while texting is calculated, and the person might not be nearly as amiable in person.
