Dating etiquette phone number
Is it best to just let those go – or is there a polite way to say “If you would like to keep communicating, a few questions from your side would help”? Going up to a strange woman at a party and giving her your phone number before you got her name?
Today, calling someone on the phone is slowly but surely becoming a thing of the past.
Many people don’t even have a landline anymore and with mobile phones, there’s constant worries about battery life, health hazards from spending too much time on the phone and bad coverage.
On the other hand, people are often shy to call a mobile phone just to chat, in case they catch you at a bad time, out and about or someplace where it’s too loud to talk.
There are so many other forms of communication available, often sending a text message, instant message or email is easier than calling someone on the phone.
Not that long ago, the first steps in the dating game went something like this: meeting, (usually the guy) getting a phone number, (usually the girl) waiting for the phone call, first date, waiting for another phone call, second date, etc.
Waiting for that first phone call could be torture.
With friends and family that’s fine, especially if you know that they prefer communicating via text, message or emails.
But what about texting someone in a dating scenario.
