Normal call back time for dating
The bad news is, he will now dream up every reason not to call.
how long is the standard wait time for calling after a date?
I text messaged him today that I had a great time with him on our date and he wrote back that he had an amazing time as well. They don't want to come off as being clingy or let you know that you've "got" them yet, so a lot of times they wait. Sometimes it could be that they're busy or another reason. You ever see that dropped call commercial where the guy calls the girl the next day to say he had a good time, gets cut off right after he asks whether it was too soon to call, and then freaks?
However, he didn't call today and I thought that he would. This is the first date I've been on since getting out of a 3 year relationship, so maybe I am just expecting too much.
A man will not be thinking 10 steps ahead; he will be concentrating on the next step. It may seem clear-cut to you: If the first conversation went well and the two of you appeared compatible, he should and will call. A man decides whether or not to call by weighing the positives and negatives.
The good news is, the scale is tipped in favor of calling: If he got your phone number, then he received some encouragement.
