If your date becomes your boyfriend then there will be plenty of opportunities for both of you to let your hair down.
But a guy will most likely be a little scared if you knock back a few shots before dinner.
How should I prepare for the first phone call with someone I’m talking to online? These are questions a reader asked me recently and he was wondering if recommended handling the first phone call just like I recommend for planning for first date conversations.
Now the first thing I want to say is that early on in my online dating experience I did move from emails to phone calls and then first dates.
After emailing for a while, the next stage is to talk.
You may use phone, with the growth of social media, you may prefer to use video calling on Skype, Google , or Facetime on Macs.
Six to ten email exchanges (3-5 from each of you) is a good rule of thumb.
When I offer advice on the first date, I recommend lots of planning (see my post on first date conversations that I mentioned above). How can you turn an awkward first date with the man of your dreams into the relationship you’ve dreamed of? But exactly how do you find out without asking him outright and getting a look like you’ve just asked him to marry you?Never empty your glass – You might be shaking like a leaf and nothing would settle your nerves more than to knock back the glass of wine on your table, but trust me, it’s not worth it.If you want to stay in control of the date and keep him interested then take it easy and don’t overindulge.
