Talking to your online date on the phone isn’t such a hard thing to do. You pick up the handset then dial his or her number. But, think about this: how about if it’s your first time talking to each other over the phone? Do you think that it would still be easy?
Phone Your Date to Establish A Deeper Connection
Definitely, you will feel your nerves when it’s your first time to phone your date after weeks or months of chatting. Before you do so, it’s important that you keep in mind the following golden rules:
1. Use the phone call to gauge your chemistry.
Chatting with your online date can be fun. But, talking to each other and actually hearing each other’s voice is a totally different story. Look at your phone call as an opportunity for you to see if there’s real chemistry between you and your potential date. It would also be nice to hear your potential match’s voice, right?
2. Phone calls are a great way to make plans.
Once again, talking about plans through chat is OK. There’s nothing wrong with it. However, if you talk about your plans over the phone, it delivers a different impact. Over the phone, promises sound more substantial.
3. Ask your date about your calls.
There are people who don’t really like making phone calls. You have to be sure that your date is comfortable with this type of communication. It might be working for you, but it might not be for your date. If he or she isn’t comfortable with phone calls, then you have to compromise and meet in the middle.
A lot of people think that phone calls are already outdated. However, it can still be a useful communication tool. Anastasia Date, for example, has a specific service available to members where one person can contact another over the phone. For more dating tips, read other posts on the blog.
