Dating and relationships can be complicated. It is especially difficult to find all the answers in the beginning of a relationship, when nothing is clear and the woman is not sure how to handle a situation with a man she is dating. One of the most commonly asked question women ponder is whether they should call the men they are dating, how to handle telephone calls to and from a man, and what is the calling protocol for calling your boyfriend or a man in a dating relationship.
Women write to me often asking me all those calling related questions in all possible variations.
First of all, many women want to know why men do not call after the first date. I understand that by first date women mean a date that occurred after initial introduction via an online dating site. That is the question that tortures women the most.
Meeting a man online is already much different from meeting someone via traditional channels, such as friends’ introductions, meeting at a bar or a restaurant, or through work. When you meet a man via traditional channels, you can pretty much say with assurance that after the first date he’ll call you unless some sort of disaster happens on your first date.
The rule of thumb is that a woman should not call a man after a first date. You probably already know that it is a man’s job to call a woman and ask her out on a first date.
You should understand that when you meet a man on a dating site, chances are the first in-person impression will be made when you actually meet on a date. So how do I know if he will call me? The answer could be simple: Don’t call him and you will find out.
