Internet dating phone conversation
Even if you’re on excellent form, the same doesn’t necessarily apply to the person on the other end of the phone.
He or she might have just had an unexpected (and unwelcome) visit, or burnt the dinner.
So when I think of preparing for the first phone call, it’s not really about preparing for that call at all.
I found that detecting chemistry over the phone wasn’t something I was good at.
We’d be talking about some sporting event or family stuff but all I’d be thinking to myself over and over was, “After this conversation ends I’m going to ask her out….after the conversation ends I’m going to ask her out…after this conversation ends I’m going to ask her out…”.
And then I would jump all over the first chance I had but it would feel like something random when I asked that way and I remember a few women being caught off guard (which introduced a bit of awkwardness for us both).
Here are some tips on how best to handle that important first phone conversation.
So you were none the wiser after the first phone call than you were before?
