Moving From Email To The PhoneBy datinggirl On July 9, 2009 Under Dating Tips, Free Online Dating
When do we move over to the phone? This can be a common question after you have met someone on CupidMarket. Talking to each other via email should be comfortable before dialing each other on the telephone. Believe it or not, dialing that number and hearing the other person for the first time is just as nerve-wracking as the first date! Some put it off until they actually meet in person but sometimes it’s great to know what you’re going to hear when you get there. Don’t be surprised if your compatibility online is not the same over the telephone. We’re in a day and age where everyone is chatting online or texting that sometimes a telephone can actually be foreign to some!
You should get to know the other person when you begin online dating at CupidMarket via offline. At CupidMarket, you can send messages back and forth until you are comfortable. Ask the things you want to know and like the answers you receive. Don’t let anyone talk you into exchanging telephone numbers if you’re not interested in doing so. If the both of you already have an engaging conversation online and have moved past the standard questions that two people have when they first meet, dialing their number could be the next step. Remember, it’s always up to you.
As a woman, it would be wise and safe to get his number first and be the one to call. Personally, I have met people who will give their number right off the bat because they want to skip chatting online. Online dating at CupidMarket can help you find those who are a good match for you before you end up calling just anyone. If you’re not up to just calling someone who just gave you their number, be polite and suggest that you two chat first online. Use your discretion and if you’re not interested, there are many more possible matches.
Men are also weary of giving their phone number out and also want to take the time getting to know a woman by chatting before they talk over the telephone. You should always take the time to feel comfortable with someone and you may be able to gauge how the other person feels about the telephone. You can usually tell by the way your conversations are going. If your conversations are easygoing and consistent, you could even subtly drop the hint of a telephone call. If he or she is not feeling it, they will avoid the question or be straightforward about it. If it’s not the right time for them, be respectful about their choice.
There is nothing worse than trying to be pushy and demanding a telephone number from someone. It could possibly even end your conversations if the other person is not ready. If the time does come where the both of you agree it’s time to chat on the telephone, always remember that he or she is feeling just as nervous as you are with the transition. Take a deep breath and remember that you’re both in the same place.
