Dating rules women after first date
I will never be the one to initiate contact with a guy after a first date ever again.
Now my ego is all bruised and his ego is probably all happy!!I said goodbye to my date rather abruptly last night as it was too cold where we were standing.He said it was nice meeting me, I said nice meeting you too..hugged and then I said bye, he looked back and said see you. It was a good date but not amazing and maybe if I had strong indication that he is interested, I would make the first contact. Call, text or email a "thank you, had a great time" type of deal, and then leave it up to him.Truth is, you aren't that attracted to this guy or we wouldn't be having this he did... I don't "expect" men to pay for me and if they do it once, I do it the next time.Usually I let guys pay for the first date if it's only coffee, perhaps because it's just not a big deal to me personally and I know some guys feel emasculated if the women pays at first.If I like the guy, I make it clear during the date. I should have listened to my guts about this instead of the suggestion of The Single Guy.
If he's too dense to pick up on that, or too timid to ask for another date, then I wouldn't want to date him anyway. Now my ego is all bruised and his ego is probably all happy!!
I will never be the one to initiate contact with a guy after a first date ever again. Don't expect a good relationship to fall into your lap. I realize that such an attitude might sound "easier said than done," but it's amazing how fast you get used to it once you start.
If you were interested, texting/calling was absolutely the right thing to do. Here's a good rule of thumb: never listen to The Single Guy.
Are you saying it's common for girls to send a thank you text after a first date? If you want to see him again, does it just kill you to show any interest at all?
You want him to do 100% of everything at this point, from pursuing you despite your obvious lack of interest, to planning the date to paying for the date. If he asks you out again, only this time for dinner, would you be ok with picking up the tab? If you could care less about ever seeing him again, blow him off.
Why is it up to the woman to send the thank you text?!
