Dear Rosie & Sherry, Even though I've been dating for several years, there's something about dating etiquette I'm not sure about. Does the timing of when a man asks for a second date send any kind of message to a woman?
When is a guy supposed to call a girl after a date to ask her out again? And what if a man changes his mind after telling his date that he'll call her?
Remember that she's waiting, and she doesn't know whether you're planning to call again.
Most women expect to hear from their date within the following day or two.She may expect that you'll ask her out again simply because most daters are aware that it often takes two dates to get a sense of whether the courtship has potential.Jerry Dear Jerry, There are some areas of dating in which there aren't any hard and fast "rules." However, when it comes to asking a woman for a second, third, or fourth date, or to ending the courtship at an early stage, certain practices are more considerate than others.Below are some "rules" that men will find are not overly difficult to follow, and that show consideration for the women they're dating.Rule #1 – Call Within 24 Hours If you plan to ask her out for another date, it's best to call within 24 hours, and certainly not more than 48 hours after your date ends.Follow this timetable whether you're enthusiastic about asking her out again, or have to be persuaded to ask her out again, or had second thoughts after you told her you would call.
