Give Men a Chance You may be used to men calling you the next day which feels great versus following the traditional three day rule.
But to me, waiting three days to start a conversation with a casual text is completely acceptable.
I’m all in favor of having high standards so long as you are realistic with your expectations. Instead, I’m going to encourage you to open up a little and give men a chance.
Offer a little positive encouragement and give them a chance to win you over.
You don’t need to say much; just keep it light and simple.
Respond to his comment on the game and then you can say you had a good time. That doesn’t make you over eager, too enthusiastic or desperate.
Thank goodness I followed this advice and ended up with my husband whose timing was slower than mine.
You chose not to respond to his casual text which was your choice of course.
On the date, he mentioned making future plans, going to sports games together w/ his tickets, etc. Three days is still a good response time in my book.
At the end of the date he suggested doing it again sometime. Some men wait a week or two – those are guys who aren’t always that interested.
Doing this made a huge difference for me and kept me calm.
Truth is, if I hadn’t been dating that other guy, I probably wouldn’t have found Paul’s timing acceptable and would have sabotaged things by prematurely kicking him to the curb.
