The whole email and texting thing is great. Really, it is. But when that is all you do, you convey to another person that you are either too busy to meet up or not as interested as one would hope.
I have had some people want to email for the first three or four interactions and then they will progress to phone calls for the next three or so, ………………………….and then maybe we will meet. That is a lot of time and energy for a person that you may or may not “click” with once you meet in the physical form.
If you are in this to just meet new people, hang out, and see where things go, then great! Take as much time as you want. But, if you are truly looking to have a serious relationship and find that one person, then continue reading:
As suggested in an earlier tip, don’t text. Stick to phone calls. And two should be enough to determine if you even want to meet up and talk face-to-face. Get that cup of coffee (or tea) and sit down and have a real conversation. If either you or the other person is stalling, too busy, or just dragging heels, move on. Your interest has obviously not been peaked enough to even offer effort at this early/almost nonexistent stage of the game.
