He walked me to my car and asked me if I'd like to get together for dinner some time. By the look on my face, I could tell he realized this. From that moment forward, I was cast into the world of dating in the electronic era.
Pretty much in shock that he was interested in me, a 41-year-old divorced single mom of two young kids, my voice was shaking when I answered, "Okay." He asked me for my number and as I was saying it, he was punching it into his mobile address book. I dated Will for about four months, and during that time, I don't think we ever spoke on the phone. Every date was arranged via text, and when he just wanted to reach out to say hi, see how my day was, or say something really cute, he would send one, causing my knees to buckle and my heart to pound furiously. At least now, if you meet a guy and he doesn't call you, you know right away because you have your cell phone attached to your body at all times!
But stay casual about it - if you send an angry, demanding text right away, he's definitely not going to answer.

When it comes to dating, one of the most frustrating things ever has to be when you’re talking to a dude – and out of nowhere, he stops answering your texts. Basically, whenever he doesn’t call or text you back can drive you CRAZY. In these situations, it can be tough to figure out what to do. It's the easiest and fastest way to push someone away and make them really annoyed.
The hopeful part of your brain wants to believe something happened, like his phone died or he’s really, really busy with other stuff or maybe your phone is broken and the text just didn’t go through. I know how frustrating it is to go without a response, but please don't start sending a bunch of texts, calling, attempting Facebook messages just in case and texting his friends to see if he's with them.
Or maybe he sensed a bit of desperation (“You’re going to call me, right? Communicating either anxiousness or desperation early on before a man knows you is a sure attraction-killer. Reason #5: He Lost Your Number or Forgot to Call Yes, sometimes this really happens. Unfortunately, when it does, some women fill their heads with all kinds of not-so-happy stories that don’t make them feel great.
Now with these 5 reasons, what do all of the situations of how a man behaves and whether or not he calls have in common?
(Of course, I might have done something different if given the chance, but I will never say I wasn’t enough.) If he doesn’t call, that’s his issue. That way, I don’t waste any time chasing someone who honestly isn’t dying to know me more (but is just too polite to say so).
He didn’t realize he had the whole package in front of him, ripe for the picking.
But I have to be honest, there really was something that felt impersonal about dating someone and communicating only via electronic methods. HOW they say something, the way they laugh, or their passion on a certain topic is how you really get to know what's in their heart. It's a huge time saver, it's succinct, it can be really sexy.
Plus, it's nice to have written things saved if it's a text that means something to you.
