Many of you fervently felt that, barring an opportunity to ask in-person the best, manliest option, we can all agreecalling was the only way to go. But I honestly disagree and believe that texting for a date should be perfectly acceptable in some situations.
Being a gentleman is all about making the other person feel comfortable. This approach re-initiates some rapport, ensures your call is expected phone calls are so rare these days that they can be jarring! Smart, effective, and civil, while also demonstrating your chutzpah. Whether or not you text for a date directly, or just text to initiate contact leading to a phone call, the big question of course is this: What should you say? And does it even matter? The first is when you meet face-to-face and exchange s. In a way, that first text is basically you re-introducing yourself.
Maybe you met only in passing; maybe her memory of talking to you at the bar last night is a little fuzzy. Her interest in you might be on the bubble, and your initial text can sway her to one side or the other. Will it deepen her attraction and improve your chances of getting a date, or will it royally screw things up? When comedian Aziz Ansari and sociologist Eric Klinenberg teamed up to write a book on the conundrums of the modern, heterosexual dating scenethey conducted hundreds of focus groups and interviews, and also asked a large group of participants to open up their phones for study.
Fortunately, learning how to craft a charming, rapport-building, effective first text — one that will garner you a positive response, and a date — is simple. They show no personality or thought, and are thus more likely to be ignored. Heyyy-ing inhibits the ball before it even gets rolling. Engage in endless banter. I love Lucky Charms, but I really just like the marshmallows. Get caught up in an endless back and forth about scheduling. The bane of socializing in modern life — among friends and lovers alike — is trying to schedule a time to get together. And on it goes for days, perhaps weeks!
You should see about the same amount of blue and green bubbles on your screen, both in the of messages, and in their length. Text back right away. It looks desperate. More on timing below. Do: Refer back to the in-person interaction. Show that you were listening when you talked face-to-face and that your interaction left a memorable impact.
Friday, 7 pm at the Spicy Burrito. Which night would work best? Should you ask again?
The classic Brad Pitt rule kicks in here — but with a texting addendum. With a text though, I feel women may be less likely to do this. In short, when applying the Brad Pitt rule to texting, ask twice rather than once before cutting your losses. Use humor. Trying to be funny is chancy, because she might misinterpret your quip.
Wait to respond. Scientists have found that when they put rats whose brains are surprisingly like ours in a cage and allow them to receive a reward by pressing a lever, when the rewards come consistently — every time the lever is pressed — the rats start out eager and excited, but then lose interest and slow down their lever pushing. In contrast, when the lever-pushing only in a reward some of the time, the rats get amped up and push the lever like crazy. Unsurprisingly, the women said they were more attracted to the men who had liked them best than those who had rated them as average; we like those who like us.
But interestingly, they were most attracted to the set of men whose interest in them was uncertain. A similar principle undergirds both the rat and Facebook examples: uncertainty creates excitement, interest, and attraction. Waiting, anticipation, wonder — these feelings and behaviors boost dopamine in the human brain, driving you to want to know how an unresolved outcome will turn out.
But just how long do you wait?
Aziz found a wide variety of responses in his interviews — everything from 1. Everyone knows that most people check their phone at least semi-regularly, so waiting a day or more will strain credulity. A little humor? To charmingly, effectively initiate contact with a woman via text, simply look to incorporate the 3 elements of charisma into your first message: Presence : Refer back to your last in-person interaction, so she knows you were listening when you met and that the meeting was memorable.
Warmth : Send a personal rather than generic text; let her know how much you enjoyed meeting her; use humor.
