Hello everyone! I’m “blogging on location” from the wonderful city of New Orleans. I’ve been here since Saturday to attend the weekend bachelorette activities of a fabulous bride-to-be. We descended upon the Big Easy during the New Orleans Jazz Festival. It’s been great friends, food, and the best music in the world!
As I was trekking through Hartsfield-Jackson, a very handsome guy was noticing me. I noticed him noticing me and then I noticed him right back. He ended up escorting me all the way to my gate (gentleman?) and then he asked me to take his number down. I joked that I didn’t want to risk forgetting that I met him since I was headed to a weekend of debauchery. He took mine and minutes later, he sends a text giving me his phone number.
Alright so, when men ask women to do the calling, is this a new twist to even the playing field of dating? Am I expected to call him when I get back? I actually don’t mind calling but I found it strange that he was so adamant about me calling him. I am so not a rules kind of girl, I just do what feels right. In this situation, the right thing to do is call him if he crosses my mind. If I don’t hear from him, I will make a phone call, and then wait. *sigh* Dating gets complicated for no good reason sometimes.
Guys, what do you prefer with number swap and first contact? When you are interested, does it matter who does the calling and when? Are women offended when you ask them to call you instead of vice versa?
Should I let the guy lead the contact and interest or do I put in effort and wait for reciprocation? What works best for you?
