Still following the “wait three days before contact” after the first date rule? You might be ruining your chances.

when to contact her after a date

You and she clicked. Maybe you made out. And now, you want to see her again. Awesome! Let her know … but follow these rules, because weird texting is as big a turn-off as bad hygiene or murse-carrying. I talked with my female friends to find their biggest pet peeves … avoid them, and enjoy date number two.

#1. DO IT QUICK
If we liked you, we want to hear from you. If we don’t like you, we still won’t like you if you wait two days to text. A simple I had a great time tonight will keep us from agonizing for hours and picking apart every angle of the date with our friends. Making sure you got home safe makes us feel protected and like you care about us. And if you didn’t like us? That’s cool—please don’t text us to tell us so. And while it may seem chivalrous to send the got home safetext even if you have no intention of seeing us again, it just serves as a mindf*ck. Didn’t see a report of a missing person on the news? Then we’re fine.
