One common reason to delay a first date is due to an attempt to learn more about the other person. I found the first few minutes of the first date are worth more than dozens of emails.

online dating how to ask to meet-59

A grown woman (or man if the lady is asking) can decide in a few weeks if she would like to meet you – someone looking for a pen pal should do so somewhere else.

Your time is valuable and should be used to communicate with people truly interested in meeting you.

It’s not as if you hoping to “chat” with someone and end it there.

You want to talk with them and if things go well meet them.

Honestly, I have never felt comfortable talking on the phone for long periods of time (even to close friends) so I prefer to jump straight from the internet communication to meeting.

If you enjoy talking on the phone or prefer to do so before meeting someone, treat this step like you would the first date by asking for the phone number by the third email.

I never went for phone conversations as a stepping stone from internet communication to meeting.

I tried phone conversations early on but had a few bad experiences with “excessive calling” and one case where a girl took it as a personal offense every time I had to get off the phone.

This reason is acceptable, especially considering the hassle that some women end up going through when dating online.
