Would you still date a man who waited a week to call

Let's say you met a man and you guys got to talking. During the half an hour or so he made you laugh, he didn't come on too strong, he was attractive, showed confidence, and was a gentleman but........ After wards he asks you for your home phone number..and you (yea you ladies) give him the number..everything is cool...but he waits a week to call you and asks you out. Would you still be interested in dating him?

Re: Would you still date a man who waited a week to call

If it were me, since there hasn't been a date yet I'd give him the benefit of the doubt and go out with him, why not? But if the date went well and he waited a week to call after that, I'd have to say no.

Re: Would you still date a man who waited a week to call

I just had a similar experience with a girl I met Saturday night. She gave me her number, and you can't help to think, "should I call her the next day?, wait two days?, should I text her first?" You finally get to the pont where you say fuck it, and you call whenever it feels right. I ended up waiting a day and texting her first, because that's what just felt right. She's 23, so my better judgment told me to text her first, and it worked out...
She texted me back, ended up calling me back tonight, and we talked on the phone for over an hour.

A lot of guys get so confused as to when and how long you should wait to call a girl after circumstances like what you just described, because so many people tell us so many different things as far as how long we should wait. Then they end up second guessing themselves, and that's why they hesistate. He could of been really busy too, who knows? The fact of the matter is, he called you, so I would give him a chance.

Most of you born and bred Williamsville girls are tough crowd to please though.

Re: Would you still date a man who waited a week to call

^ The difference is you're almost 40 calling someone a few years out of high school. That's a no brainer for most men.


In response to MariaMercedez, a week isn't entirely unreasonable but if it doesn't feel right don't bite. Without knowing anything more it's 50/50 that a date might or might not go well.

Re: Would you still date a man who waited a week to call

I think I probably wouldn't wait a week to call a girl, but if I was busy or other things were on my mind, it might take a week until I remembered to call. You might as well give it a shot, but I agree with MDL, see how it feels.

Re: Would you still date a man who waited a week to call

I wouldn't date a guy who called.
I hate talking on the phone.

If he texted, sure. Saw me in person, sure. Passenger pigeon, sure.

All idiosyncrasies aside, a week is really not that long when you think about it. If he waited a year, I can understand concern.
Perhaps he's just a busy dude.

If he didnt call me in a week, I would be mad, but then I would shag his brains out for making me wait like the little slut that I am lol.

Re: Would you still date a man who waited a week to call

Blackheart is right, depending on the type of dude he is. You're 29, so it's probably true for sure.

Some guys have these stupid ass rules about waiting to call and all this shit. Other people are just busy. Hell, he might have a lot of girls he's talking to, and called you up when they all were busy. LOTS of guys are like that.
Men will manipulate, think they can leave you to hang around the phone waiting on them, drop everything to see them when they call at the last minute, etc. So be wise to any games before he gets to playing them.

Re: Would you still date a man who waited a week to call

I don't know...I would be kind of pissed after a week. On the other side calling back right after one parted is also wired. I had a guy one who called me back after two month and I had already forgotten who that was...well that date didn't happen.
