Today, I ran into a friend of a friend that I haven’t seen in a while. A very attractive Asian woman in her mid thirties who has been in and out of a relationship and has been actively dating for quite a few years. She is one of those girls who like to talk about dating and analyze different dating situations. I asked her if she was dating anyone, and she told me that she met this guy at a party about a month. They went out on three dates so far, and she kind of likes him. Out of curiosity, I asked her if he called her or texted her when he asked her out for the first time. She then told me: “Actually, he has never called me; he only texts.” I asked her if she was ok with that. She said that she wishes he called at least every now and then and it would be nice if he called her to ask her out, but since everyone seems to be only texting, she doesn’t really expect that anymore.
I am not sure what is more lame – the fact that guys only text or the fact that women actually accept it and settle for it, but one thing is clear – this situation is pathetic. The good news is that it should make it really easy for you, my male reader, to stand out from the rest. It doesn’t cost anything to pick up that phone and call her and ask her out. And if you like her and you want to see her, you should actually enjoy hearing her voice.
