So you’ve had a stellar date with a dude you just met, and you’re wondering if and when you should send the first text. It’s not an exact science, but experts have opinions on the right and wrong times to do it anyway. And if the date was a few days ago and you haven’t heard anything, is it time for you to reach out yourself?
The three-day rule of our childhood is overrated. If it’s been three days since your date, your date could have easily gone on three more dates since he saw you. That’s why most millennials text within the first twodays. The closer to the date you text, the more likely it is that there will be a round 2.
While it’s totally possible that s/he just got tied up with his life since your date, you should make a move to make sure it’s not a red flag. Give it your best shot, and know when it’s time to let go of the fantasy!
