Question from Luci M.: I met a guy online who seems really great. We went on a date and everything went well! We even planned our second date. It’s been three days but he hasn’t called me yet. Is it weird if he hasn’t called yet? Should I call or text him? 

Online dating isn’t always easy, especially when it comes to the etiquette of calling back. Leave it up to the relationship experts who have dating advice that may provide some comfort.

Dating Advice: When Should He Call Back?

Suzanne K. Oshima, Matchmaker: It really depends on when the second date is planned for. If it’s next week, then I don’t think it’s a big deal that he hasn’t called you yet.  But if the date is tomorrow, then that could be an issue. The most important thing to know is that if a man is really interested in you, he will pursue you. My dating advice: You shouldn’t have to call or text him. He will call or text you and he will make proper arrangements for the second date. If he’s not calling/texting you soon after the first date, he might just see you as a “filler.”

Robert Manni, Guy’s Guy: When a guy is interested in a woman he’s just met, he’ll get in touch with her ASAP to see her again. Let’s assume this one time there were extenuating circumstances that prevented this guy from contacting you. It could be work or a personal situation. There is nothing wrong with texting or calling him once. If he’s interested, you will definitely hear back. If he doesn’t respond, my dating tip is that it’s probably time to move on.
