You will already be more comfortable with each other when you meeting in person because… On the other hand, if the first phone conversation doesn’t go very well, and if you have nothing to talk about, you will likely not enjoy each other’s company in person either, and therefore you are probably better off not wasting each other’s time and you should not meet at all.
Finding out whether you find each other’s company interesting over the phone requires more than a quick five-minute conversation.
If you have a great time talking on the phone, laughing, teasing each other, exchanging ideas that you both care about and finding each other’s company interesting on the phone, the benefit of such a conversation will be two-fold: first, you will already be interested and even attracted to each other since you have already enjoyed talking to each other which is a big part of romantic interest; secondly, by having a fun telephone conversation, you will have already “broken the ice,” so that your first date will likely be free of that typical awkwardness where two strangers are meeting and talking to each other for the first time.
This will make things easier and more fun for both of you.
Your first phone impression is a tricky mating stage that comes after exchanging emails online, but prior to meeting face-to-face.
It was from a 30 year old guy who I'd met a couple hours earlier at a get together of a mutual friend. It read, "It's Will." He then leaned in really close (which was sexy) and showed me how to return the text.
I still get a happy feeling and a smile when I see a text pop up from him.

), so excited to find out if my new man had left a message. A lot of divorced people have kids, so who is going to sit and talk to their new guy on the phone? But I have to say, part of me misses those long, meaningless conversations late at night, both sitting there not having anything to say but not wanting to get off the phone. In a real conversation, one that doesn't involve emoticons, like smiley faces, hearts and tear drops, and chat acronyms like LOL, 2NTE, H&K, or KOTL (kiss on the lips), men and women are so much more authentic.
In that regard, Will's use of electronics was the perfect match for my single mom lifestyle. Not only are they giving their honest reactions without having as much time as they need to think carefully about their next response, but when you hear someone's voice, there's a much more three dimensional discussion going on.
