Here is a great YouTube video so be sure and watch it!
So you’ve been searching through the various profiles and exchanged a few emails, texts and are now going on that first date. Perhaps it is to one of those places I mentioned in the last blog: Peets, Starbucks, a sushi restaurant, or perhaps even the beach. You meet, can’t stop talking, laughing and just have an amazing time. You’re now at home and can’t stop thinking about him or her. YOU ARE DOING THE HAPPY DANCE!!!!
So now what? Do the old rules apply? Wait three days before you call? Who calls who? It used to be an absolute rule that the girl never calls the guy first. I say throw the rules in the garbage. This is the 21st century after all. I think it is perfectly okay to send an email or text or even a phone call after the first date to tell that person how much you enjoyed yourself. And you wouldn’t think twice about sending a thank you note to a hostess after a party or a thank you note after a job interview so why not thank the person you just went out on a date with. I know, it does make you vulnerable but what the heck what do you have to lose? A little pride maybe. Because it is possible that you may be doing the happy dance and the other person thought it was just a so so date. However, it is also possible that the other person is afraid to be vulnerable and let you know how much they enjoyed themselves so speak up, be brave and risk a little!
Here is a quote from Anaïs Nin that I absolutely love….“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” http://www.wildmind.org/blogs/quote-of-the-month/anais-nin-getting-unstuck
