Dating Challenge: Don’t Call Him The Day of The Date

You have a date scheduled with a guy this Saturday. When Saturday rolls around, you’re tempted to call or text your date to confirm or make sure he still wants to go out, but you shouldn’t. Instead, wait. Don’t call your date, text, email, Instagram, Snapchat him or anything else.

The reason why you want to do this is so that you can see whether your date would have followed through on his plans with you. Say you don’t contact your date and he doesn’t contact you at all on Saturday, then you know he wasn’t really interested in you to begin with. Some guys will make plans that they don’t necessarily intend to keep. So you don’t want to nudge a guy into a date by reminding him yourself that your supposed to go out.

If a man really wants to see you he isn’t going to forget about the plans you made or flake on them by not contacting you on the day of the date. So I challenge you to not call or text a man first on the day of your date. This way, you won’t ever have to wonder if the date wouldn’t have happened if you didn’t take the time to contact him.

Do yourself a favor and give yourself a chance to see where a man’s head is really at!

  1. When I first read this, I wasn’t sure if I agreed with you, because, well, what happens if you accidentally stand a guy up because you didn’t confirm? Then I remembered that I have often not contacted guys I wasn’t particularly “feeling,” and found myself very relieved when they didn’t contact me either. I think, if we’re honest with ourselves, we can usually tell before the day of if they’re going to flake on us or not.

    • You make a great point Elizabeth! I also think it’s important to remember that if a man is really interested in seeing you he isn’t going to be deterred by the fact that you haven’t contacted him first on the day of the date.

      Thanks for checking out my post and sharing your thoughts!
