Dating calls first
In these instances, the ‘three-day rule’ actually applies.
It gives enough time for the soup stains to dry and your indiscretions to fade from her mind, but doesn’t wait so long that she forgets your face, or name, or both. If you had a good time, and know she did too, don’t hesitate. If it was awkward, but you’d still like to see her again, hold off for a couple of days and then test those murky waters once more.
I think it’s partially my fault, since following your advice, I got out and dated more than one guy at the beginning and did not call the guys but generally waited for them to call (new concept for me and it actually worked, thanks! Eventually he rose to the top and we started dating exclusively and I continued to let him initiate most of the calls but now I don’t know if he’s gotten ‘settled in’, but when I don’t see him, he doesn’t call that often.
It’s not that I never hear from him, there is the occasional text, call etc., but for a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship, it’s less calling than I’m used to and although everyone is different with how much they call, I think even a goddess might get a little hurt/annoyed by this behavior lol.
And a ‘three-day rule’ is a tried-and-tested map to safety.
But, even if counting down the hours until you drop your date a line is the accepted norm, why would you want to play it safe?
At any rate it is one of the best, if not the best, relationship, I have ever been in, however there is only one thing that bothers me and that I don’t know how to address it.
I really appreciate your advice and have listened to your CD over and over again.
I also followed your Tao of Dating principles, which was beyond enlightening for me, as it turned the tables and made me responsible for doing my own housework and trying to be the goddess and I still think ‘What would a goddess do?
