The first date went GREAT! Now you're sitting at home, waiting. Ask yourself this question: what are you waiting for? Did someone tell you -- a friend, an aunt, an article in a popular magazine -- that you should wait a certain number of days to call? Or did it say you shouldn't call at all? This type of advice treats dating as a game and treats your date as a game piece instead of a human being. If you want to go on another date, say so. Don't just sit at home waiting and hoping that he or she will call. Take the initiative, give 'em a call and end the suspense! You'll be on date number two before you know itl.
