If you’re like most guys, the thought of calling a girl you like for the first time can be downright nerve-wracking. Will she think you’re a stalker? A creep? Or even worse, boring?
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In this blog post, we’ll give you some tips on how to make that first phone call go as smoothly as possible. Just follow our advice, and before you know it, you’ll be chatting away like old friends.
Do Your Research
Before you even start planning what you’re going to say, take some time to do a little research on the girl you like. Check out her social media accounts, read her blog (if she has one), and try to get a feel for her interests and hobbies. That way, when you do finally get her on the phone, you’ll have something to talk about that isn’t just the weather.
Keep It Short and Sweet
Let’s face it, phone conversations can be pretty awkward, especially when they’re with someone you don’t know that well. So when you’re planning what to say, err on the side of brevity. Just introduce yourself (if she doesn’t already know who you are), say that you’ve been thinking about her, and ask if she wants to grab coffee or a drink sometime. Then let her respond and take it from there.
Don't Be a creep
This one should be obvious, but it’s worth repeating: don’t be a creep! Don’t say anything that would make most normal people uncomfortable, and definitely don’t say anything that could be construed as sexual harassment. Just be friendly, funny, and respectful, and you should be fine.
End on a Good Note
Even if the conversation doesn’t flow as smoothly as you’d hoped, make sure to end things on a good note by telling her that you had a great time talking to her and that you’re looking forward to seeing her again soon. Then let her off the hook so she doesn’t feel like she has to keep talking just because she doesn’t want to be rude.
Making that first phone call to a girl can be tough, but if you follow our advice, it doesn’t have to be stressful. Just remember to do your research ahead of time, keep things short and sweet, avoid saying anything creepy, and end on a positive note—and before you know it,you’ll be chatting away like old friends in no time flat!
