I check the phone tone to make sure that the phone works.
I check to see if my cell phone is open. Maybe he has left a message and it hasn't shown yet on my screen.
I check my voice mail.
Like many women, I wonder when I have a new romantic prospect, when is he going to call?
A man who is interested in knowing more about you and ready for a relationship usually calls between 24h-72 hours after the date.
The average is 48 hours. Beyond that, his interest is not strong enough for some different reasons listed in this article.
First fact to know about is, according to Dr. John Gray (Mars and Venus on a Date), men are like emotional camels.
Camels can walk through the desert for days without the need of any water. Same applies to men; men can spend days without a need for a feminine presence.
I find this a good explanation.
You and I know that the majority of men don't seem to be in a hurry to connect deeply with a woman. Another reason why man don't call is they have to decide when it is the right moment to call.
Men are really sensitive to rejection. They have the jitters just to think that they have to call that girl. Or worst, she may even not call back!
According to the book, "What Men Want", by Gerstman, Pizzo, Seldes, sometimes, just the though of leaving a message and the girl doesn't return the call is a major rejection experience for them. It could be an enough reason for why man don't call.
Why man don't call can be that afterwards, as he is reminiscing the first date conversation topic that you both had, he feels that you are not his type.
You don't need to take it personally because you have had those same feelings for other guys in the past. It's part of dating.
