When to reach out after a first date?

And who should do it?

You’ve gone on a first date, and you had a great time – and that’s exactly what you want to happen! Now you’re home thinking about the amazing time you had, but there’s a big question in your mind: “Do I text first, or wait for them to text me?” 

If you’re thinking about how great the date was, then say it! There’s no reason to play games and wait until they text you. This applies to men and women. While I firmly believe chivalry is alive and well, that doesn’t mean ladies need to wait for the guy to text them back.

My one rule: don’t send this text at 2am, if it’s that late it can wait until the morning!

If you had a great time, just make it clear – and it’s likely the feeling is mutual.
