I'm a male , 42 years old. I did OLD one other time before this and dated a woman for about 8 months before it fell apart. I met 3 women in that round of OLD before I started the relationship with the one woman. One of the other women I met only once and there was no chemistry and the other I went on 3 dates with I think and things were going good with her too so It was hard to choose the other one and tell her I was pursuing another person. In both cases of the 3 date woman and the 8 month woman, we emailed a while first and they were the one who initiated the meet, meaning they suggested it first in the email exchange.
So I finally started the OLD thing again and am emailing a few women. I guess the question I have for the community here is what do you guys think most women think about who should initiate the idea of meeting the first time? Do you think most women sort of 'expect' the guy to make the first suggestion about meeting or do you think its pretty even, 50-50?
I just don't have that much experience with the whole OLD thing yet and I don't want to appear to be dragging out the email exchange when they are sitting there waiting for me to suggest a first date or meet.
It so happens that the two woman I had multiple dates with, had alot of experience with OLD, had been doing it awhile. That could explain their decisiveness and cutting to the chase of the meet.
What do you guys think?
