Okay, fill me in! If a guy is interested in you, and gets your email addy or phone number, approximately how long does he wait to actually make the contact? Is it different for everyone? Or is there some general rule that I don't know about? Just curious here.

My experience has been that a guy who's really interested will call/email within a day or two.

I agree with the other post a day or two...maybe 3 if he is trying to play it cool. But it is hard to judge. I'd give it a week though...but if no contact is made by then I'd say he's not going to call or write. :o) Good Luck!

Usually within 1-3 days (a lot of guys follow a "3 day rule"), sometimes up to a week. It does vary a lot though.

You know, it's funny, of course I *know* about the "3 day rule" from Swingers, but I've never actually had a guy follow it who was interested in me, nor do any of my guy friends follow it with a woman they like.

Forgive my ignorance--but what is the "3-day rule" from "swingers"?

Actually, come to think of it, the 3-day rule was something guys I dated in college followed religiously - it drove me nuts at the time b/c this was pre-Swingers and I'd never heard of the "rule" - I just thought they should call me immediately!

And you're right, the men I date now - adult, mature men - really don't follow that rule. Thanks for pointing that out.

You're not the only ignorant one so don't worry. I've heard of the 3-day rule but what's "swingers?"

"Swingers" was a movie in the 90's about a bunch of single men and they would always wait 3 days to call a girl.

Come to think of it I met a guy last Friday night and he didn't call until Wednesday. By then I had already forgotten about him so I laughed really hard when I heard who it was. To myself anyway. He said he's call later. I still haven't heard back from him. All well.

Oh, it's a very fun movie about dating in So Cal with Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau (sp?).
