I met a guy online recently through e-Harmony. We'd both only signed up for three months and went through the "guided communication" that they have on there, leading up to emails. We've since texted a few times and last night he called me. We talked for a while and set up a drink date for Thursday evening.
Now granted, I haven't met him in person yet, but I think I might really like this one. We've got a lot in common, he's older than I am, we work in the same field, etc.
I don't want to screw this one up. I know that I can come on too strong, like texting or emailing right away after the first date, etc. I don't want to scare him away.
First question: How do I "guarantee" (as much as one can) a second date?
Second question: If things go well, should I wait for him to contact me? I really don't want to scare him off by chasing him, but part of me is always worried that the guy won't call if I don't contact him. (Despite everyone saying that the guy generally prefers to do the "chasing"!)
