Does screening guys with a phone call before meeting them help, or does it mean you’re discounting potentially great people because of an annoying phone manner? My dating hero, Matthew Hussey, tells us to progress online dating into a phone call or meet up as quickly as possible. I suggested a phone call with three people I matched with from online dating apps. Here's what happened.
Most were just hi or your standard offensive proposition, but I did dating phone call out my phone number to a handful of people and went on a total of three dates, including one at a super sketchy Tim Hortons. Very few people took me up on the offer to talk on the phone. It made me wonder how something that so recently felt so essential to communication, was now practically a social taboo.
I was sick of dating at this point, plus I was trying out jokes in the back of a pool hall on a crappy open mic night.
