Tell It To Me Straight, Guys

So. What's up with this "3-day-wait" I keep hearing about?

As in... the waiting until at least three days to call a girl after you take her out.

Prospect #1 took me out Wednesday. A good time was had by all, but I've yet to hear from him.

Prospect A (as opposed to #2... which implies he's in second place, which he's not) took me out Thursday. An absolutely fabulous time was had by all, but I've yet to hear from him, either.

I actually have a big time crush on Prospect A and am really hoping to hear from him. We have great chemistry and great conversation.

I'll debrief later, but for now... I'm really curious to hear what y'all have to say.

The next day is usually a good idea...

If they play the waiting game I just go out and get a new one...

Who makes up this etiquette? And who says we should all live by it?

It just seems to complicate things and make everyone overanalyze things...

Also, this reminds of the Seinfeld episode--The Boyfriend. You know, the one with Keith Hendandez...

Next day is how I roll.

Can't believe we've had this many comments without someone quoting the following immortal scene from "Swingers":

Mike: So how long do I wait to call?
Trent: A day.
Mike: Tomorrow.
Sue: Tomorrow, then a day.
Trent: Yeah.
Mike: So two days?
Trent: Yeah, I guess you could call it that, two days.
Sue: Definitely, two days is like industry standard.
Trent: You know I used to wait two days to call anybody, but now it's like everyone in town waits two days. So I think three days is kind of money. What do you think?
Sue: Yeah, but two's enough not to look anxious.
Trent: But I think three days is kind of money. You know because you...
Mike: Yeah, but you know what, mabey I'll wait 3 weeks. How's that? And tell her I was cleaning out my wallet and I just happened to run into her number.
Charles: Then ask her where you met her.
Mike: Yeah, I'll ask her where I met her. I don't remember. What does she look like? And then I'll asked if we fucked. Is that... would that be... T, would that be the money?
Trent: You know what. Ha ha ha Mike, laugh all you want but if you call too soon you might scare off a nice baby who's ready to party.
Mike: Well how long are you guys gonna wait to call your babies?
Trent, Sue: Six days.

Micah, I can always count on you for a great movie throwback or a fab musical suggestion. But why do you have to tease me with a flick tied to Sin City? You're evil.

As for Prospect A... call off the dogs. He rang me last night. So he's not totally written off, after all ;)

I know my role.

And Vegas is just a flight away.
